Publisher's Summary

Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. There’s the melody that reminds her of the summer she spent rubbing baby oil on her stomach in pursuit of the perfect tan. A dance beat that makes her think of using a fake ID to slip into a nightclub. A dirge that marks the years she spent trying to get pregnant.
And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she loves and trusts most - don’t want that to happen.
Jodi Picoult has proven once again that she is a master storyteller, always bringing grace, compassion, and thoughtfulness to life’s most difficult questions. Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. And it’s about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.

A Solid Listen


I enjoyed this book the topic was interesting and the characters were reasonably well developed- if predictably stereotyped. I don't think this book will be for everybody on either side of this particular fence but it is a solid delivery of the Picoult formula of relationships and controversial, headline grabbing moral quandaries.

Found the 'songs' largely unnecessary but good solid narration (helped by not forcing actors to do younger characters as with 'Handle')

eye opening

I have to say as a christian catholic I was very disturbed by the way the author represented Christians in her story, I know that there are extremist out there but they are not true Christians, a true christian does not physically or mentally hurt others, They have forgotten the most important thing that Jesus teaches. Love and understanding.. Having said that it was very eye opening to get a view of what same sex relationships must endure on a daily basis. I have much more empathy for there plait in this world. Anyone who has ever judged homosexuality should listen to this story. For me It has opened up my heart more for the suffering that they endure.
