Summary (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.

  • "Haunting, thrilling, and beautifully drawn, Tethered is a novel full of heart. Love, and the search for love, fuels MacKinnon's cast of characters. Settle somewhere comfortable: you'll be reading all night." Amanda Eyre Ward
  • "In Tethered, Amy MacKinnon starts with an unlikely narrator and an unlikely setting and delivers up that most unlikely (and sought-after) of results: a deeply engaging and memorable book. Brava." Jon Clinch
  • "Amy MacKinnon is a rarity among debut authors. Not only does she possess the raw talent, she already knows how to use it. Tethered is as good as it gets: a haunting plot, an exquisitely flawed heroine, and sophisticated, powerful prose that deftly explores the ties that bind us all, to each other, and to the complex worlds around us. A brilliant debut." Kristy Kiernan
