Publisher's Summary

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.

Written and read by Mayte Garcia.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Highly recommended"

    Thanks to Mayte for sharing her story in such a loving and respectful way. I've been incredibly moved and inspired by Prince's music for 35 years. This book has a beautiful balance between honesty and tender remembering of someone who knew the man behind the symbol, so to speak. I went into listening to this with as open mind as possible for someone who loves Prince's music as much, and I'm personally very glad I listened and recommend it highly

    Story
    "Worth the buy."

    I kept finding reasons to put my headphones back on and listen to the story. I have always been a Prince fan and Mayte Garcia has given a brief insight of their life in a respectful tone. It can't be easy for a 16 year old to absorb an icon like Prince and their story is of love, loss and life beyond. Well worth a listen.

    Story
    "Beautifully narrated"

    Beautifully narrated by Mayte Garcia herself. A lot of criticism appeared from many Prince fan's before this book came out. I feel Mayte had every right to tell her story and for me this has been welcome, as a Prince fan myself I feel this book was honest and sincere and maybe just maybe writing this was a form of counselling for her.

    "Essential to listen rather than read this book"

    Maytes heartful performance makes the lighter moments a joy and the dark times genuinely emotional. a must for Prince fans and a great insight into a rock stars inner life.

    Story
    "Very beautiful and emotional. A great story! love!"

    Mayte is so clever. She has strength dignity, softness and a lot of inner beauty. This story puts so much into perspective. There is a polar opposite of experiencing heaven on earth.
