An American Classic Love Story: KENNIG & GOLD by Christopher M. Struck

S For Story/10380352
Daniel Kennig dreamed of fame and fortune…but when he meets Cynthia Gold on April 5, 1948, it will change both their lives forever.

LIVONIA, Mich. - s4story -- Inspired by a true story, Kennig & Gold is an American classic love story set against the backdrop of New York City in the 1940s. "The inspiration for Kennig & Gold came from my friendship with a WWII marine. I saw in his real-life love story an opportunity to share an iconic American tale. He was a good guy and became a sort of mentor, and he also gave me advice on New York," says author Christopher M. Stuck. "Apparently, Frank Sinatra had once attempted to steal his girl at a party when he and Sinatra were both teens. And that small story, in essence, created the characters of Daniel Kennig and Cynthia Gold."

Cynthia Gold has just completed her degree at Columbia University and is set to move back to London when she spies the young Daniel Kennig across a café on 11th Street and Broadway. Intrigued by the boy with the book, she approaches him and sets in place a sequence of events that will change their fates forever. After an incredible evening dancing at a party at one of New York's finest hotels, they debate their tremulous future. Cynthia tells him she must leave New York, and although she likes him, their ill-fated romance must end.
