Praise for Untethered

“A complex story about a nontraditional but often familiar family. … Timmer handles the sensitive, emotionally charged nature of her plot with reverence and openness, avoiding harsh judgments. Untethered is a beautiful mosaic of love’s many fragments, no matter how shattered.”—Shelf Awareness
“Examines human relationships and the concept of family in a very modern, relatable setting.”—REDBOOK
“Gripping and thoughtful new novel” – Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of The One and Only
“Captivating characters and a plot that will keep the pages turning through to the climactic end.”—RT Book Reviews
“A thoughtfully written and ultimately uplifting celebration of families that are not bound by blood or by law but by love.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Harper Lee famously wrote that you can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. In Untethered, Julie Lawson Timmer makes mincemeat of this old chestnut, proving that a modern family can indeed consist of people who find their own way to each other, however circuitously. The pulse of the story is in the journey, and the triumph is in the unexpectedness of the destination. If you’re inclined to gently strong-arm your book club, Timmer’s is a poignant page-turner worth going to the mat for.”—Elisabeth Egan, author of A Window Opens
