On the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards, the world learned of a stunning tragedy: Whitney Houston, unquestionably one of the most remarkable and powerful voices in all of music, had been silenced forever. Over the weeks and months that followed, family, friends, and fans alike tried to understand how such a magnificent talent and beautiful soul could have been taken so early and so unexpectedly. Honest and heartbreaking, this is a mother's story of tears, joy, and her greatest love of all: her daughter, Whitney.

i cried so much through out this book. the reader, robin miles sounded like it was cissy herself. you felt every emotion in her voice; sad, happy, worried, proud; the exact way cissy intended you to feel as you read about a mother's love for her daughter. I'll always miss Whitney, but reading this helped bring some full circle closure. for those wanting more of Whitney, read this book! even my 12 year old son was captivated with her life as told by her mother. there was also some sage and wise advice. cissy also included lyrics to songs and how they literally resonated with their lives. thank you cissy, for putting your love and life in words. i could read (listen) this again and again!
