Wie sehr das Leben leuchtet, auch in seinen dunkelsten Momenten. "Sterben ist nicht das Ende der Welt", hat ihre Mutter einmal gesagt. Doch erst jetzt beginnt Nina Riggs den Satz zu verstehen: Mit 38 Jahren hat sie unheilbar Krebs, die Ärzte geben ihr noch 18 bis 36 Monate. Wie lebt man ein Leben, dessen Ende feststeht, das aber dennoch gelebt werden will? Wie macht man Pläne für den Urlaub, wie spricht man mit den Kindern, und wie ist man weiterhin eine liebende Partnerin? Nina Riggs hat ein Buch geschrieben über ihre letzten Monate, das keine Krankengeschichte ist und keine heldenhafte Kampfansage an den Krebs. Es ist ein Buch über den Zweifel und die Angst, aber auch über die unendliche Schönheit des Augenblicks und den beharrlichen Blick nach vorn. Es ist ein Buch darüber, wie sehr das Leben leuchtet, auch in seinen dunkelsten Momenten.

Susannah Cahalan ist jung, attraktiv, frisch verliebt, eine aufstrebende Journalistin – und gerät über Nacht in den schlimmsten Albtraum ihres Lebens. Innerhalb kürzester Zeit erkrankt sie schwer, leidet an Wahnvorstellungen und wird binnen weniger Wochen zum Schwerstpflegefall in der Psychiatrie. Vollgepumpt mit Medikamenten wird sie ans Bett gefesselt und vegetiert vor sich hin – dem Tod näher als dem Leben. Doch ihre Familie gibt nicht auf bis endlich der renommierte Neurologe Souhel Najjar hinzugezogen wird. Er findet heraus, dass Susannah an einer erst vor kurzem entdeckten Autoimmunerkrankung leidet, in deren Verlauf der Körper das eigene Gehirn angreift und Symptome wie Schizophrenie, Autismus und Wahnvorstellungen erzeugt. Einmal richtig diagnostiziert, sorgen die geeigneten Medikamente rasch und dauerhaft für Genesung und Susannah gewinnt ihr Leben zurück. Ihre Schilderung des Leidensweges ist eine bewegende und aufregende Geschichte über Familie, Liebe, Hoffnung und darüber, wie sich ein perfektes Leben innerhalb kürzester Zeit in eine Katastrophe verwandeln kann. Ein fesselndes Buch, das man nicht aus der Hand legen kann, bis die letzte Seite verschlungen ist.

Angst, Wut, Trauer – negative Gefühle wie diese, zurückgehend bis in die Kindheit und längst vergessen geglaubt, beeinflussen täglich unser Erleben und hindern uns daran, absolut im Jetzt zu sein. Jeder Versuch, zu innerem Frieden und Gelassenheit zu gelangen, ist zum Scheitern verurteilt, solange diese Gefühle unterdrückt und ausgeblendet werden. Mit Hilfe Michael Browns 10-wöchiger Reise lernt der Leser, diese Hindernisse zu erkennen und anzunehmen, um schließlich im intensiven Erleben der Gegenwart anzukommen.
