Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult

Zoe Baxter has spent ten years trying to get pregnant, and just when she's about to get her heart's desire, tragedy destroys her world. In the aftermath of loss and divorce, she throws herself into her career as a music therapist. Working with Vanessa, she finds their relationship moving from business, to friendship, and then - to Zoe's surprise - blossoming into love. When Zoe allows herself to start thinking of children again, she remembers that there are still frozen embryos that she and her husband never used. But Max, having sought peace at the bottom of a bottle, has found redemption in an evangelical church, and Zoe needs his permission to take his unborn child ...

Ah, what a pleasant return to reading after 50 Shades ... I read this book quite fast, it captured me and I really enjoyed it. I won't lie it's a hard book to read in that it covers some tough topics, miscarriage and wanting a baby but not being able to conceive naturally (something, I won't lie, I'm terrified of), aging thru this process and watching it slip ever further from you, religious closed-mindedness and coming out (which I've never had to deal with, but I thought this book wrote about it very nicely). I don't always enjoy Jodi Picoult's books, but I really did enjoy this one.
