This book deals with so many topics:

Music therapy
Infertility and its treatments
Loss of a child
Divorce
Alcoholism
Suicidal teens
Cancer
Same-sex relationships and marriage
Discrimination
Evangelical religious beliefs
Definition of when life starts - a child v. an embryo
Definition of a family
Exploitation by special interests of a family situation
Infidelity

The characters and the writing is compelling. I wanted to know what happened, and the book did elicit emotion in unexpected places. However, I wish there weren't quite so many topics touched upon. Any one topic in and of itself could have made a compelling story. It was a little difficult and overwhelming to find them all in one. Some situations reached a resolution at the end of the book, and some (one in particular but I don't want to put in a spolier) were left hanging.
