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.
