Author to discuss novel based on local couple

Visitors to the Greenwich Senior Center are in for a treat on July 25 at 10:30 a.m. when author Nancy A. Prieston stops by to discuss her novel, I’ll Never Leave You, which is based on a real-life Greenwich couple.

Imagine a love so powerful that it refuses to die — Anna travels between later years in search of her cherished book and the former years of youth, where her world as a baby drastically changed after the shock of her mother’s early death. Anna suffers from abuse, which adds to the effects of an erratic heart, and lives with a rare genetic oral disease. Her mother leaves her in prayer with a request that Anna will have a life of love.

In 1938, Dan, an accomplished wood worker, sees Anna on a street corner in Greenwich and he is powerfully drawn to her, despite the fact that she is many years his junior. He sees past Anna’s shy exterior, dirty face and tattered clothes and is captivated by her beauty, despite the discoloration of her teeth.

Their bond grows in secret while Dan loves her unconditionally, protecting her with his patience, kindness, and gentle nature until she is old enough for him to be introduced to her father. Their unique connection and faith deepen as they are separated during World War II, when Dan writes Anna the story of his love for her and the journey of their relationship.
