“I am writing this book to tell people about Eric, about our love story, about our family and about my faith that has been tested but not broken,” Louise Troh said in a statement released Thursday.
“The love of my life and the father of my son came to America to marry me,” she added. “It was supposed to be the first happy day of a new life of joy for us all. But before we could make our new family, he died a terrible death in a quarantined room.”
The memoir would “be an exclusive in-depth account of Louise Troh’s long journey from Liberia to America and the decades-long love story that was stopped short by a deadly epidemic,” the Dallas Morning News reports.
Troh’s contract with Weinstein Books was inked just one day after the hospital where her husband-to-be was treated struck a deal with his family that would “take care” of Duncan’s parents and four children financially.
