Am I readyfor motherhood? That’s the question that reverberates through three generations of New York women in Pamela Redmond’s compelling family saga, The Possibility of You (Gallery Books). There’s Bridget, an Irish immigrant whose husband can’t support their baby; Billie, a ’70s-era hippie who gives her daughter away; and Cait, a 21st-century journalist contemplating an abortion. Woven into their absorbing stories are issues of gender and reproductive rights that are still red hot today.
