Zoe Baxter has spent ten years trying to get pregnant, and just when she's about to get her heart's desire, tragedy destroys her world. In the aftermath of loss and divorce, she throws herself into her career as a music therapist. Working with Vanessa, she finds their relationship moving from business, to friendship, and then - to Zoe's surprise - blossoming into love. When Zoe allows herself to start thinking of children again, she remembers that there are still frozen embryos that she and her husband never used. But Max, having sought peace at the bottom of a bottle, has found redemption in an evangelical church, and Zoe needs his permission to take his unborn child ...SING YOU HOME is accompanied by a soundtrack of original songs created for the novel by Jodi Picoult and Ellen Wilber.

Praise for Jodi Picoult -- : 'Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it. -- Daily Mail 'Superb, many-stranded, and grimly topical' -- The Times 'Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution ... A challenging and clever read' -- Sunday Express 20080413 'Picoult's impressive ability to get inside her characters' heads is astounding. HOUSE RULES is utterly gripping' -- Stylist 20080413
For several years, Zoe Baxter and husband Max have been trying to conceive a child through IVF (in-vitro fertilization). When finally it looks like their dream is about to come true, tragedy strikes again, and Zoe loses the baby. Zoe, devastated but undaunted, wants to try again. Max can't handle it and files for divorce. Zoe's friendship with colleague Vanessa grows into a loving relationship, which leads to their same-sex marriage. Zoe yet longs for a child and realizes that she and Max still have frozen embryos at the fertility clinic. Perhaps she and Vanessa can have her biological child. What ensues is a roller-coaster ride among the religious right, the GLBT contingent, and the hearts and minds of the families involved. The narration by Therese Plummer, Brian Hutchison, Michele O. Medlin, and Mia Barron makes this a captivating story. Recommended for all public libraries.
