The Romance that Sparked an Epidemic of Fear: A Memoir of the Life and Death of Thomas Eric Duncan, America's First Ebola Victim

By (author) Louise Troh, With Christine Wicker

Louise Troh—fiancée of Thomas Eric Duncan, the first man ever to die of Ebola in America—breaks her silence about her experience in this deeply moving memoir, chronicling the decade-long love story that starts in Liberia and ends in an isolation ward in Dallas, Texas.

Louise Troh is the fiancée of Thomas Eric Duncan, who became the first person to die of the Ebola virus in America on October 8, 2014. Troh is from Liberia and currently lives with her family in Dallas, Texas.
Christine Wicker is a former religion reporter for The Dallas Morning News and the author of New York Times bestseller Lily Dale: The True Story of the Town that Talks to the Dead. She has written for Parade magazine, Huffington Post, and AOL's Politics Daily. She met Louise Troh through their congregation at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, where she lives.
