The Possibility of Everything is a gorgeously written memoir about one woman's search for a cure to her family's escalating troubles and the leap of faith that took her on a journey to an exotic place and a new state of mind.

Synopsis:

When her daughter develops an imaginary playmate, Dodo, and begins to exhibit violent and increasingly bizarre behavior, the author struggles to find a solution. After exhausting the usual avenue of help, she and her family make the decision to travel to Belize to meet with a shaman.

Denise Morland, October 21, 2009 (view all comments by Denise Morland)
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.
