Beautiful Affliction: A Memoir by Lene Fogelberg

http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Affliction-Memoir-Lene-Fogelberg-ebook/dp/B014QUWNNG

Lene Fogelberg is dying―she is sure of it―but no doctor in Sweden, her home country, believes her. Love stories enfold her, with her husband, her two precious daughters, her enchanting surroundings, but the question she has carried in her heart since childhood―Will I die young?―is threatening all she holds dear, even her sanity. When her young family moves to the US, an answer, a diagnosis, is finally found: she is in the last stages of a fatal congenital heart disease. But is it too late?

“Exquisite imagery and poetic prose pulse through this powerful, emotionally gripping story. With Beautiful Affliction, Lene Fogelberg gives us a gorgeously written story to savor and share, while adding her shimmering, deeply intelligent voice to the literary pantheon.”
—TERRI GIULIANO LONG, author of USA Today bestseller In Leah’s Wake
