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.

    "Engaging ideas Delivery just under for this reader"

    I am always happy to keep reading with Picoult stories & no exception here. The alternating first person narration of the three main characters worked very well to convey their different perspectives on these sensitive issues.

    My reservations stem from the songs & the occasional saccharine turn of phrase. Even allowing for my bias against folk music of this nature, I feel that the songs were just too sweet & detracted from my experience. I note the author's view that the songs would help readers' understanding of the characters but I would have preferred to be left with my impressions from their actions & dialogue. This criticism does not extend to the music therapy songs which were contextually appropriate.

    I also found the ending a bit tidy to represent the outcome of most human affairs but in conclusion, still a worthwhile listen.

    "Authors should author and let musicians make music"

    The story is a 5 as usual with Jodi, but the songs are a distraction. Whoever wrote the music put emphasis on prepositions and took liberties no songwriter can get away with. Just keep your fast forward button handy amd you will enjoy this one.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    I listened to this entire book in a weekend. It ranks up there with My Sister's Keeper, which is still one of my favorite books. The narrators did a fantastic job. The music was a nice touch as well, although a few of the songs were kind of hokie.

    "Sing You Home"

    Another thoughtful, well written book dealing with present day problems. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, except for the added music at the start each section...FF these ASAP....had the lyrics been spoken instead of sung it certainly would have been more bearable. In addition, the singer was horrible.
    This should be re-recorded WITHOUT the terribly distraction music!!!

    "Great Listen - Jodi does it again"

    Really great listen. Offers a lot of insight into two very divergent views. I was put off by the songs introducing the sections of the book at first but I came to really appreciate them. Loved it and may have to listen again. Today.

    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.

    "Favorite Jodi Picoult book"

    I have read or listened to most of Jodi Picoult's books and this is one of my favorites. Jodi often writes about a controversial topic and in this book she tackles more than one topic that could make some people squirm. I want to write so much about this book but I am so afraid I will give something away. I will say it is an amazing book. I couldn't turn it off. I loved how she used music and song - a real plus for an audible listener. Also, the narrators did an excellent job.

    "Excellent audio book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved the way music was part of this production. I have read a lot of Jodi Picoult and this was one of the best.


    Who was the most memorable character of Sing You Home and why?

    I was surprised at how well-developed the husband in this book was. Many times Picoult's male characters are not well developed and very similar to those in other books. This was a big change for the better.

    "Great Listen"

    This book is very well done - enough time spent on each part of the story and character development to hook the reader. I really enjoyed it from beginning to end. Deals with many different issues on a relatively deep level.
