Publisher Description

"Who put Ellen in the blackgum tree?"  

Decades after trespassing children spotted the desiccated corpse wedged in the treetop, no one knows the answer. 

Kate Thrush and her former college professor, Dr. Judith Kane, travel to Cinderwich, Tennessee in hopes that maybe it was their Ellen: Katie's lost aunt, Judith's long-gone lover. But they're not the only ones to have come here looking for closure. The people of Cinderwich, a town hardly more than a skeleton itself, are staunchly resistant to the outsiders' questions about Ellen and her killer. And the deeper the two women dig, the more rot they unearth … the closer they come to exhuming the evil that lies, hungering, at the roots of Cinderwich. 

"Cinderwich is a fantastic, spooky treasure from Cherie Priest — a mystery wrapped in Appalachian lore and family secrets, with so much heart. An absolute must read." 
— Fran Wilde, double Nebula winner and author of The Book of Gems 

"Cinderwich is, at its heart, a compelling story of loss and the lengths we'll go to reckon with it, and it's a hell of a creepy ghost story too." 

— Kelly Baker, author of Final Girl: And Other Essays on Grief, Trauma, and Mental Illness 

"A maestro of the uncanny, with Cinderwich Cherie Priest weaves a masterful tapestry of the extraordinary and the everyday, flipping the small-town mystery on its head. The book reads like a cozy, the way you'd feel wearing your favorite sweater. Her storytelling prowess draws readers into its intricately crafted world. With each page turned, Priest proves herself a visionary wordsmith. A wild, entertaining ride, Cinderwich resonates long after the last page is turned." 

— Maurice Broaddus, Stoker Award finalist and author of Sweep of Stars 

"Cinderwich is one of those atmospheric stories where the unease comes from inside as much as from an external threat. It's a ghost story, in the truest sense and I loved the questions it asked. It's a quiet story about grief and the ripple effects trauma leaves on the the people surrounding the trauma. It's a moody, atmospheric tale that delivers fear and hope."  

— Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo Award-winning author of The Calculating Stars 

"How about a road trip to a creepy, old town full of secrets with your two best friends to solve a murder-mystery. Earl grey tea, ghosts, and secrets — a perfect cozy horror/mystery to read during Halloween. No bookmark required." 

— Sadie Hartmann, author of Stoker Award finalist and author of 101 Horror Books to Read Before You're Murdered
