Sing You Home

Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist.

Publisher's Summary

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 marks the years she spent trying to get pregnant.

And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman 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.

Jodi Picoult has proven once again that she is a master storyteller, always bringing grace, compassion, and thoughtfulness to life’s most difficult questions. Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. And it’s about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.

    "WONDERFUL BOOK!!!"

    A must read for everyone. I have read many reviews of how Jodi is one sided and portrays religion as the main problem behind this prejudice. It is. Most religions are anyway. The one portrayed in this book is very real and this is how they really feel and behave. It is awful how narrow minded people can be. It is a fact, not overdone by Jodi. This is a very realistic love and the book was beautifully written.

    "Interesting until the end"

    This one will keep you interested until the end. I just thought the plot moved too quickly to be believable. The music included was a different twist, but the story could survive without the music. I love the ending and that no matter which book you read of Picoult's, it is always a surprise how she end it.

    "Love the book. Hate the music"

    I love all of Jodi Picoult's books and I would give this one 5 stars except that I couldn't stand the music. Granted, I was able to fast forward through the songs but there were so many of them it was a hassle.
    If I had known about the music before I bought the audio book, I would have skipped it and purchased a printed book instead.

    "Good story...Fast Forward through the songs"

    The story is very well written and fairly shows both sides of the matter. Some people might be offended by the subject matter and if that is you then don't bother with this book. I am both a Christian and a staunch supporter of Gay Rights. That's right... you can be both. It is something I am very passionate about and for that reason I was a little weary of this book. I didn't want to hear a bunch of rhetoric. I wanted a real investigation that fairly represented concerns of both sides of the table. This book very close to achieving that purpose. I will say that the author is somewhat slanted towards the side of the gay couple but that is to be expected...after all...someone who wasn't slanted towards the gay couple wouldn't be writing this book from both points of views. It is a very compelling story just as all of Picoult's novels are and does carry you back and forth between the very different view points. This book makes a good case for humanity. For those who say that it makes all Christians look bad I say that you are very narrow in your idea of a Christian. The focus of this book is one very specific group of Christians...specifically centering on the westboro baptist folks and churches along that same vein that care more about politics than they do about loving like Jesus would have. Again, if that is the kind of Christian you are then you probably won't like this book.
    With all of that said, I have one very loud complaint about the book. The music was hideous. The songs were silly and the singer was not the best choice. The music was completely grating. At first I would just quickly fastforward through the music but by the end I found that I was actually cringing at the end of a chapter. I wish audible would offer a version that just read the songs (if that has to be included) instead of trying to make them into music. It would be a perfect score without the music.

    "Fair"

    "Jodi does it again!"

    Controversial subjects including sympathetic characters on both sides of the controversy are a Jodi Picoult trademark and this book is no exception. I thought the ending was a little weak, but as usual enjoyed this JP novel.

    "much more than a lesbian love story"

    I hesitated getting this book because of the description. I didn't know if I was ready to listen to a controversial story for "entertainment". But being a Jodi Picoult book fan I got it anyway. This book is so much more than the short description. I couldn't help feeling for the characters no matter what and liked how things got all twisted in unexpected ways. I don't want to give the plot away but you need to know that this also shows the heterosexual side, religious side and how others can influence us and that what is right can be wrong and what is seems wrong can be right. I had a hard time putting this down.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Missed some good bite"

    The book was slow in the first half. How often do people have to say how much they love each other before you start to think who is the author trying to convince - I almost gave up. I continued and the second half of the book really improved. Then the book ended in a snap without letting listeners know what happened to important charaters. Very frustrating.

    "A story to make you think"

    I have read many of the reviews and find myself wondering why so many readers thought that it was anti-christian. What I gained from this story was that when passions run high on both sides of the gay issue then good people sometimes make decisions that they would not ordinarily make. When you feel strongly about an issue your worst often comes to the surface. I don't think this story was anti-religion but brought up the point that religion should not be used to fuel hate. Most Christians understand this and do not go down this road. However, a few vocal pro-hate people can rally people if they are charismatic speakers and they use God to back up their views. We all need to be careful that we as individuals are not sucked in to this hate, on both sides of the issue! I enjoyed the story, but could do without the music.
