This novel brings the reader into the realm of miracles found clashing with profound evil. One is left breathless knowing the strength of the ever-present evil on the prowl to destroy the beautiful soul embodied in a mistrusted black child.
     Born with the stigma of sky blue eyes and an inability to speak, the populace of the little burg of Barnfield fears his presence. Two women diametrically opposite in social status are the exceptions. One is Ophelia, his mother who thanks God daily for her son. The other is Lucy, the wife of the Overlord Charles Barnard.
     Lucy’s love is the catalyst lighting the fire of hatred for this ‘interloper’ into her affections. R. Ed, son and only child of Lucy and Charles, becomes the vessel used by Satanic forces to destroy this miracle-producing child.
     Will evil overcome good? Will this wonderful, heavenly gift be destroyed? What will transpire? Read Kuimba to find the answers to these questions and more.

As a caterpillar goes out of its dark cocoon, grows its wings, and flies high up in the sky, I acknowledge my role in the entire process of the written word's metamorphosis through The Chrysalis BREW Project. I believe that beauty and goodness exist in everything and everyone - may we let that emerge and shine in each word we read, concoct, write, or share.

  1. This one’s one of the most original pieces of fiction I’ve read. I admit I can be sensitive to a book with such heavy religious content, which often strike me as preachy, but that’s not the case with “Kiumba.” Also, I really appreciate the historical layer because at least in other countries (I’m not American) we are often left with the impression that the abolition of slavery brought racial equality, which it didn’t, as the social climate of this book shows.

    1. Hi, Priscilla.

      Thank you for giving us the privilege to join you in your author journey.

      Our work does not end with the creation of the posts because it is merely the beginning. We have been working round the clock since last week when you signed up for this; we are and will still be doing so today, tomorrow and every day until the last day of when we promised to do so. You and your books deserve to be known and appreciated by all of us in the readers community, and we are happy to do that for you.

    2. By the way, now that we’ve got your attention here, we hope you don’t mind if we ask you a few more questions about you and your book as well.

      1. A lot of us could only dream about writing our own book one day. At what point in time did you first realize that you should write your first piece?
      2. Were you a book lover as a kid?
      3. If yes, what was your first favorite book, and why?
      4. What prompted you to write Kuimba?
      5. What was your inspiration for writing Kuimba’s character?
      6. Do you have anyone in your life who resembles Kuimba or has any of his characteristics/experiences?
      7. Which book that you’ve read before closely resembles Kuimba’s story?

      The above is our first set of questions. We hope to post other questions, when we feature your other books soon so we’ve got more to look forward to.

      Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond, in as much as we appreciate this chance you’ve given us for promoting your book.
