Product description


"At first, I thought it was a collection of short stories until it dawned on me that it's a collection of significant events that encompassed the struggle of a immigrant. It's a story about ambition, the bravery to push through with it, and the difficulties that Black Candy faced. It is well-written. It was almost diary-like to me. The author was able to set the tone of the story in a way that it was easy for the reader to empathise with him. You can almost hear the calm in his voice. The desperation. The frustration. The resistance to give up. Each chapter served as a catalyst for greater things that are yet to come for all of the characters. The story has its heavy moments, moments when the reader can sigh along with Black Candy, It touched on so many realities in someone's life that it was so easy to put oneself in Black Candy's shoes." Dawn, Dubai.

"Black Candy is an ultimate Change Management case study, perfectly disguised in a family adventure story. It is a must read for those who are looking for a fresh start." Kary Oberbrunner, author of Your Secret Name, The Deeper Path, Day Job to Dream Job, and The Elixir Project.

"This is an informative primer for those who want to migrate to Australia from a country of entirely different demographics... A proud moment for all migrants in the Northern Territory." Dr Edwin Lourdes Joseph JP, President of Multicultural Council of the Northern Territory (MCNT).

"This book is a very detailed and good depiction of the many expectations and challenges associated with moving to a new country. I could relate strongly to some of your stories, having moved countries myself!" Madeleine Faught, Chair of Rainforest Rescue, NSW, Australia.

"An inspirational book that traces a man that never say No to adverse circumstances because he knows he can overcome the odds." Sungkeng Er, Singapore

"A charming account ..." Kathryn, Australia

"Your story is just great" Belinda, Nigeria.

"So inspirational...!" Roxy, USA

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 November 2020
I love this book, because is about determination. I am a ‘foreigner’ too, I understand the need to change life, all the fight to achieve what you want. A very nice story!
