Sing You Home

Author:

Jodi Picoult

Synopsis:

Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter's life. There's the melody that reminds her of the summer spent in pursuit of the perfect tan. A dance beat that makes her think of fake ID's and nightclubs. A dirge that marked the years she spent trying to get pregnant. In the aftermath of a series of personal tragedies, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. When an unexpected friendship blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she trusts most - don't want that to happen.

These are dark days for England; the Tudor succession hangs precariously in the balance, along with the lives of its people.
