Publisher's Summary

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: a woman who fought a lonely struggle against the controlling and often bizarre behavior of her emotionally inaccessible husband.
Toni Tennille: A Memoir is a visceral account of Toni Tennille's life from her childhood in the segregated South to her thrilling rise to fame in the world of pop music to where she is now: no longer one-half of a famed couple but a stronger woman for all she has experienced - both the good and the bad. Toni hopes that her story will help anyone who feels trapped in a toxic relationship realize that it is never too late to break away from it.


What the Critics Say

"Thick with a Southern affect, [Tennille's] narration is as candid and raw as it is warmly honest. Her voicing, not surprisingly, is excellent and moving." (AudioFile)

Having been very young when their music was popular, I vaguely remember the Captain and Tennille. I do not believe I will forget Toni Tennille now. Her story was earnest and gracious. Being a southern woman, her need to please and facilitate happiness are achingly familiar. Her story telling manner is straight forward and highly compelling. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Loved it for several reasons

I chose to listen to this book because I came from a very difficult marriage with someone who I believe never loved me even though I tried and tried. I thought I could get some closer listening to Toni's story. And I did!! But I also enjoyed hearing about her childhood and career! Toni is an amazingly talented and strong woman. I throughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to fans and survivors of strenuous marriages and relationships. I'm so glad she is happy now, just like me!!
