Brighton author Melissa Ann Hopely inspires others to turn heartbreak into Hope
Brighton Publishing proudly announces a Deleware county, PA CBSchannel 3 philly report featuring Brighton author Melissa Ann Hopely and her book "The people you meet in real life."
Are you ready to be inspired? There is a new version of a book from a Delaware County mom about turning heartbreak and hardship into hope, and finding a way through darkness. Most families at some point have difficult times, whether it's illness, divorce, addiction or depression.
The book is about how people have overcome what seems impossible.
"I had this everyday life, but inside I was struggling,"
Hopely was a standout athlete, but she was consumed with "feelings of worthlessness."
"I couldn't get out of bed," she said.
How Hopely turned darkness to light is a journey she is telling in her book called "The People You Meet In Real Life."
"I started sharing my story and it was like a magnet. I go through this too. Oh my gosh, I want to share my story. Then literally all of a sudden I had 30 people that wanted to be a part of this," Hopely said.
The real life stories in the book come from people around Philadelphia impacted by all kinds of heartache and hardships. They not only survive, but they're able to find hope and inspiration. Her book is available online at Amazon, Barnes and noble and other leading book retailers in addition to any bookstore nationwide.
