Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback from the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author whom USA TODAY calls a “master of the page-turner,” comes the spectacular story of a woman’s complex quest to form a family.

Zoe Baxter has spent ten years trying to get pregnant, and after multiple miscarriages and infertility issues, it looks like her dream is about to come true. But a terrible turn of events leads to a nightmare—one that takes away her unborn baby and breaks apart her marriage to Max. In the aftermath, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. When Zoe is hired by Vanessa, a school counselor, their relationship blossoms, to Zoe’s surprise, from business to love. Eventually Zoe and Vanessa want to start a family, using the frozen embryos she and Max still have.

Kimberli, January 30, 2013 (view all comments by Kimberli)
Like all Jodi Piccoult books, this one can be a bit heavy handed but the subject matter is so involving and thought-provoking, you won't care. After battling infertility unsuccessfully and following a devastating loss, Zoe's husband Max decides that he no longer wants to be a father. He's not interested in being Zoe's husband either. To cope with the divorce, Zoe turns to her love of music and a surprising new friendship. Max, a semi-recovered alcoholic, backslides into depression and booze. It takes a near-fatal accident and the support of a charismatic preacher to save Max from himself and lead him to a new, Godly, life. At the same time, Zoe is building her own new life and finding a new and exciting, if forbidden, love with her friend Vanessa. Eventually, Zoe's world and Max's world will collide in a custody battle over three fertilized embryo's. Now married to Vanessa, Zoe knows the fertilized eggs are her last shot at motherhood. Max has come to believe that God condemns Zoe's lifestyle and lets himself become convinced that he must protect his "pre-born" children from exposure to it. Religion, homosexuality, adultery, addiction, accusations of impropriety...the book is action packed to the point it sometimes seems a bit much. Luckily, the characters are warm and believable, the dialogue is also believable and the story moves along at a quick pace that will have the reader turning pages long into the night.
