Zoe Baxter, musicoterapeuta sposata da dieci anni con Max, vorrebbe tanto un figlio, ma non riesce a portare a termine la gravidanza. Dopo l'ennesimo aborto il suo matrimonio non regge di fronte a questo grande dolore e naufraga. Zoe si rifugia nel suo lavoro e insieme alla collega Vanessa cerca di aiutare un’adolescente che ha tentato il suicidio. Tra le due nasce un’amicizia profonda che presto si trasforma in amore. Al punto che Zoe spera di avere con Vanessa una nuova famiglia e quel figlio tanto desiderato, grazie agli embrioni conservati da lei e Max in una banca del seme. Ma Max si oppone con tutte le sue forze all’idea che Zoe possa avere un figlio, che lui rivendica anche come suo, insieme a un’altra donna. Il caso finisce in tribunale, dove si scontreranno non solo Zoe e Max, ma anche due concezioni diverse e opposte della famiglia, e dove i sentimenti più profondi e radicati di ciascuno verranno alla luce, fino all’inatteso e sorprendente finale.

Searching for an apologetic for a homosexual lifestyle? This is the book for you! This review is from: Sing You Home: A Novel (Paperback) I've read all of Jodi's books previously and was so excited to see this one on the shelf at WalMart. Unfortunately,(no spoilers in my review), this novel paints a Leggi tutto
Sing You Home is my new favorite novel by Jodi Picoult, and as of now (mid-March, 2011) my favorite book of this year. There are so many things I wish I could say coherently about this book. I was at a loss of words when I finished it three hours ago, and I still am speechless. But I want to write th Leggi tutto
Posted at Shelf Inflicted This is the first novel I’ve read by Jodi Picoult. I admire her courage and honesty for tackling such issues as infertility, gay rights, parenthood, and religious beliefs. I read somewhere that Jodi’s own teenage son came out to her while she was writing this book. He’s ver Leggi tutto
I have come to the conclusion, that, IMO, Ms. Picoult is more than likely the most overhyped female author in the United States today. Now, that I have absolutely suffered through this triffling piece of trash of a book, I can honestly say that. Ms. Picoult's books are one reason why I try to stay a Leggi tutto
Ms Picoult is simply brilliant. I used to have her on my auto-buy list and have to admit that her last few books, while good, have seemed somewhat formulaic. I was hovering on whether or not to buy this book when my friend suggested it for this month's book-club read. I'm so glad she gave me that pu Leggi tutto
If you ever read a Jodi Picoult novel, you know the drill. Multiple perspectives, courtroom tension, controversial topic, a little twist, insightful little quotes here and there. Lately, though, I haven't really liked her novels, the more of them I read, the less I like them. However, this one wasn' Leggi tutto
I decided that I would not finish this book. For now I am taking a vacation from Jodi. I loved Nineteen Minutes and My Sisters Keeper. However, lately the books seem to be cookie cutter. I feel a sense of deja vu when I read one and it is not a good thing. I was interested in the infertility issues
This story is slightly corny at times, but Jodi Picoult gets bonus points for guts. She's bound to get complaints from both sides of the arguments presented in the book. There will be gay people who say she got things all wrong or trivialized them, and the hate-mongering, gay-bashing religious zealo Leggi tutto
I think I'm over the whole "important current social issue leads to big dramatic court case" format of Picoult's books.
I hated this book, and I usually really enjoy Jodi Picoult. Few books have made me as angry as this one has. I am very socially liberal, but I felt like I was being force-fed social propaganda. I mean, seriously. "Because our [gay] marriage isn't federally recognized, we have to jump through all the Leggi tutto
