A book to encourage others May 11, 2007
I recently read this book on vacation. This book is a must read. Even if you have never suffered from depression, this book gives you an inside look at what it's like to suffer from this disease. I'm amazed at the struggles Debbie has endured over the years. She gives hope to all the people out there suffering from this horrible disease. This book will certainly change the life of anyone who reads it. If you don't understand what depression is, after you read this, you will have a new understanding of the severity of it. You will no longer just tell people who suffer from depression to "snap out of it" as you will have a full understanding of the mind of someone who suffers from it.
Debbie, this was a wonderful book and I'm sure you will make a difference in many peoples lives.
Very Touching! Mar 23, 2007
I read this book in just 1 day on my way into NYC/work on the train. I couldn't put it down... my thoughts, actions and emotions were on fire throughout the entire read of the book. You truly never realize what life throws at each individual person... You are an amazing person to put your words on paper for the world to see in hopes of helping someone else. Congratulatons on your new life Debbie....
Touching first attempt Mar 11, 2007
In reading Deborah Hurley's first book, I hung on to every word just waiting to see how each segment would unfold. Although there were set- back's along the way, the victory over what had nearly totally destroyed her was inspiring! Congratulations on your first book and many more.
A look inside depression Mar 8, 2007
A fabulous insight to one womans life...Fragments of Hope takes you through the life of a true survivor of clinal depression. Deborah shows her journey through her thoughts, feelings, trials and triumphs! This is a MUST read for anyone yearning to understand the whys of this illness and at the same time gives hope to those suffering that help is out there and you CAN make it through. I especially enjoyed the poetry written throughout the book. What makes this book stand out is that it is not a medical history, but a personal one.
Great Job! Feb 19, 2007
Deborah Hurley does an outstanding job of providing insight into depression. It is a powerful book that has you praying for her recovery from this paralyzing illness. Deborah is a courageous person who's first hand account sheds light on a greatly misunderstood illness. Way to go Deborah!
