Long Island Author demolishes nineteen-year major depression undergoing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation; releases second edition of her candid book.

Lewis Wolpert, a professor of Biology of University College, London reviews Fragments, “A most moving account of a terrible depression and a recovery.” Jeanne Rubbo, LMSW, reviews, “Fragments of Hope is full of soul baring, intimate experiences of her battle with depression. As a professional in the mental health field, this book has helped me to have a better understanding of the depths of this disease.”

Hurley, a mother of two and lifelong resident of Long Island, had the first edition to Fragments of Hope published in 2006 by Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing, Inc. She has been working for the past three years on a new edition, adding a “Part Two” as well as making the book available on Kindle, iBook, Nook, and eReader. Hurley and her husband launched their own publishing company named Twofold Publishing, under the umbrella of her previous publisher, to release the second edition to an international audience.

Over the past twenty years, Hurley discovered a way to fight her illness while at the same time be a loving mother to her two children and maintain a strong and steady marriage. As Hurley suffered and battled her internal affliction, she continuously wrote detailed notes on what was taking place inside her body. Hurley's powerful journal entries have allowed her to deliver one of the most true-to-life books on severe depression with a rare combination of candidness and hope.

Hurley states, “What I have come to fully understand is that this book's creation began from my intense desire to share what I know through direct experience, providing firsthand knowledge to those who suffer, arming them with useful information so that they can be better equipped to fight their battles.”
