June 17, 2014

holy candy by yolande benerHarlem World Magazine’s Yolande Brener is a talented wellness enthusists who writes about arts and culture in Harlem. Here’s what Amazon said about her new book.

What is the purpose of life?

Is there a spiritual world?

Does true love exist?

If there is a God, why does he allow innocents to suffer?

The desire to find answers to these questions–passed to her on a business card–led Yolande Brener to enter a bizarre, 15-year odyssey in a cult that would climax in her participation in one of the largest mass marriages in history. In Holy Candy, Yolande pulls back the curtain on the church’s doings – but this is far from a simple black and white expose.

Wow! Authentic, transparent, beautifully and wisely written… Wendy

Potent. Owen C.

Spooky, riveting, and utterly believable, this beautifully written memoir will keep you reading… – Amazon
