At the one-year anniversary of his death, legendary musician Prince's first wife shares a uniquely intimate, candid, and revelatory look inside the personal and professional life of one of the world's most beloved icons.
In The Most Beautiful, a title inspired by the hit song Prince wrote about their legendary love story, Mayte Garcia for the first time shares the deeply personal story of their relationship and offers a singular perspective on the music icon and their world together: from their unconventional meeting backstage at a concert (and the long-distance romance that followed), to their fairy-tale wedding (and their groundbreaking artistic partnership), to the devastating losses that ultimately dissolved their romantic relationship for good. Throughout it all, they shared a bond more intimate than any other in Prince's life. No one else can tell this story or can provide a deeper, more nuanced portrait of Prince -- both the famously private man and the pioneering, beloved artist -- than Mayte, his partner during some of the most pivotal personal and professional years of his career. The Most Beautiful is a book that will be returned to for decades, as Prince's music lives on with generations to come.

Even better than the book
I had already read the book, but listening to the love in Mayte’s voice was so much better. No interviewers trying to interrupt. I hope she continues to fill us in on her incredible life with with Prince, her rescue, her health and business, and her gorgeous Gia. This is one VERY special woman!
Well written and worth the money for the audiobook
This book was written with love. I was impressed at how well organized she was in expressing herself and how vividly she explained her perceptions of the world around her in this book. I felt like I grew up with her and saw the world through her eyes. I laughed and cried. She has a good spirit and that shows through her writing. I am sure that is why Prince was so in love with her.
I enjoyed this book immensely. A beautiful and horribly sad love story. My heart kept hoping for a happy ending although I already knew how the story ended. Prince was joining the JW religion as I was leaving it and it always baffled me how he could've ended up there. This book answered that question. Mayte Garcia's love for him still shines through. Beautiful.
