Publisher's Summary

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.
Written and read by Mayte Garcia.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Mayte for sharing her story in such a loving and respectful way. I've been incredibly moved and inspired by Prince's music for 35 years. This book has a beautiful balance between honesty and tender remembering of someone who knew the man behind the symbol, so to speak. I went into listening to this with as open mind as possible for someone who loves Prince's music as much, and I'm personally very glad I listened and recommend it highly

Worth the buy.

I kept finding reasons to put my headphones back on and listen to the story. I have always been a Prince fan and Mayte Garcia has given a brief insight of their life in a respectful tone. It can't be easy for a 16 year old to absorb an icon like Prince and their story is of love, loss and life beyond. Well worth a listen.

A wonderful, heartfelt work that honours the memory of Prince

I've been an enthusiastic fan of Prince's work since the mid-80's. with this book, Mayte has put together a truely inspiring story, taking us on the roller coaster ride that was her decade+ long relationship with Prince.
It brought back so many wonderful memories of the Prince concerts & after parties I've attended, including the first time he toured Sydney (with a young Mayte) in the Diamonds and Pearls tour.

I just want to thank Mayte for sharing her heart with us. The world is still grieving the loss of this musical genius and this book helps to salv the wounds left when he left us.

Listening to the audio version, read by Mayte made it alll the more touching.

Thank you Mayte, may God bless you and your most beautiful family.

Exceptional Book!!

Mayte gave an exceptional performance of this wonderful story. It really did feel like it was from the heart, and you felt all her emotions, especially during the unfortunate parts of her life, but even the uplifting moment she finally had the child she so badly wanted. I cried a number of times. Thank you for a wonderful book Mayte.
