Here’s the Bright Side is a wise, moving, and funny book about what people gain from situations of loss. Using examples from her own life and from other people’s lives, Rollin inspires readers with stories that illustrate the value that can come from the hardest times in our lives and how the worst can lead to the best, resulting in happier, more powerful, richer ways of living. Rollin writes both of lessons learned and happiness gained: about men, friends, power, and more. Rollin tells us about fair- and foul-weather friends, the usefulness of fear, the positive outcomes of failure, divorce, and widowhood and her own evolving joy as a cancer survivor. Poignant, timely, and universal, Here’s the Bright Side is a unique and inspirational view of how life is often enriched by loss and how people find surprising light in darkness.

Editorial Reviews

“Upbeat, humorous and reassuring…winningly brought to life thanks to Ward’s brisk, authoritative delivery…an ideal gift for anyone facing hardships.” Publishers Weekly
“[Rollin] eschews Pollyanna-ish advice for personal examples and research findings on people who’ve endured tragedies, weather-related upheavals, and aging issues…Excellent.” Library Journal
