    Description

    From the award-winning, number one New York Times best-selling 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. 

    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.

    Interesting topic

    As a whole, I found the topics explored by the book interesting, and raised a lot of good questions. Also, the narrators made the story come alive and were pleasant to listen to. It was refreshing to be served an LGBT novel that wasn't all about sex or stereotypes, but I found it a little too flat, and the immense focus on the Bible, God and religion, even though I get why she's doing it, was a little off-putting for me personally. Still, it was an interesting story with a theme that's worthy of attention.

    The singing ruins it!

    If you can get past the terrible singing, which starts as soon as the book begins, then the book is okay. EVERY TIME the singing began I had to fast forward 3 minutes to avoid the terrible sound.

    The Tears

    This book had me bawling, multiple times. Suffering with infertility and loss, bringing such real emotions to the surface. The story is tragic, and beautiful. Worth the read!!

    What about Lucy

    I've liked other books from this author. wasn't crazy about this one though. I though it started strong but dragged along and had a bit of an abrupt and weak ending. And Lucy, the character we encounter over and over, remains a mystery.

    Engaging and entertaining

    For the most part, I enjoy reading this author's work. She has a depth in her novels in relation to social norms and policies that touches on controversial topics. This author is direct, firm and diplomatic within the creation of her characters and creates a solid plot to keep the readers interest.

    I enjoyed the complexity of the relationships for the most part. At times, the drama components of her characters life situations kicks up a bit more than I feel is necessary but it is entertaining.

    Narration method is adequate. I usually enjoy one narrator and this one has multiple narrators. It was not problematic, just added the drama piece.

    good book, terrible singing

    Jodi is one of my favorite authors and I lived the story line but getting through the songs was just painful. she's definitely not a songwriter. but, I still would recommend this book. just fast forward the songs.

    amazing

    I was hooked in the very beginning. I thought for sure I knew what would happen in the end, but several twists have me back and forth, changing my mind.

    I love Jodi's books

    This one I wasn't sure if I was going to like because of the format but once I started listening, I was hooked. What a beautiful love story in so many ways.

    Unique!

    I am so glad I listened to this book! The songs were beautiful! The story was true Jodi Picoult showing both sides and doing her research. The story was so good, I felt like I knew the characters!

    lesbians against evangelical hypocrites....

    and love wins. A breathtaking story about a woman haveing her comeing-out at the age of 41 with lots of detailed thinking-mechanisms of "bible-true" evangelicals.
