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.

Sing you home
I can't believe the ending was so vague. For all their struggle,
That the characters didn't have something that made sense and followed the court descison . Who is Samantha and where did
She come from and was she the embryos that were in question.
Who birthed her and where is Reid. It's like Jodi got tired and didn't quite finish her book. In my opinion, the only book she had a good ending was My sister's keeper. I am going to have to read The pact again to see how it ended as well as Mercy.
Usually, Jodi varies on endings. Most of the time she forgets that it's a New York times bestseller rather than a kumbiya book. OverAll, I enjoyed the book, I love anything she writes but I have found writers like ayelet Waldman to be a much more interesting
Author. Next, is my first Maeve Binchy book, minding franky. I hope I enjoy it. This book however, I give a rating of an 8.
Sing You Home
The book, I loved. The music, not so much. I really thought I would get used to the 60's folk music sound, but I didn't.
The author did a really good job showing both sides of the issues in this novel. She also proved that even if you don't love the act, you can love the person.
I love all her books but this was the best yet. Jodi truly captures the very essence of the struggle.
