Description de l'ouvrage

3 avril 2012
Go on an unforgettable journey, with a woman who has unimaginable strength.

Stephanie Nielson began sharing her life in 2005 on nieniedialogues.com, drawing readers in with her warmth and candor. She quickly attracted a loyal following that was captivated by the upbeat mother happily raising her young children, madly in love with her husband, Christian (Mr. Nielson to her readers), and filled with gratitude for her blessed life.

However, everything changed in an instant on a sunny day in August 2008, when Stephanie and Christian were in a horrific plane crash. Christian was burned over 40 percent of his body, and Stephanie was on the brink of death, with burns over 80 percent of her body. She would remain in a coma for four months.

In the aftermath of this harrowing tragedy, Stephanie maintained a stunning sense of humor, optimism, and resilience. She has since shared this strength of spirit with others through her blog, in magazine features, and on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Now, in this moving memoir, Stephanie tells the full, extraordinary story of her unlikely recovery and the incredible love behind it--from a riveting account of the crash to all that followed in its wake. With vivid detail, Stephanie recounts her emotional and physical journey, from her first painful days after awakening from the coma to the first time she saw her face in the mirror, the first kiss she shared with Christian after the accident, and the first time she talked to her children after their long separation. She also reflects back on life before the accident, to her happy childhood as one of nine siblings, her close-knit community and strong Mormon faith, and her fairy-tale love story, all of which became her foundation of strength as she rebuilt her life.

What emerges from the wreckage of a tragic accident is a unique perspective on joy, beauty, and overcoming adversity that is as gripping as it is inspirational. Heaven Is Here is a poignant reminder of how faith and family, love and community can bolster us, sustain us, and quite literally, in some cases, save us.

Her story is a powerful testament of the healing powers of an unyielding faith, the gift of family and the unshakeable love of her husband.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Engaging Book 3 mars 2012

I could not put down this book. I literally started it one afternoon, and finished it in the wee hours of the morning. I had recently become aware of Stephanie Nielson's story a few months ago. I had actually read a story about Mormon Mommy Bloggers on Salon, which lead me to her blog. I read a few posts and saw that she had been on Oprah...but kind of forgot about her until I saw this book come up on the Amazon Vine program. I'm not Mormon, but with all the attention on the LDS church recently, I've been trying to find out more. I figure the best way, rather than listen to the detractors, is to go to the actual church members as well as the church's website. It's been quite enlightening.

Stephanie's faith is woven throughout this book. I quite honestly do not believe she'd be here today if it wasn't for her strong faith in God (whom she and other Mormons call "Heavenly Father"). She firmly believes in the power of prayer--and the results of those beliefs come through--be it the strength to get through just one more therapy session or to handle the struggles with her children accepting her new limitations. When my husband was doing a surgical residency, the worst rotation was the burn unit. He would always come home very humbled after each day....and a full month in the burn unit was about all he could take. Stephanie was burned over 80% of her body when the small private plan she was riding in with her husband and his flying instructor crashed. Her husband was burned as well--I believe around 40-50%, as was the pilot/flight instructor (50%--did not survive.) I think the reason she survived were two fold--one her faith, and two her family. She was blessed with a large family as well as a network of church family which really came out to help her and her husband.

The book is not all about her accident or recover, however. You get a glimpse of her life before the accident--including her engagement with her husband. You also get to see how she's doing nearly three years later. It's a really inspiring book. I also think it's a good read for non-Mormons to better understand the Mormon faith. Highly highly recommended. This is a book that really makes you count your blessings and realize what is important in life.

I found a video of Stephanie on Youtube, for those that are interested... [...]

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's the story of how her life changed but it might change yours too 1 mars 2012
Par Half Fast Farmer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I was vaguely familiar with the story before I read the book. I expected the book to be the story of the plane crash and her recovery. And it was. But it felt like more. Stephanie is completely honest about her struggles. She shares her feelings and experiences even when they are negative. She talks about feeling like her family would be better off without her. She was reluctant to see her kids again. She couldn't bear to have her husband visit for a while. It isn't all rainbows are joy. But the pain she shares makes her accomplishments and attitude even more wonderful. The way she invites you to understand her struggles gave me some insight into some of my own. It also reminded me how much I love my siblings and want my own children to have that close relationship.

I had planned to read the book over a couple of days but despite the heavy subject matter it was an easy read and I read it in one night. I didn't get teary at all until near the end her little boy, Ollie, told a stranger in a resturant to stop staring at his mom. It was hard not to be moved by the little boy's courage and all that family had been through.

Stephanie says that she has accepted living in a world that doesn't accept her. If she isn't accepted, I don't think it will be because of her scarred face. It will be because she reminds us that we have a choice about how we face adversity. She reminds us what marriages should be and how families should work. We can either reach for those goals ourselves or resent her for the reminder.

I am work a little harder. Be a little more grateful. And enjoy today more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heartrendingly Beautiful 4 mars 2012
Par Sarah Bruce Kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is the most heartrending and emotionally engaging book I've read in a very long time. Stephanie Nielson speaks first-hand of the most unimaginable trauma the human body can endure--near death by fire--and makes it agonizingly real.

Heaven is Here was a difficult book to read, yet I could not put it down. I felt I was there with Stephanie at every moment, heart racing and stomach churning. From the terrifying plane crash and harrowing months of treatment and therapy through her slow and ongoing recovery, her journey became my journey.

What a wonderful gift Stephanie has given us with this terrifying and beautiful memoir. Her message of hope, determination, and love, in spite of the very worst of circumstances, has given me renewed joy in my own life as I realize how insignificant my petty complaints are and how boundless my blessings. Thank you Stepanie, what a blessing and inspiration you are to all of us!

The "Nie Nie Dialogues" blog was one I visited on a regular basis years ago. I, like so many of her readers, was stunned when we learned, through her sister's blog post, of the airplane crash that nearly took the lives of Stephanie Nielson and her husband, Christian. This is someone we "knew" -- as much as you can know anyone through their writing of a blog -- and someone we admired for her physical and spiritual beauty, as well as her obvious love for her family and home. Those of us who read Stephanie's blog BC (before crash), already knew what a special person she was. We were soon to learn of the beautiful, giving spirit of her family and friends as well, and we cheered to learn she was going to live, and we cheered more when she typed her first blog entry, months after the crash. We thought we felt her pain through her blog posts during her recovery, and we celebrated with her the tiny moments in life that Stephanie now taught us to appreciate.

I am, therefore, quite honored to review HEAVEN IN HERE by Stephanie Nielson. If you thought you knew her from "Nie Nie Dialogues", this book will give you a deeper, more personal view at Stephanie's life - both before and after the crash - that you've probably not read or truly understood before. Her brilliant writing style shines through, as does her thirst for happiness, the love of her family, and her deep commitment to her children.

This is a book about having it all and thinking it was all taken away, only to find that when door shuts, another opens -- and that the one that opens may have more beauty and love than you imagined possible. Stephanie's writing style is so intimate and personal that you will want to reach through the pages and hold her hand when she re-learns to walk, give her a hug when she cries in frustration, cheer for her when she reaches her many, and sometimes seemingly impossible, goals.

This is a true story of a love for life to an extent that few of us have until the very real possibility of death is presented to us. It will make the reader evaluate the smallest things in life that we take for granted, and recognize how much more we can do - for ourselves, for our family, for our community.

This book will make you cry, but it's far from a "sob story" as you can get. Stephanie's ability to connect with her readers personally is unsurpassed, as is evidenced by the popularity of her blog as well. This is a truly inspirational story not just about recovering from a horrific accident, but about accepting life as it is now and sharing the glory of that with those around you.

Thank you, Stephanie. I have been so touched by your book. I truly feel I am a better person from reading it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspirational Story by Well-Known Blogger 30 mars 2012
Par Bibanon1 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher.

I am always interested in how well bloggers can make the leap from the more informal style of blogging to the more formal style of writing a book. Sometimes an individual's story translates well and sometimes it doesn't. Bloggers must walk a fine line between offering something new to their long-time readers while attempting to share their story with people who may be new readers.

I started following Stephanie Nielson's NIENIE DIALOGUES blog just after her horrific plane accident in August of 2008. I was drawn to her story because of all the many many member of the blogging community who banded together to help the Nielson family. So, I have been reading her blog for the last 3.5 years. I was very familiar with her story but I was hoping her book would fill in some blanks for me as a regular reader of her blog.

Stephanie Nielson is a Mormon Mommy blogger who rose to popularity with her tales of family life and creative celebrations of every day moments. In August 2008, Stephanie and her husband Christian were a plane crash that killed their friend and pilot Doug Kinneard. Stephanie and Christian were both horribly burned with Stephanie sustaining burns to 80% of her body. For the next three months following the crash, Stephanie hovered between life and death in a medically-induced coma. Almost four years after the accident, Stephanie and her family have battled their way back from the accident as they recreated their lives and relationships.

I appreciated the amount of detail that Stephanie included in this book. It filled in many blanks for me. We learn of how she met Christian and their courtship and subsequent marriage. We learn more about their early years together when Stephanie first became a mother and started blogging. And then there is the accident itself. Stephanie is blunt and honest about her feelings when she finally woke from her coma and how she struggled to come to terms with her new life. The most poignant moments in the book come from her attempts to reconnect with her children. She doesn't gloss over anything and share how difficult her journey was and how much she had to rely on her faith.

The one thing I felt was missing from this story was how Stephanie and Christian rebuilt THEIR relationship. When Stephanie appeared on "Oprah," she was still recovering and sorting through her memories of the plane crash. At this time, she believed Christian pulled her from the plane. It was later revealed that he did not as he thought she had been able to follow him from the plane on her own. Stephanie's sisters have talked frankly about how hard it was for Stephanie and Christian to rebuild their relationship even though there was never any doubt that they would. I was very surprised that Stephanie didn't touch on any of this in her memoir. It is a confusing omission.

Still, the story of the Nielson family is one of faith and the strength of love and family. I think it will appeal to many family- and faith-oriented readers even if they haven't read the NIENIE DIALOGUES before. Long-time readers will find that the story they have followed so closely is more fleshed out in this book. It is wonderful to see how far Stephanie and her family have come since the accident. Especially since they are now expecting their fifth child any day now.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended for fans of inspirational memoirs. It is definitely an inspiring story of faith and love that will probably leave you wanting to learn more about Nielson family.
