It is my pleasure to share the news of the latest release by Miriam Hurdle… a memoir The Winding Road: A Journey of Survival. On preorder for August 26th.

About the book

In the summer of 2008, Miriam Hurdle was diagnosed with melanoma-an aggressive and invasive cancer in her internal organs. The survival rate before 2008 was low. Besides risking harsh treatments for a slim chance of survival, Miriam had hoops to jump through. By the time she received treatment at the beginning of 2009, her cancer had progressed from stage II to stage IV. It was a rough and uphill winding road. But alongside her was support and encouragement. Accompanied by the love of her family and community, this is Miriam’s journey of faith and miracle. It is a heartwarming story of resilience, courage, and the will to live.

The Winding Road: Pre-order is Here

August has a significant meaning for me. I want to publish my memoir, The Winding Road: A Journey of Survival, this month for a special reason.

Fourteen years ago, on July 31st, 2008, I entered my cancer journey. It was late at night, after my hysterectomy surgery, and my gynecologist came to my hospital room to break the news to me I had aggressive cancer. My life has changed forever on all counts-physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.

The obstacles I had to overcome to get the treatment were more stressful than the treatment itself. They played a big part in the story. Fifty-three weeks later, the first week of August 2009, was my last week of radiation. 

.

To celebrate my thirteen years of remission, my second life, and the return of my health, I want to make my story available on Amazon in August. It’s available for pre-order. It’ll be downloaded to your Kindle on August 26, 2022.

The launch tour is from Monday, September 5 to Monday, September 12, 2022. I love to see you there.

A Note: 2008 was the year of recession. Many of my friends suffered a different loss. Some lost their jobs because of the companies downsizing or relocating to Colorado or Texas. Some lost their investments in stocks. Others lost their homes. We can’t predict our future. The unexpected stressful situations could come without warming. Losing my health and fighting for my life is just one of these many stories. I want to join hands with other people who suffer and be an encouragement to each other.
