At the one-year anniversary of his death, legendary musician Prince's first wife shares a uniquely intimate, candid, and revelatory look inside the personal and professional life of one of the world's most beloved icons.

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.

    Very touching and got to see how Prince was off stage; I could tell she really loved prince and Mayte really stood by him even through very rough times wow!
  • This book is so lovingly told

    By Divalikeme
    Mayte, has so graciously given us the gift of letting us peak inside the love story of her and Prince. Through the good and the bad it is respectfully told with love as the under current. You could feel the love she had for him coming off the pages. Definitely a page turner and helps us understand this legendary genius of music.
  • Great book and great biography

    I really disliked Prince after this book and found her to be weak and sad.
  • Great read!

    A wonderful and entertaining read about "the most beautiful love story" ever. Mayte and Prince shared a deep kind of connection on so many different levels--most people only get to dream of experiencing something like that during their time here on earth. She did a fabulous job of sharing "their story". Thank you for sharing your beautiful story with the world. Thank you for your honesty and transparency. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book this much!

    He wanted nothing to do with her for a reason she's not saying. He didn't even want to talk to her. Why didn't Joaquin Cortes wasn't in it you lair!!!
  • Great read!

    Some moments I laughed, some I cried. Mayte told this story in a raw, heartfelt way. Although her story is very different from my own (and anyone's for that matter) I can't help but connect some how. Great read and well worth $$!

    Mayte you are an 😇🙏🏻! This book is so eloquently written. Your love and memories of your husband is such a gift to his adoring fans. My administration for you both is to the moon..I lost my son Beau when he was 4 months old, so I felt exactly how you felt when it happened. I love the quote in the book,"If you don't say they are gone, they will come back" Thank you for that gift.❤️❤️❤️😇😇
