Summary
Two sisters: one trades self-respect for a wealthy husband while the other finds, in the pages of a book, a kindred spirit who changes her life. The janitor at the local school has his faith tested in an encounter with an isolated man he has come to help; a grown daughter longs for mother-love even as she comes to accept her mother's happiness in a foreign country; and the adult Lucy Barton returns to visit her siblings after seventeen years of absence. The stories in Anything is Possible reverberate with the deep bonds of family and the hope that comes with reconciliation
