Teresa Hirst is the author of Flowers of Grace, a novel inspired by a true story, published in February 2015 by Little Forest Big Spring Press. This story of love and loss, friendship and forgiveness—set in an upscale St. Louis boutique—is a heart-wrenching book club choice.

She is also the author of the nonfiction inspirational book, Twelve Stones to Remember Him: Building Memorials of Faith from Financial Crisis published by Walnut Springs Press in January 2014. In this book, true stories of the recession’s economic, emotional and spiritual impact on twelve families reveal how truths from an ancient memorial can help us cope with faith during our own difficult crossings.
