Publisher's Summary

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.

Musical interludes between chapters made me cringe.

This was a good story, but honestly, the songs played between chapters were just horrible. I sped through them as quickly as possible as they we’re cringeworthy. Too bad, because I’m
Sure the lyrics were lovely. Left me not loving this story as an audiobook. As a result, I would NOT recommend this as an Audiable purchase.

What happened to/with Lucy?

I wish there was follow up on Lucy's situation! What was she dealing with? How was she involved in the accusations against Zoey? Did she end up ok? I didn't like the cadence of the male narrator's voice for Max. I found it annoying.

Completion

I thoroughly enjoyed the story line. My only complaint is that the ending leaves you wanting more. It doesn’t feel completed.

Disappointed

This could have been an amazing story of a relationship that succeeded against all odds. instead it almost reads like the impossible to believe princess fairy tales for kids. Even teenagers know that rebound relationships don't work, mostly when they end up is a marriage of 2 persons who hardly know each other. You could have done better, Jodi Picoult. You are way smarter than this.

Must listen to

Jodi Picoult does it again! This book is GREAT. The narrators bring this story to life so much that I was sad when it ended.

Another winner

Slow to start, and I did not enjoy the songs but once I got into the book I couldn’t stop listening.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Love is love

I cdn’t put this book down; was an all night read two nights In a row. I love the way JP presents both sides of a controversial issue in her novels. This book is worth an immediate re-read. Unlike some critics’ censures of the singing portions, I found the singing courageous and reminiscent of Karaoke performances. I have a professional songwriter-singer granddaughter, Miriam McQueen, who has songs and videos on YouTube. Her brother, John S. McQueen, is her videographer. I could picture her doing these songs for this book. Hoping and praying for real Judeao-Christian love to win out in the end, without judgmentalism, I was so excited to hear the final ending I highly recommend this book for anyone with straight and gay people in their family, educators, parents with children in the public school system, and high school students. Just an outstanding JP novel with JP doing her research homework for which she is so famous. She’s one of the pioneer educator-writers of the 21st century. Thank you for teaching a retired teacher like me, Bachelor Master Doctor Jodi Picoult. I’d be honored to meet you someday. You give civilization such a moving chronicle of current historical issues.

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.

Hard to get through

I don’t blame the author but this story was a hard read for me. The stereotypical Christians make me crazy and I found myself disgusted with the characters in this book because I know so many people like them. Overall the story was good, a little drawn out before getting to the point but it wraps up nicely and I’m actually glad it’s over. Did not enjoy the musical pieces but that is just a personal distaste for that type of music.
