A richly compelling and deeply moving novel that traces
the converging lives of a young boy who witnesses a brutal
murder, the doctor who tends to him, and an elderly woman
guarding her long buried past.
It seems like just another night shift for Lucy, an
overworked ER physician in Providence, Rhode Island, until
six-year-old Ben is brought in as the sole survivor from a
horrifying crime scene. Heâ€™s traumatized and wordless;
everything he knows has been taken from him in an afternoon.
Itâ€™s not clear what he saw, or what he remembers.
Lucy, whoâ€™s grappling with a personal upheaval of her own,
feels a profound, unexpected connection to the little boy.
She wants to help himâ€¦but will recovering his memory heal
him, or damage him further?
Across town, Clare will soon be turning one hundred years
old. She has long believed that the lifetime of secrets
sheâ€™s been keeping donâ€™t matter to anyone anymore, but a
surprising encounter makes her realize that the time has
come to tell her story.
As Ben, Lucy, and Clare struggle to confront the events that
shattered their lives, something stronger than fate is
working to bring them together.
An expertly stitched story that spans nearly a centuryâ€”from
the Great Depression through the Vietnam War era and into
the presentâ€”The Possible World is a captivating novel
about the complicated ways our pasts shape our identities,
the power of maternal love, the loneliness born out of loss,
and how timeless bonds can help us triumph over grief.
