“Everybody loves a love story, because love is what makes the world go round,” says Gomes.

Eloise dreams of becoming a ballerina and an actress. When her overbearing parents step in and limit her opportunities, Eloise becomes engaged to an older divorced man and begins making plans to emigrate from Brazil to the United States to attend graduate school. But when her fiancé dies in a plane crash just six weeks before they are to depart, Eloise is left wondering if she will ever find room in her broken heart to love again.

In Alina Gomes’ “Eloise: A Love Story” (published by Archway Publishing), a young woman embarks on a coming-of-age journey that leads her from Brazil to America where she learns to trust in the power of true love.

“Everybody loves a love story, because love is what makes the world go round,” says Gomes.

An excerpt from “Eloise”:
At first Eloise didn’t react. She was sure Roger was alive. She would not accept his death. They had a dream. They had a future together. He would not leave her alone in the world. He would be back soon. She stood up, but she was wobbling. Then she lowered down onto her knees, next to her mother. “Mom,” she said, “We have to say a prayer together now. Let’s all pray. We have to ask God to send Roger back to us. I don’t want to live life without him.”
