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.

Not her best

I've listened to a lot of Jodi Picoult's books. This is one of the weakest. I really liked the main character, but the rest of the characters are based on simple stereotypes that at times made me wince. And there are songs throughout. Horrible, awful, grating singing. I had to fast forward through it. I don't recommend this book.

Realistic music quality please...or don't do it.

I strongly agree with previous comments about the quality of the music. I am a big fan and have read all her books, but how this issue escaped the review of her editing team, I can't imagine. Maybe it was my MP3 player settings, but I couldn't reach for the mute button fast enough when those songs were played. It was disappointing that I could never hang in there long enough to hear the lyrics, I'm sure they were meaningful. It was especially disheartening considering the topic of the book and the description of the main character's voice. I wanted to believe those songs were sung by her.....no way. Definitely worth a listen, but have your finger poised over the Fast Forward button.
