When Char Hawthorn's husband dies unexpectedly, she is
left questioning everything she once knew to be true: from
the cozy small town life they built together to her
relationship with her stepdaughter, who is suddenly not
bound to Char in any real way. Untethered explores
what bonds truly form a family and how, sometimes, love
knows no bounds.
Char Hawthorn, college professor, wife and stepmother to a
spirited fifteen-year-old daughter, loves her family and the
joyful rhythms of work and parenting. But when her husband
dies in a car accident, the â€śstepâ€ť in Charâ€™s title suddenly
matters a great deal. In the eyes of the law, all rights to
daughter Allie belong to Lindy, Allieâ€™s self-absorbed
biological mother, who wants to girl to move to her home in
While Allie begins to struggle in school and tensions mount
between her and Char, Allieâ€™s connection to young Morgan, a
ten-year-old-girl she tutors, seems to keep her grounded.
But then Morgan, who was adopted out of foster care,
suddenly disappears, and Char is left to wonder about a
possible future without Allie and what to do about Morgan, a
child caught up in a terrible crack in the system.
