Description

Masterfully dramatizing society's most provocative issues, Jodi Picoult has become a nearly permanent fixture on the New York Times best-seller list. Sing You Home, her 18th riveting book, is the tale of Zoe Baxter, who is finally pregnant after a 10-year struggle with fertility problems. When she loses the baby, she and her husband Max soon divorce. In time, she falls in love with another woman, and they decide to try for a child using Zoe and Max's frozen embryos. But Max's new pastor is vehemently opposed to the "homosexual agenda."

Professional reviews

"Music is an apt accompaniment to a story about a music therapist who finds herself falling in love with a woman after her husband leaves her. The songs, written by Picoult and Ellen Wilber, who performs them, are placed at relevant points in the heartbreaking story. Therese Plummer performs the women's roles with pure expressions of joy, anger, and grief. Picoult also has a talent for intuiting male internal dialogue, which is performed superbly by Brian Hutchinson, as husband Max. Max's point of view smoothly shifts the story's perspective with ironic guy talk that hints at both his manly feelings and profound vulnerabilities. Picoult conveys her characters' transformation with her signature grace and empathy, while shining a harsh spotlight on intolerance. A bittersweet and riveting listening experience. A.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
