I’m very happy to have George here today on my book blog, and to share more about him with all of my friends and readers. We met through the Social Media site LinkedIn, a great place to meet other professionals. I happen to see him in our Writers/Book groups we both are members of, and his book sounded interesting to me. Here is a little about my new friend, and about his book that I can not wait to read. And yes, I will do a review when I’m done and share it here on my book blog for all to come read!

About The Book:
The Akan House of Mystery is a book that explains the nature of the Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast. The Akan are a very determined people who will not be suppressed and will do what they must to achieve their goals.
Their reasons for matrilineal inheritance are noted, along with the ramifications. This in-depth book shows why there is the need for continuity of rebirth with women as the wheel of the revolving cycle, as well as the power given them, and the need to help them gain the respect due women not only in Akan lands but in all of Africa.
It tells how the warrior queen Abena Pokua, the first Asante queen under the Asante confederacy during the reign of Nana Osei Tutu 1 (1680-1717), rebelled and led her people to the present day Ivory Coast after the death of Nana in war.
History shows how the Baoule kingdom of Ivory Coast came about, and how Abena Pokua occupied a golden stool from the Comoe river in Ivory Coast, with the Asantehene occupying the golden stool commanded from the sky in Ghana.
The book’s mysteries delve into the concepts of death, ghosts, God, Satan, witchcraft, and wizards.

Here is one readers thoughts:
~ Five Stars, October 20, 2014 ~
Now as an author myself, I feel we all have a story to tell within us. No matter where we come from nor what kind of life we have lived, I find it interesting that when others share their life, history, and heritage past or present, in time, our stories and books will be there for others to read about our generation. It too may become part of history when we are long gone from this earth. What ever journey or path we have walked or come from, either perfect or not, will become part of history in the future. It too will show our struggles of this era. Our society is so very different than the many generations before us. That’s what I find most interesting about George’s book.
His story he shares about his country, heritage, history, and his people will be part of our future history. I feel we need more writers to share, write, and give an insightful looks at life through Biographies and Memoirs for just these reasons. Especially when the authors are from other parts of the world. I’m happy George has done this as I have. I hope you will take a journey of words with him by reading his book. Here are a few places you can connect with this wonderful author, and where to purchase his book too!
