    Great Memoir!

    Beautiful Affliction is the true story of Lene Fogelberg and her battle with her heart. Being born and raised in Sweden, Lene is told all her life that whatever she is feeling is not real and she is making it up but when her husband, Anders gets transferred to Philadelphia, she discovers how wrong they were. With her heart valve as small as it was, Lene should have never had her 2 girls or flew overseas and with this new found information, it becomes a race to get her heart fixed before something bad happens. When the big day comes to get her heart fixed, Lene wanted to go home but is glad in the end that she got it fixed even with all the problems she had to go through in order to survive. I loved how this book went back and forth in the chapters from present day to in the past when she meets Anders and when she starts noticing something wrong. I just couldn't get over how bad Sweden was in cases like this when who knows how many people could have been saved if they received the proper care like they should have. Lene's journey is one for the books, she truly is a survivor! Thank You to Lene Fogelberg for telling your story so the world can know. I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

    Beautiful

    This is one of the most beautifully written books that I have ever read. I was held captive and could not put it down.
