    Brilliantly paced, this memoir left me as breathless as if I d read a thriller about a killer circling its victim The writing has a spare and clear rhythm It echoes the writer s constant struggle to escape the riddle that engulfs her very being from childhood to the young wife and mother she has become When Lene Fogelberg is a child in Sweden, doctors persuade her family there is nothing wrong with her even as every breath she takes is a struggle This memoir weaves glimpses of that past into an [...]

    Fogelberg has crafted a literary and beautifully compelling story about a mysterious monster that is destroying her health and yet defies all medical attempts to find a cause Once it is cast as a mental issue, no one seems interested in digging any deeper She knows something is wrong, but no one will believe her As captivating as this part of the story is, however, it is much than a medical mystery It is a heartfelt and touching story about a mother who loves her husband and children and strugg [...]

    Lene Fogelberg s Beautiful Affliction is an incredibly rewarding read At times harrowing, her account of living on the edge of death for most of her life nonetheless resonates with hope and love Her words have a certain gentleness and grace that buoyed me, and made me feel the wonder of life anew.

    I was drawn into this book from the beginning Before I knew the story, Lene Fogelberg s skillful writing promised to bring me along on her journey with honesty and respect And what a story it is It s about intuition, love, weakness and strength Family, faith, heritage And always poetry One of the themes that I connected with is that of trusting one s intuition Intuition for one s own health and well being is often contradicted by those professionals who know better And we learn to trust others u [...]

    This Book.Even long before it existed, I wanted to love it.Several years ago, my mother in law who knows Lene s mother told me about Lene s move from Sweden to Philadelphia, and how it resulted in her life saving open heart surgery.Even back then, Lene s story gave me chills.And then several months back, I heard Lene had written a book about her life journey A fellow writer A fellow writer, who is also a Swede living abroad I had to investigate this girl.One visit to her blog later, and I knew I [...]

    Beautiful Affliction is a stunning debut memoir about a young woman whose fatal congenital heart condition is dismissed by the medical community in Sweden But, it isn t only the topic that makes this memoir a page turner Lene Fogelberg weaves a riveting story of fear of impending death, invalidated for years as she struggles with daily fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath She knows something is wrong and often feels she is going insane while putting up a valiant front for her husband and t [...]

    It is hard to believe that English in not Lene s first language The story is compelling and the prose is poetic I thought it fitting to read the story with the din of cicadas humming through my neighborhood I am glad Lene chose to share her story with the world Maybe in the sharing, she can can help us all silence the whispering monsters in our lives.

    This memoir contains in it one of the greatest love stories I have encountered, which caused me to hug my husband tighter and rock my daughter longer Don t misunderstand, this is not brain candy mushy reading that personally makes me nauseous Fogelberg s memoir is real in every way it broke my heart and mended it at the same time I cried, I laughed, and now, after reading, I want to share this beautiful work with everyone.

    Lene Fogelberg is a wonder Not only has she written a beautifully compelling study of the human heart and spirit in Beautiful Affliction, she has written it in English, her second language Her poetic prose and wispy like descriptions of the world between the worlds as she struggles to stay alive and breathe after her surgery is just fascinating The inner world we get to experience as she lays in bed with a ventilator breathing for her is truly magical and mystical I was brought to tears several [...]

    Definitely my best read book of 2015 This book, a memoir of a woman s undiagnosed heart ailment and how she survives, is so full of beauty and moments that soar And then catch your breath She describes her daughters, and I see my girls She writes of awakening after surgery, and I feel trapped and airless She tells about post partum depression, and I am there in that hopeless place Yet, oddly, it s not bleak It s beautiful All of it.I keep coming back to this book s entry here to see how others a [...]

    At the very heart of the matter resides a riddle with invisible, yet menacing tentacles whose chokehold is slowly extinguishing the life of Lene Fogelberg Every tick of the clock a gamble, BEAUTIFUL AFFLICTION directs the reader s focus to what matters really matters in their own lives A gripping page turner, Fogelberg s suspenseful masterpiece will break your heart with joy.

    Touching but not mushyI was not sure about this story at first I did not want a depressing book Boy, was I wrong The author s writing is descriptive and beautiful She describes her experiences so the reader feels her suffering, but she is not complaining or asking for the reader s sympathy Instead we root for her and cheer her on This was a well written and inspiring book It was the perfect choice for Thanksgiving weekend We should all be as grateful for life.

    This is one of the most moving memoirs I have read also one of the most remarkable, both in topic and writing style Lene Fogelberg is a poetic, honest writer with a strong voice to match her strong spirit It is frightening how neglected her medical care was in Sweden almost unbelievable that she could go all the way into adulthood and through pregnancy without a proper assessment of her heart murmur Clearly if circumstances hadn t sent her husband and their family to the US, Lene would not have [...]

    I wasn t quite sure what to expect when I started this book because I chose not to read the back cover of the book or any other written information on the book I wasn t even sure which class it fell under for my FRC2015 challenge The author, Lene Fogelberg has crafted a literary and beautifully compelling story about a mysterious monster that is destroying her health and yet defies all medical attempts to find a cause I had no idea about the health care in Sweden and the unavailability of doctor [...]

    What an incredible book The poetically described narrative of a Swedish woman with a grossly abnormal heart, who never has her affliction diagnosed in Sweden, but then moves to the United States and learns from a cardiologist at age 31 that she has about 10 percent use of what Woody Allen might describe as her third favorite organ This deficiency has caused her to be exhausted her entire life and dismissed by teachers and even her parents as an unusually lazy child, whereas actually she was a ch [...]

    I joined SheWrites and immediately brushed shoulders with Lene Fogelberg, author of the rich emotion symphony called Beautiful Affliction I understand the old tradition, for women, of knowing you are ill, but if the docs can t find a diagnosis, they tell you it s hypochondria It is frustrating to read about Lene s struggle understanding she is not well, but unable to get anyone to investigate what turns out to be a life threatening heart problem.Lene s prose is like silk, swirling back and forth [...]

    I had to stop reading this at 75% completed since I related to it on a very personal level I related to the author so closely with her experience of long term illness that I started feeling anxiety When she entered the hospital for open heart surgery I had to stop I rated this a 5 since her writing was very realistic.

    Original review at 125pagesI received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.4.75 Stars Oh you guys This, this is the memoir I have been wanting to read Beautiful Affliction is so powerful and fluid, this could easily stand as a fiction novel, but the fact that it is a true tale makes it just so much When a three line email transcribed in a book makes you tear up, you know you have found somethi [...]

    We know, of course, that Lene Fogelberg pulls through That s not the point The point is that in her memoir Beautiful Affliction, we journey with her through the nearly constant, terrifying, painful symptoms that follow her from her native Sweden to the United States, where she ultimately discovers she is in the last stages of a fatal congenital heart disease With exceptional detail, Fogelberg brings readers into her head as she struggles to breathe, to raise her two daughters without letting the [...]

    There are so many little bits of beauty and wisdom that are expressed through this book Wisdom that really can only come to those who have struggled I wanted to mark so many thoughts that struck me but I ran out of stickies.

    Stephanie Scarbrough
    This book came at just the right time for me Enduring a beautiful affliction all mine own, I felt like Lene and I traveled together I am so happy that she will be healthy, even though I will not Wonderful story, much like a lovely song of life.

    Intimate Provoking Inspiring Lene s unique writing style was the ideal way to convey such a moving life story The manner in which she recounted her fears, her afflictions, her loves and her miracles has led me to lasting self reflection.

    Ashley Warner
    Beautiful Affliction offers a compelling account of Fogelberg s daily physical challenges with debilitating heart disease and the haunting isolation suffered as her deadly symptoms are repeatedly dismissed At last, a dramatic series of events will have even the most doubtful believing in miracles, and we will all be reminded of the sustaining power of love.

    This is a beautiful book It is well written and heartbreaking and at the same time it is a brilliant reminder about how precious life is Everyone should read this book.

    Carol Wakefield
    Very moving tale Lene has spent her entire short lifetime trying to accept and overcome her doctors label of hypochondriac Difficulty breathing, extreme shortness of breath, overwhelming tiredness At age 31 with her husband and 2 small children she comes to the U S for her husbands work and in order to get health insurance needs to receive a full physical exam Something she has not experienced in her native Sweden The state of her very weak heart immediately comes to light Much of the book detai [...]

    Linda Caddick
    Lene s amazing ability to closely describe her experience has you living inside her skin, feeling the erratic beating of her heart, and breathing her laboured breaths as you share her harrowing journey through life with an undiagnosed health problem Repeatedly told she was normal, how could she know that her terrible exhaustion was not laziness or an inability to cope with things others found easy Yet through it all, she clings to beauty and love with a sensitivity born out of pain, and reminds [...]
