From the bestselling author ofMotherless Daughters, here is the real-life story of one womans search for a cure to her familys escalating troubles, and the leap of faith that took her on a journey to an exotic place and a new state of mind. In the autumn of 2000, Hope Edelman was a woman adrift, questioning her marriage, her profession, and her place in the larger world. Feeling vulnerable and isolated, she was primed for change. Into her stagnant routine dropped Dodo, her three-year-old daughter Mayas curiously disruptive imaginary friend. Confused and worried about how to handle Dodos apparent hold on their daughter, Edelman and her husband made the unlikely choice to take her to Maya healers in Belize, hoping that a shaman might help them banish Dodoand, as they came to understand, all he representedfrom their lives. An account of how an otherwise mainstream mother and wife finds herself making an extremely unorthodox choice,The Possibility of Everythingchronicles the magical week in Central America that transformed Edelman from a person whose past had led her to believe only in the visible and the proven to someone open to the idea of larger, unseen forces. This deeply affecting, beautifully written memoir of a familys emotional journey explores what Edelman and her husband went looking for in the jungle and what they ultimately discoveredas parents, as spouses, and as ordinary peopleabout the things that possess and destroy, or that can heal us all. From the Hardcover edition.
