About the Book
Author Sylvie met her first love, Gora, when she was 13 years old and living in Bangladesh. Though their time together was brief, their innocent relationship left a lasting impression. Thirty-seven years after they had first met, after marrying, becoming parents and immigrating to the United States, Sylvie still holds fond memories of the silky-haired boy who became her first love and is excited to reconnect with him and meet his family.
Inspired by true events, The Decades chronicles Sylvie’s life as she grows from a teenager in love to a loving wife and mother. It shows how many relationships we have throughout our lives influence and shape our personalities, and that while love changes with time, it never dies.
