You can't choose who you love ... Number One bestselling author Jodi Picoult's new novel asks what it takes to make a family in today's world.
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.
'Never one to shy away from moral and ethical dilemmas, or from presenting every side of the debate, Picoult gives her readers all the virtuosic plotting, cliffhangers and twists they've come to expect'
'Picoult tackles this sensitive subject with her usual flawless research and convincing characters ... as is Picoult's signature style, the reader is left just as torn as the characters over the best solution. Thought-provoking and gripping.'
'You can always rely on Jodi Picoult to spin a riveting read around an issue of our times.'
'Picoult goes to the heart of a thoroughly modern problem ... A searching, compassionate look at a very vexed question.'
Praise for Jodi Picoult:
'Superb, many-stranded, and grimly topical'
'Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution ... A challenging and clever read'
