Breathtaking: One Woman’s Fight to Live and Find Hope in the Face of Certain Death. A Review of Amber Nicole Metz’s Book, “Breathtaking”

I have in my hands Amber Nicole Metz’s “Breathtaking.” Amber has been battling cystic fibrosis for her entire life. After nineteen years, her lungs were useless and needed to be replaced. The book is a collection of letters and emails documenting her time as she waited for the double lung transplant. One would expect that being so near to death for so long that Amber would have descended into a morbid outlook on life. The back of the book calls her personal testimony “A modern-day twist on C.S. Lewis’ A Grief Observed.” That book really was dark! Even if it was edifying and comforting, it was dark. Amber’s testimony is filled with hope and light. “Breathtaking” is an encouragement to all who struggle against circumstance and points the way to Amber’s source: God himself.
