Book Description

"A shockingly TRUE account of a woman living part of her teenage years and young adulthood as a Muslim wife and eventually became part of a 'Harem' inside of one of the most influential underground cults in the United States.
Assuming the pen name of Ruby Garnett at the request of her family, the author recounts the circumstances that led her to eventually be enticed by the religious extremist dogma of one of the most charismatic, influential underground cult leaders Black America has seen since since the likes of Father Divine... Garnett has a candidly-intimate conversation with the reader about her state of mind from beginning to end.
She wrote ""Soul Sacrifice"" for the children that came forward to let someone know about the sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of Nuwabian cult leader Malachi York. Despite the threats, harrassment and lack of support (from some of their own brainwashed parents), these brave survivors of abuse are the reason this story needs to be heard..."

About the Author

Ruby Garnett dropped out of A. Phillip Randolph HS in 1986 and joined a cult. After returning home in 1992, the experience led her to write her first book entitled, "Soul Sacrifice". She attended Bowie State University, majoring in Early Childhood/Special Education; minoring in Music. Born at Mt. Sinai hospital in NY to Donald (of Panamanian descent) and Jersey City naitive-Carolyn, Garnett and her brother David grew up in Jamaica, NY. The author's love of reading and writing were sparked by her mother who kept a stocked bookcase, and read to her children every night. In school, Garnett (the author's pen name) received honors in English, Reading and Creative Writing. The author enjoys the fact she and her brother and family live 10mins from eachother, and remains an avid writer/reader. She is married to her "heart" Stephen and resides in Prince George's County, MD, working as a Dental Receptionist. The next project is a fictional peice entitled "Never Again" and pt. two of "Soul Sacrifice" entitled "Picking Up a Thousand Pieces" are in progress . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! What a story! August 14, 2012
Format:Paperback
Shocking, truthful, amazing triumph, scary & truly enlightening. This is a story all parents must read. Ruby's candid look at how any one's life can change is just ming blowing. All I can say is if you have a daughter, you should read this book. Ruby Garnett delves into the world of cult leader Malachi Z York and his incredible control of people as one of his many wives. It's an explosive account of her years in the cult and being a wife/partner to a mad man. Great read, easy read and most definitely recommend it!

Sometimes we can be so disenchanted with life that we forget that there is something bigger than you and I, something that deserves our all and is there for us no matter what happens. We can choose to embrace it or run from it, but He will always be there, hoping we find our way back.

In SOUL SACRIFICE by Ruby Garnett we are able to take the journey of a young girl who must look past man and see the God that created all things and wants the best for her. Religion threatens to destroy her, but it is faith that will make her whole. Before she realizes that, however, she has to go through a series of events that will test her in every way imaginable. Her beliefs will be challenged her relationships strained... in the end she sees the only one to turn to is the One who wanted the best for her all the time.

SOUL SACRIFICE's subtitle "One Story of Many" reminds us that there are many out there who share the story of Ruby Garnett. They are her, but their inability to put into words the events that have happened in their lives are given a platform through her story. It's not just about religion, misplaced trust, abuse and betrayal. It is the story of individuals who have their power taken from them, and the fight to reclaim it at all cost.

Men and woman---young and old---will benefit from the lessons learned along the way. It is the author's hope that her story will save others from experiencing the hurt and heartache that she endured. By sharing her story we can make sure that it does just that.

Raw and real from beginning to end, SOUL SACRIFICE shows what it take to be whole.
