NEW YORK (AP) The fiancee of Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan has a book deal.
Louise Troh's memoir is scheduled for April 28, to be published jointly by The Weinstein Company and The Perseus Book Group. Weinstein tells The Associated Press the book currently is untitled.
Duncan died Oct. 8 and remains the only Ebola patient in the U.S. to die. The Liberian man initially was sent from the emergency room of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas with antibiotics, something hospital administrators have acknowledged was a mistake.
On Wednesday, Duncan's family reached a settlement with the hospital, but Troh was not involved.
In a statement issued Thursday through Weinstein, Troh says the book will tell of her life with Duncan and how her faith had been "tested but not broken."
