The Twisted Crown

 A New Historical Novel by Anita Bunkley

Now Available at Amazon!

The Twisted Crown, inspired by the life of the author’s great-grandfather,  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 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.

Reviewers and fans have referred to Anita Bunkley’s novels as sweeping sagas that are extremely entertaining-embraced for their historical accuracy, strong romantic themes, and vivid characterizations of people of color that introduces writers to unique periods of history from the female Afro-centric point of view not widely showcased in literary works.

Anita, the author of more than twenty novels and books, is an NAACP IMAGE AWARD nominee, a member of the TEXAS INSTITUTE OF LETTERS, winner of Favorite Author Award From Go On Girl Book Club, and recipient of a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine. Read more at
