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.

    "I really don't want to write this but......."

    Let me just say that I have really loved Jodi Picoult in the past and was really excited to see this on Audible. I have always felt Jodi went to great lengths to develop her characters and their stories. Unfortunately this book just went off the cliff. And the songs at the beginning of the chapters..... really, Jodi? I can sum this book up for you. Homosexual = Compassionate, loyal, loving, and honest. Christian = Hate-filled, oppressive, manipulative, liar. That's really what you need to know. The whole time I listened to this book I kept waiting for her to diverge from these blatant stereotypes, but she never did and then the whole thing got wrapped in 30 seconds in a nice, rosy little package. VERY disappointing, especially given her unique talent to give depth to people who aren't easy to understand (or sympathize with) in the first place.

    "the music"

    The story and reading of the story by the three readers was fabulous. However, I did NOT like the music. I did not like her voice, the music, the words or the volume. I was excited to hear the music because Jodi Picoult herself asked us to hear the music and to put the context into the stoory, but I had to fast forward through the songs ultimately.

    "Good Story but annoying songs"

    I enjoyed the story and found the characters to be believable and sympathetic but the songs drove me up the wall. Goofy lyrics and nails-on-chalk-board singing.

    "Sing You Home"

    The songs were dreadful. The plot had holes a mile wide. I'm still a Picoult fan, but don't waste a credit on this one.

    "Don't sing me home.....PLEASE!"

    I liked the book. It was interesting and the characters were realistic and well developed. I predicted the ending but that didn't take away from its enjoyment. I cried a few tears. That's a good thing. I was moved. Except for the music! Horrible. If you can, skip over those singing tracks. Yuck.

    "Mixed media is not always good"

    This was not as good as some of her previous books, The plot went on and on and the songs were a distraction. Interesting issues and topical to our time but predictable characters.

    "extremely disappointing"

    i love picoult's books but perhaps her prolific writing is affecting the quality. this really took the cake. the story was so mediocre; i realize the issue is important and is good fodder for a story, and i do believe those characters exist, but they were so stereotypical!!! every one a cliche! for shame. i cannot believe she would use such generalizations to form her characters. on top of all of that, the singing was just awful. i finally had to skip through all the songs. really? what was that all about? that was a terrible idea and at the very least, could you have found a less amateur singer.

    "I really tried to like it, but..."

    This was not one of my favorites of Judy Picoult's. I am usually a fan, but this one lacked the twists and surprise endings. However, the WORST things were the musical interludes. I didn't have a problem with the songs or even the concept, but the female vocalist was absolutely atrocious.

    "Misled!"

    The promotion for this book is very misleading. If I would have known that this is a "Christian" themed novel, I never would have purchased it. I was looking forward to listening to a good read, instead, I am going to get rid of this download. I would love to get my credit returned.

    "Great premise, poor execution"

    The idea of a custody battle for embryos is intriguing; but Picoult's use of the lesbian vs conservative Christian story line is tiresome.
