Overview

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

Really good book. A real love story written beautifully. I have been a fan of this man since 1980. I've seen his evolution. I was quite interested in hearing more about Mayte considering that when she came in his life he became a different man. Their time together was a pivotal time in his life. Despite the heartbreak and the tragedy they experienced, she tells this story with her heart. To all the naysayers, perhaps you should actually read the book before judging. Excerpts, within context, seem to make more sense to me. Reading this book proves that she respected him in both life and death. Her story dispels any of the rumors that have floated around for years about the couple. Her story also shows a different side on Prince.. Glad I purchased it.

Laughter and tears. It is so strange to be alive in a world without Prince... I would recommend this book to anyone who grew up listening and dancing to Prince's music. Very well written with heart and soul. Thank you Mayte for sharing with us. Blessings

I've long been a fan of Prince and his music. Mayte did an excellent job of describing life with a music icon. You are able to see the man he was through her eyes and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. 5 stars for Mayte Garcia ! I hope in time, perhaps she will write another book whether it's about her life with Prince or another subject, I think she is a talented author and would enjoy reading more of her work.

I was absolutely impressed by this book and truly enjoyed reading it. Mayte, your story is amazing. I have always loved our homeboy Prince. Your story shows his human side. You are an amazing woman who has experienced a lot of heartache yet you wrote a book that is uplifting, understanding, and forgiving. Thank you for sharing your story with us!

I really enjoyed reading this memoir. A lot of it was extremely heartbreaking and hard to get through. Mayte makes people realize Prince was a human like everyone else. Nothing "bad" or "scandalous" at all here even though she received much criticism for writing a book he wouldnt have liked. This was her life, too, and her husband happened to be Prince. This book is a must read!

I feel that she told a very truthful story here. It was very personal, and she even cried when doing the audiobook version (which I listened to.) I think she is very brave for writing this book and appreciate her story.

After just visiting Paisley Park, this book provided insight into the beautiful world of Prince and his music. Though painful to read at times, there's light and love. Thank you Mayte!

This is an inside look at the mysterious Prince. Everyone loved him but no one truly knew him.

This is an absolutely wonderful book. It made me cry. My wife and I suffered two miscarriages before having our daughter. She's an energetic 4-month old and, like all fathers, I sometimes worry if I'm doing everything in my power to make her life better. Reading this book has given me a very positive feeling: we will all be fine! I have been a Prince / O(+> fan for most of my life. There were times in my life / his career when I found his music particularly inspiring. The time when Mayte and Prince were together was among those times ( The O(+> album through Newpower Soul). This was when I myself was becoming spiritually curious and the music really spoke to me then. I know Mayte had a significant hand in inspiring the music, so I was a Mayte fan as well (never mind the fact that the first time I saw Prince live was during the Act 1 tour and Mayte was so important for that tour). I was heartbroken when they fell apart and, to be honest, his music lost me...for a while. But as always, he won me back. How I wish he was still here! Thanks, Mayte, for this wonderful story. I can't wait to read your next book, whatever the subject.
