The TWISTED CROWN
by Anita Richmond Bunkley
This new historical novel takes readers from the bustling
streets of Boston at the height of the Abolitionist movement to the war-ravaged landscape of Reconstruction-era South Carolina.
Eva Phillips, a woman of spirit and fire who was born in slavery, but lived as free, undertakes a remarkable journey into the unfamiliar, complicated, and dangerous landscape of 1867 South Carolina to search for the mother who gave her away.
The turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that await Eva provide her with the strength and purpose required to fulfill her unrelenting quest.
The TWISTED CROWN, is rich in authentic historical details, alive with unforgettable characters, and brilliantly brings a vanished period of African American history to life again.
The novel explores the post-Civil War era of American Reconstruction from the black female point of view, providing a unique perspective on a period of American history that is often overlooked, and rarely featured, in black literary fiction. The story was inspired by the life of the author’s great-grandfather, a white Northerner who came to South Carolina after the Civil War and eventually served as a state senator in South Carolina during Reconstruction.
