From the Publisher
New York Times bestselling author Pamela Redmond
delivers a beautifully written novel about three generations of
women in New York City and the experiences that shape and connect
them to each other.
The Possibility of You weaves together three
interlocking stories involving three women dealing with issues of
pregnancy and motherhood at key moments in history of the last
century: On the brink of the First World War and the dawn of the
modern age; as the liberalism of the '60s and '70s gave way to
Reagan's 1980s; and during the autumn of Barack Obama's
election. Contemporary heroine Cait, an African-American
journalist raised by white adoptive parents, goes on a search for
her birth mother inspired by her own unplanned
pregnancy. Orphan Billie travels from her hippie upbringing in
San Francisco to discover the upscale New York grandmother she
never knew existed. And Irish nanny Bridget loses the boy she
cares for and loves in the 1916 polio epidemic, only to try and
replace him with a child of her own.
Delving into the complex emotions that lie at the heart of
unplanned pregnancy, motherhood, and the definition of family, this
sweeping inter-generational saga illuminates the struggles of these
very different women-and shows how the search for belonging is a
connection that remains universal.
