Since bursting onto the scene in the mid '70s, the pop duo Captain and Tennille have long defined the sparkling, optimistic idea of everlasting love, both in their music and through their image as a happy and, seemingly, unbreakable couple. They were an irresistible pair to millions of fans all over the world, further underscored by the rousing "yes, we can!" gospel of their biggest hit, "Love Will Keep Us Together". But underneath the image was an entirely different story that the fans never saw.

Toni Tennille amassed an array of chart hits, gold and platinum albums and a Grammy Award with her husband Daryl Dragon as the Captain and Tennille. In her memoir, Toni reveals many vivid details of her youth, personal triumphs and tragedies, and a glimpse inside her marriage to her musical partner. As a lifelong fan of the duo and her solo work, it was like listening to a good friend pour her heart out. Absolutely wonderful and beautifully read by Toni.
