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.

Great Content/Poor Narration

I'm a big Toni Braxton fan so I loved the insight she provided regarding her life. The content in the book is great. It kept me listening although the narration was bad.

I would've loved for Toni to narrate the book herself. I listened to another memoir last week that was read by the author and being able to imagine what she went through made it much better because you could hear the emotion. It wasn't the case here.

I initially thought this was being read by a robot and considered not even getting into the book. I'm glad I changed my mind but there was no emotion in the narrator's voice. She is very dull. She also mispronounced quite a few words and took random pauses mid-sentence. It was weird. I can imagine Toni singing certain parts or imitating Tamar's voice but you don't get that here.

Again, it's a wonderful memoir but at this point I will pass on any book narrated by this person.
