After struggling with cystic fibrosis all of her life, nineteen-year-old Amber Metz’s health begins a decline that leaves her, literally, breathless and in need of a double lung transplant.
Peppered with narratives from her friends and family, Metz’s novel, Breathtaking, is a testimony of the extraordinary power of God, through even the most stifling circumstances. Though heartbreaking, Metz’s story doesn’t invite pity. And, though her life clearly exemplifies what it means to follow Christ, she doesn’t come across as sermonizing. What we see is an authentic account of a young woman who is adamant about staying true to her faith and standing on the promises of God at a time when she needs them most.
Metz holds nothing back as she allows the reader to look in, hear her cries, feel her pain, experience her peace, smile at her joy, and wait on her miracle as she takes life one breath at a time.
