THE POSSIBILITY OF EVERYTHING by Hope Edelman (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
In the autumn of 2000, Hope Edelman was a woman adrift, questioning her marriage, her profession, and her place in the larger world. Into her stagnant routine dropped Dodo, her three-year-old daughter Maya's curiously disruptive imaginary friend. Worried about how to handle Dodo's apparent hold on their daughter, she and her husband made the unlikely choice to take Maya to healers in Belize, hoping that a shaman might help them banish Dodo, and all he represented, from their lives.
The Possibility of Everything chronicles the family’s journey to an exotic place and a new state of mind. That magical week in Central America would transform Edelman from a person whose past had led her to believe only in the visible and the “proven” to one capable of faith in unseen forces and the mystery of healing.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Hope Edelman. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

RATING: Suitable for adults interested in self-help, and spirituality.
“[A] charming memoir full of self-deprecating honesty that defies easy categorization….gripping and vividly detailed….equal parts a meditation on the trials of motherhood and marriage, a travelogue, and an exploration of faith, which [Edelman] braids together into a highly readable, insight-laden narrative.” (Publishers Weekly)
