Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction
Flowers of Grace, a novel inspired by a true story, is a heart-wrenching book club choice that one reviewer called "a tribute to love and friendship."
Set in an upscale St. Louis boutique amid a fragile economic climate when retail customers are trading brick and mortar stores for online shopping, Flowers of Grace is a story of love and loss, friendship and forgiveness.
Still mourning a broken engagement, Grace inherits a hibiscus with a legacy she fears she will kill. Doubt in her capacity to nurture anything prompts her to bring the plant into the clothing store she manages, and the dynamic personalities of the female staff band together to help it bloom. Grace and the hibiscus blossom through a wedding and a birth, but its unexpected death pushes her to face false assumptions, opening a path for new love to appear.
The simple gift is more than a plant. When it blooms, so does she. But when it dies, she fears love will too.

Advance Praise

"This is a beautiful story celebrating different kinds of female connections, including those that we may feel we make imperfectly - we especially need each other in our "not-quite-in-full-bloom" stages" - a Goodreads reviewer
"...truly brings to light how women need women, how we are uniquely invested in overcoming problems, how we grow stronger as an individual when we embrace our differences by communicating, sharing a simple laughter, or extending sympathy in times of sorrow." - a Goodreads reviewer
