Local Author Reveals the Truths of Love, War and Slave Trade in Newly Released Novel
Timely and encouraging, “Touched” intertwines gruesome accounts of the African slave trade with uplifting themes of racial unification and heroism.
The third book of local author Richard “Nana” Bonsu, “Touched” tells the story of Sam, a professional slave hunter, and his struggle to overcome prejudice after he falls in love and marries Princess Obrenpongba, the daughter of an Ashanti king. Set in Africa during the Civil War, Nana’s narrative reveals truths behind the slave trade on the Gold Coast and the treatment of those who chose to fight against.
With the recent opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the release of “Touched,” with its tales of slavery from Nana’s hometown in Ghana, could not have come at a better time. Nana balances the difficult topic of racial bias and the power of love fluently in this stirring, 238-page read.
“Touched” is published by Foresight Book Publishing, a Chattanooga-based self-publisher that specializes in inspirational literature and business branding books for professionals of any field.
RICHARD “NANA” BONSU is a Chattanooga resident with a passion for making a difference. Wanting the focus to be solely on his writing and not on himself, Nana Bonsu credits all of his work to God for His wisdom and inspiration. When not writing books in Chattanooga, Nana performs his professional duties in Ghana, Africa, as the umbrella chief of Ashanti, a region of Ghana bordering the Gulf of Guinea. Nana is the author of two additional books, “Claimed,” the story of a man torn between Christian beliefs and the traditions of his country, and “Give a Darn,” an illustrated compilation of three whimsical stories encouraging readers to care about their surroundings and neighbors.
