Publisher's Summary

The best-selling solo R&B artist finally opens up about her rocky past and her path to redemption.

While Toni Braxton may appear to be living a charmed life, hers is in fact a tumultuous story: A tale of personal triumph after a public unraveling. In her heartfelt memoir, the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer and star of WE tv's hit reality series Braxton Family Values is unapologetically honest in revealing the intimate details of her journey.

Toni and the entire Braxton clan have become America's favorite musical family, but what fans may not know is the intense guilt Toni once felt when she accepted a recording deal that excluded her sisters. That decision would haunt Toni for years to come, tainting the enormous fame she experienced as a popular female vocalist at the top of the charts. Despite her early accomplishments, Toni's world crumbled when she was forced to file for bankruptcy twice and was left all alone to pick up the pieces.

Always the consummate professional, Toni rebuilt her life but then found herself in the midst of more heartache. The mother of an autistic child, Toni had long feared that her son's condition might be karmic retribution for some of the life choices that left her filled with remorse. Later, when heart ailments began plaguing her at the age of 41 and she was diagnosed with lupus, Toni knew she had to move beyond the self-recrimination and take charge of her own healing - physically and spiritually.

Unbreak My Heart is more than the story of Toni's difficult past and glittering success: It is a story of hope, of healing, and, ultimately, of redemption.

    "I love the content and story, but not narration..."

    Toni's story had me at hello. I wish there was better narration though. The narrator speaks well, but her inflection at times falls flat.

    "Love this book."

    Thank you Toni for giving us a glimpse into you life. This book reviles the truth from the one that truly knows. Toni is candid about the many misperseptions that have taken place in her career. A excellent read.

    Story
    "Loved the story, but the narrator..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone and you don't even have to be a Toni Braxton fan to enjoy it. The book takes you through her parents first meeting to her awkward childhood to being signed by LA Reid and Babyface and even gets into the Braxton Family Values, her health issues and her sons Autism. I can't imagine that she held anything back with all that was shared in this story. It was excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Toni of course, but not just because it's her story, but because I found quite a few similarities between she and I that I would never have guessed.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robin Eller’s performances?

    Absolutely not. I feel she did not do the book justice. She mispronounced simple words and her attempts to emote sounded like a teen in a school play. I would love to hear the book read by another narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found it to be a very emotional book and did laugh in places, but no actual tears.


    Any additional comments?

    It's definitely worth a read and/or listen even with the narrators deficiencies.
