Synopses & Reviews

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.

Review:

"Powerful...Gripping." Booklist

Review:

"Few books are so engaging, so enraging, so sympathetic as to arrest one's attention and demand to be read in one sitting. Jodi Picoult's Sing You Home is such a novel." About.com

Review:

“An immensely entertaining melodrama with crackerjack dialogue that kept me happily indoors for an entire weekend.” USA Today

Review:

“[Jodi Picoult] has crafted another winner...Picoult cleverly examines the modern world of reproductive science, how best to nurture a child and what, exactly, being a family means.” People

Review:

“Thoroughly satisfying. Sing You Home truly sings.” BookPage

Review:

Sing You Home is the book that we, as gay men and woman, will want to hand to our straight friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members. I’m not saying Picoult is a savior for the gay movement, but she’s created a record of our time.” Edge (Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and Los Angeles)

Synopsis:

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.

Meanwhile, Max has found peace at the bottom of a bottle—until he is redeemed by a charismatic pastor determined to fight the “homosexual agenda” that has threatened traditional family values. This mission becomes personal for Max when Zoe and Vanessa want permission to raise his unborn child.

As The Washington Post said, “Picoult has become a master—almost a clairvoyant—at targeting hot issues and writing highly readable page turners.” Sing You Home is no exception and is sure to have people grappling with difficult questions about what defines a family.

I love it!! Picoult manages to face a controversial issue head-on, laying the facts out there, and making you fall in love with the characters and the story. She makes you believe in love, and all that is good. I cannot wait till I have time to read this book again. :)

Jodi Picoult's "Sing You Home" takes you on an emotional ride, with unexpected twists and turns. Some exciting and witty, others uncomfortable and aggravating. This is a well written and well researched gem of our time. Thank you for bringing honesty and the real matters at heart to the forefront.

As is her strength Jodi Picoult handles a controversial subject delicately and with sensitivity. She does not judge either the Moral Majority or the Rainbow Coalition; rather she narrates their positions using one family's story. A poignant account which ends as always in a very touching manner.

It is important that in our eagerness to debate the main topic we do not miss out on the importance of Music Therapy which Picoult handles. Music does indeed play a phenomenal role in healing and even in productivity; kudos to Picoult for pointing that out. And of course, the soulful CD is a valuable addition to the book.
