Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult (#14)

odi Picoult is at her best in this issue oriented novel: the issue is what happens to fertilized eggs when a couple divorces, the woman remarries in a same sex marriage, and the man joins a fundamental church. As in Ms. Picoult's usual format, the story is told very convincingly from all viewpoints so that we don't know the result until almost the very end of the book. An interesting twist to this book is the accompanying CD with lovely music: the words to the songs composed by Ms Picoult. The songs tell a story and accompany the chapters of the book. Very enjoyable book!
