The book will be published by the Weinstein Group in partnership with the Perseus Books Group.

Kathleen Schmidt, publicity director for Weinstein Books said that it will be, “the story of, as she puts it, the love of her life and the father of their son. He came to America to marry her and it was supposed to be a happy time, but before they could make their new family he died in a quarantined room from Ebola.”

Troh was herself quarantined for 21 days. She released a statement saying, “My beloved fiancée, Thomas Eric Duncan, who was also the father of my son, Karsiah Eric Duncan, did not survive with us. We continue to mourn his loss and grieve the circumstances that led to his death, just at the time we thought we were facing a happy future together. Our hearts also go out to the two brave women who have been infected by this terrible disease as they were trying to help him. We are also aware of how much this has affected many other people of my city, Dallas, and my country, the United States of America, even as it has in the country of my birth, Liberia.”

The book is due out next April.
