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 talks about the intense guilt she once felt when she accepted a recording deal that excluded her sisters—a decision that would haunt her for years, tainting her chart-topping success. She speaks honestly about losing everything—twice—and having to pick up the pieces alone.
Always the consummate professional, Toni rebuilt her life only to suffer 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 forty-one 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.
Toni Braxton has won six Grammy Awards and sold more than sixty million records worldwide. Her hit song "Un-break My Heart" still stands as the number two all-time bestselling single by a female recording artist. Currently, she is the star of the WE tv hit reality series Braxton Family Values and the new Lifetime original movie Twist of Faith. Braxton was the first African American woman to play a leading role in a Disney Broadway production when she starred as Belle in Beauty and the Beast, and she has headlined in one of the top ten Las Vegas shows of all time. Toni is a passionate advocate for both Autism Speaks and Lupus L.A.
