Summary, etc.:
Thomas Eric Duncan, the first man ever to die of ebola in America, met Troh in a village in the Ivory Coast. She breaks her silence about her experience in this deeply moving memoir, chronicling the decade-long love story that ends in an isolation ward in Dallas, Texas. But losing her fiancé was just the beginning of her ordeal, as her family was "decontaminated," all their belongings destroyed, and her family moved to a support center. This is a side of the ebola story that will surprise many readers.
