The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs

Nina Riggs lived the way she wrote; with humor, wit and a strong sense of purpose. Her book is filled with emotional insight and a brilliant message. 

Much like Paul Kalanithi’s When Breath Becomes Air, this book isn’t only about cancer and dying, but about living and living well. She details her struggles with clarity and an unflinching honesty. 

By picking up this book, you’re like a boxer entering the ring. You know you’re going to take a few punches, and they’re going to hurt. You’ll be bruised and battered when the bell finally rings, but it’ll be worth it. The lessons you learn will make you stronger and give you more energy. You’ll also feel a profound sense of gratitude. 

At least that’s how I felt when I finished this uplifting and glorious book. I felt like someone had gut-punched me. It was hard to breath and there were tears in my eyes. But I also felt invigorated, and determined to get the most out of every single day I have left. That’s her gift to every person who reads this book.
