Every life has a soundtrack. All you have to do is listen.

Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxterís life. Thereís 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 marked the years she spent trying to get pregnant.

For better or for worse, music is the language of memory. It is also the language of love.

In the aftermath of a series of personal tragedies, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. When an unexpected friendship slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some peopleóeven those she loves and trusts mostódonít want that to happen.

Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. Itís about people wanting to do the right thing for the greater good, even as they work to fulfill their own personal desires and dreams. And itís about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.

  • Excellent Read

    Couldnt put book down Jodi Picoult Did it again!!!! story draws you in from the first page. Lots of guesses as to how it ends. TERRIFIC!!!!!

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Biased and poorly developed

    I have read almost every Jodi Picoult book published. Although I do not always agree with or even like the endings, I enjoy her writing as it is easy to read and gives my brain a break from having to work too hard. The most recent novel, Sing You Home, is a far cry from her norm. Besides the fact that there are gaping holes in the story big enough to jump through, you are given two very extreme sides to a hot topic: homosexual marriage and same-sex parenting. This story paints the anti-homosexual Christians as the oppressive right wing, narrow-minded, unsympathetic, and intolerant extremists while the homosexuals are portrayed as bullied, persecuted and loving heroes. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of Tolerance is sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one's own. Doesnít that mean that you have to be tolerant of me just as I am tolerant of you? Even if I believe that same sex marriage should not be legal? I am a Conservative, go to church every Sunday, am opposed to birth control and abortion and think sex outside of marriage is a sin. When was the last time someone celebrated my diversity? I think this book was written hastily to satisfy an agenda since the story is so poorly developed. Unless you proudly fly your rainbow flag for the world to see, you will be better off skipping this book.
