“The Twisted Crown, the newest historical novel by Anita Bunkley, is a fascinating look into the post-Civil War South focused on a free black woman from the North..highly recommend joining Eva Phillips on her exciting voyage to the land of her birth and learning more about the United States’ most interesting periods of history.”  Literary Titan “FOUR STARS”


“The Twisted Crown delves into various social, political, and cultural facets of African American history …. the power of fictional experience based on real events successfully empowers a story that proves multifaceted and hard to put down.”  Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Mid-Western Review of Books


“A gripping historical novel.” BookBub


“… a well-turned piece of historical fiction that seamlessly weaves together real events that happened during the Civil War and the reconstruction years” AuthorsReading.com

“... a layered exploration of family, loss, and love that deftly interweaves the socioeconomic, political, and racial tensions in Northern and Southern states during and after the Civil War.”                                                                                      The BookLife Prize

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


It’s 1867. The Civil War and slavery have ended. South Carolina remains in near ruin and the federal government’s attempt to reconstruct the political and cultural environment of the former rebel state is underway.


Into that unfamiliar and turbulent environment travels Eva Phillips, a woman of spirit and determination, who undertakes a remarkable journey where she is drawn into a dangerous web of lies, theft, and murder. 


The Twisted Crown is “…an intriguing and enlightening story of a black woman’s remarkable journey during a pivotal time in America’s history. A well told story.“

Everett Prewitt, Award-winning Author eprewitt.com
