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

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 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 people—even those she loves and trusts most—don’t want that to happen.

Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. It’s 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 it’s about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.

I thought this book was really insightful and addressed many controversial issues. I felt that Picoult was able to provide an unbiased view on this in the way the book was structured. Overall it was a really good read and definitely worth it, then ending was a good twist and I didn't want it to end!

This novel tells the compelling story about the rights of unborn children and the rights of gays and lesbians to love and be loved and to have a family. Jodi Picoult has written a timely story about a woman's desire to be a mother and reminds me about how excited I was when I learned that I was pregnant 30 years ago. This book also gives me insight into what my sister Patti and her husband went through to try to get Patti pregnant by IVF. Thankfully, Patti and John were able to adopt a beautiful little baby girl from China after trying to have a baby for so many years. Finally, this book reminds me of when my only daughter, Shannon, was about six years old and her desire for a little sister. I wasn't in a committed relationship and I wish that I had gone to a Fertility Clinic so that I could have had another baby and given my daughter a sibling. This book is well written and I enjoyed listening to the songs after each chapter of the novel. The songs gave me a reference to the protagonist, Zoe's, career as a music therapist. I will definitely read this book again!

Good enough to recommend:)

Somewhat predictable, but a lot of books are...good subjects and always somewhat sadly fascinating at the utter stupidity of some people to hold onto religion so literally that you spend most of the time pushing people away rather than embracing love! Another good one off the Jodi Picoult list:)
