The Possibility of Everything is the story of the change that found her. A chronicle of her extraordinary leap of faith, it begins when her three-year-old daughter, Maya, starts exhibiting unusual and disruptive behavior. Hope Edelman's memoir is touching, insightful and, yes, even healing. Like Hope, I also lost my mother when I was a teenager, so many of the emotions and feelings she describes I could totally identify with. Perhaps that's why this memoir impacted me so strongly, but I think anyone reading this book will be inspired and touched by it. At one point in the book Edelman points out that a friend would later say (after proofing the manuscript for her) that they are always traveling somewhere - on a journey

Feeling vulnerable and isolated, she was primed for change. The Possibility of Everything is the story of the change that found her. A chronicle of her extraordinary leap of faith, it begins when her three-year-old daughter, Maya, starts exhibiting unusual and disruptive behavior. Confused and worried, Edelman and her husband make an unorthodox decision: They take Maya to Belize, suspending disbelief and chasing the promise of an alternative cure.

Some of the negative reviews on this book surprised me. Why would anyone want to read a book about a character exactly like themselves, who does precisely what they would do in a given situation? Hope Edelman makes it clear that she hadn't had enough mothering, due to her mother's early death. She tells us she is anxious and unsure and describes her journey. Her honesty is what makes this a good book. If she were exactly like all the (perfect) reviewers who were cool and calm about mothering and had taken complete charge of Maya and Dodo without blinking an eye, it would have been a dull and infuriating read.
As for the readers hoping for an exorcism, that book has already been written.

A mother’s anxiety about her child reflecting on her motherless life .

Edelman has written an engaging and informative narrative of her family's experience with what can only be described as a "possessed" child. As an upper middle class mom living in one of the most progressive communities in the United States it took her a long time to recognize that her family needed help from other than the conventional sources.
The help came in the form of native healers in Belize. The trip was a journey of discovery and healing for an entire family, and an opening of spiritual horizons beyond what the author expected. The beginning is a bit slow, but every word fits and every word is necessary. It is well worth reading this book to the finish. Neither Edelman nor her family will be the same after this experience. It is a tribute to her story and her writing that you probably won't be either.

An interesting story of a child with an imagenery friend. The parents take a vacation to Belize, was it a vacation or was it to help their 3yr. old with her behavoral problems. Was she Autistic or had an evil spirit attached to her. An enjoyable book.

This book will help you to bridge the span between what we think is 'real' and what is actually possible. We all have our concept of reality, and Hope gives us a story that is true which teaches us the importance of being able to expand that reality into a bigger concept of what is Spirit and what is Healing.

I have given this book to people to read who are part of the dominant culture, and who do not understand what traditional spiritual healing is. After reading the book, they have a better understanding of how God's love comes onto the planet in many ways, and it is beautiful.

I have suggested this book to people who have children who are displaying the classic signs of spiritual sickness, and who could benefit from understanding that medication and psychotherapy may not be able to address what working with faith, prayer, and spirit can.

I have found that this book bridges our western culture with a more universal concept of what is healing and what is spirit, which is a concept that most non-westernized cultures have known to be true for centuries.

Worth every penny and moment reading to help expand your current reality into the possibilities of miracles. And I can see why people either love or hate this book...as it really does put a card on the table to make people have to have a response to this concept of spirit and healing! The author was brave to do this and deserves kudos.

Ms. Edelman is like an impressionist painter working from a photograph. With small, distinct, exploded moments she paints a vast canvas around a small, but significant event.

The story is simple: over the course of a week, she goes on vacation with her family to Belize and her young daughter--afflicted with both croupe and an imaginary friend--finds unexpected healing. This small act, like many small acts that escape us every day, brings into question all that came before in her life.

Edelman, with her delicate narrative brushstrokes, captures the space in between the minutes of each day to reveal both herself and us in sly and humorous ways. It's a delightful read, both quick and profound, blessedly free of self-absorbtion and sentimentality. A joy between two covers.

I will not recount the story line here because others have done it already. So, why do I not agree with most of the other reviewers? I could not put this book down and didn't want it to end. That's how I measure a book's power, when I do not want it to end. What's more, I still think about the story days later and have recommended it to my husband and daughter.

First off, the author is a great writer. Having mothered a child who was always rambunctious, I loved the way she described interaction with her three-year-old. I thought she did a marvelous job of weaving the plot with the travelog about the journey to Belize and Mayan ruins. She sure made me what to go visit! And, then there's the main theme: the author convinced me, in this memoir, of how she had changed during the trip and became more open to possibilities a traditional upbringing does not allow and cannot account for. Perhaps the reader has to already believe in healers to fully appreciate this book? I don't know. But, even if you have doubts about alternative medicine, read this book to get a glimpse of another world, and for the writing. It is excellent.
