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 was a little disappointed in this book. I mean, I always find Jodi Picoult's books somewhat dissatisfying, mostly because they're not so big with the answers. This one I found disappointing because there were too many answers. There were good guys and bad guys, a right side and a wrong one. It...
This is a good book in true Jodi Picoult style. It's good and definitely politically charged, like so many of her books. I'm sure this is a book that some will despise, just because of its subject matter. I must say though, it's a sad state of affairs when this is the sort of issue that draws fir...
