Zoe Baxter has spent ten years trying to get pregnant, and after multiple miscarriages and infertility issues, it looks as though her dream is about to come true - she is seven months pregnant. But a terrible turn of events leads to a nightmare - one that takes away her baby and breaks apart her marriage to Max. In the aftermath she throws herself into her career as a music therapist, using music to soothe burn victims in hospital, to help Alzheimer's patients connect with the present, to provide solace for hospice patients. When Vanessa, a guidance counsellor, asks Zoe to work with a suicidal teen, their relationship moves from business to friendship and then, to Zoe's surprise, blossoms into love. When Zoe allows herself to start thinking of having a family again, she remembers that there are still frozen embryos that were never used by her and Max. Meanwhile, Max has found peace at the bottom of a bottle, until he is redeemed by an evangelical church whose charismatic pastor has vowed to fight the 'homosexual agenda' that threatens traditional family values. But this mission becomes personal for Max, when Zoe and her partner say they want permission to raise his unborn child. Sing You Home is an honest and moving story of contemporary relationships and the consequences of love and desire colliding with science and the law. From tragedy to self-discovery and joy, Zoe, Vanessa and Max will realise the undeniable truth - that you can't choose who you love.

Reviews

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.
