With candor and gentleness, speaker and writer Margaret Feinberg (Wonderstruck) chronicles her choice to fight her breast cancer with an unlikely weapon: joy. She argues that joy is neither simple nor saccharine, but instead deeply rooted in the knowledge that humans are the very sons and daughters of God. Drawing on stories from the Bible, as well as her personal reflections during her treatment, she finds joy in giving and forgiving, in ordinary celebration, and even in mourning. Readers expecting a self-help book about attaining joy in any sort of crisis may be thrown off by how much Feinberg sticks to her own personal story. Yet Feinberg ultimately provides a perspective on joy amid the bleak stretches of life that is appealing because of her vulnerability and warm in its wit.
