The Possibility of Everything is Hope Edelman's story of healing her broken family in the jungles of Belize. The problems manifest themselves as Dodo, a violent, imaginary friend her 3 year old daughter conjures up. Along the path of ridding the family of Dodo's disruptive and troubling presence many other troubles surface and are healed. Hope talks a lot of her deep sadness over losing her mother at a young age and of the disconnectedness in having a husband who loves his family, but remains distant. In Hollywood these issues all seem compounded, but in Belize they are slowly remedied sometimes by mystical shamans, sometimes by the openness and freedom they find there. Hope's writing is beautiful - lyrical and flowing. She really has an amazing way of putting words together that makes her book gorgeous to listen to. She reads the audio version herself. At first I had a hard time getting into her reading style, but part way through she falls into a smooth rhythm that I really enjoyed. Overall I I found this to be very worth listening to. The story itself is an interesting glimpse into to very different ways of life and into what lengths a mother will go to to help her child.

I found this book to be both moving and greatly affecting. In this beautifully written memoir, the reader finds a woman who clearly loves her family very much. It takes great honesty and courage to be as vulnerable as Hope Edelman allowed herself to be in writing this book. The author's desire to help her child and heal her family should resonate with anyone who has ever loved deeply. This honestly written work takes the reader on a thoughtful and educational journey--a journey that ends with the author being more open to things unseen and having a very grateful heart. I recommend this book highly.
