Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult

Started: 23rd Jan
Finished:25th Jan

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you can't go wrong with Jodi Picoult! (Unless it's Songs of the Humpback Whale, I can't get into that one at all).

Married couple, trying unsuccessfully to have kids, several failed rounds of IVF later the husband just can't take it any more and they end up getting divorced. He becomes a born-again Christian, she realises she's a lesbian and gets married. Her wife suggests that she tries to get pregnant with the frozen embryos that are still in storage, ex-husband refuses on religious grounds. They go to court to battle it out to see who is entitled to the embryos.

As always, a well-written, emotional, thought-provoking novel from Jodi Picoult, although I thought the ending was a bit convenient. Probably no other way to end it though.
