(From the publisher):
Clara Marsh is an undertaker who doens't believe in God. She spends her solitary life among the dead, preparing their last baths and bidding them farewell with a bouquet from her own garden. Her carefully structured life shifts when she discovers a neglected little girl, Trecie, playing in the funeral parlor, desperate for a friend.
It changes even more when Detective Mike Sullivan starts questioning her again about a body she prepared three years ago, an unidentified girl found murdered in a nearby strip of woods. Unclaimed by family, the community christened her Precious Doe.
When Clara and Mike learn that Trecie may be involved with the same people who killed Precious Doe, Clara must choose between certain loneliness and the perils of binding one's life to another.
