In this heartfelt memoir, six-time Grammy Award-winning artist and star of WE TV’s reality hitBraxton Family Values, Toni Braxton writes about her personal life decisions and their impact on her health, family and career.

While Braxton appears to be living a gilded life—selling 60 million records, appearing in sold-out Las Vegas performances and hit shows like Dancing with the Stars, and starring in her own reality series—hers is in fact a tumultuous story, a tale of triumph over a life filled with obstacles, including two bankruptcy filings. The mother of an autistic child, Braxton long feared that her son’s condition might be karmic retribution for earlier life choices, some of which will shock fans. But when heart ailments began plaguing her at the age of 41 and she was diagnosed with Lupus, Braxton knew she had to move beyond the self-recrimination and take charge of her own healing.  Intensely honest and deeply inspirational, Unbreak My Heart is the never-before-told story of the measures Braxton took to make herself and her family whole again.

Toni B is the most courageous woman I've ever heard of. I've always felt this way about her because no matter the adversity I've always read about her in the news over the years etc.. She somehow amazingly always never let it deter her. I marveled at and wondered where did that kind of courage and daring come from within her? On the outside of course she has the striking good looks, the talent and anyone can tell that she is very intelligent. This wonderful memoir finally gives me the answer to my question, "what's on the inside?" She is so very brave and now I know why. I won't tell you whats in the book because I don't want to spoil it for a potential reader. I will say this, Toni is very funny! He story is touching (I got misty eyed during the introduction) and laughed out loud at the humor! Thanks Toni for sharing! I heart you and God bless!

I wanted to know so much more about her religious upbringing and especially about her relationship with L.A. and Kenny. You can tell that she left out some very juicy parts of her life but it's understandable she had to protect herself and others from revealing too much to the public. I would highly recommend this book to read.

It is nice to read a book that is real. She admits her faults and doesn't apologize. I didn't realize all the drama she went through. Worth reading. Jms

I watch Braxton Family Values and I'm only 14. Mostly teenage boys don't read but when I was in target and read the first page. I was inspired and hooked on. Toni is a legend and I love her sisters. I want to be a famous singer as well and hopefully I get to the success as Toni. I'm going to BEG my parents to buy this book on nook and AT TARGET lol. Thanks Toni because I feel Iike your life is simular to mine. I Love You and may God continues to bless you and your family. See you when I'm a famous singer and actor.
