From New York Times best-selling author Kaui Hart Hemmings comes the highly anticipated follow-up to The Descendants.
In the idyllic ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado, Sarah St. John is reeling. Three months ago, her 22-year-old son, Cully, died in an avalanche. Though single, Sarah is hardly alone in her grief. Her father, a retiree, tries to distract her with gadgets from the QVC home shopping channel. Sarah’s best friend offers life advice by venting details of her own messy divorce. Even Cully’s father reemerges, stirring more emotions and confusion than Sarah needs. Still, Sarah feels she is facing the stages of grief - the anger, the sadness, the letting go - alone.
Barely ready to face the fact she will never again hear the swoosh of her son’s ski pants, or watch him skateboard past her window, Sarah is surprised when a strange girl arrives on her doorstep. Unexpected and unexplained, she bears a secret from Cully that could change all of their lives forever.
Kaui Hart Hemmings highlights the subtle poignancies of grief and relationships in this stunning look at people faced with impossible choices in the wake of a tragedy. With the unsentimental and refreshingly wry style famous for presenting trouble in paradise in The Descendants, Hemmings in The Possibilities considers the difficult questions of what we risk to keep our loved ones close.

Not of "The Descendants" caliber
- Pamela Harvey
I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with all the characters and I didn't want the story to end.
It's rare to have a narrator who is so honest, authentic, raw and real. Love love loved her.
The interaction between Sarah and Kit was extraordinary--I loved the confusion of emotions that flashed between them but also the true love.
Can't wait for Kaui Hemming's next book -- she is a brilliant writer.
