Every life has a soundtrack. All you have to do is listen.

Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxterís life. Thereís 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 peopleóeven those she loves and trusts mostódonít want that to happen.

Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. Itís 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 itís about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.
