Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton
Writing Style: Mild first person candid.
Pacing: Lyrical Moving.
Personal Highlights: It was amazing how much of a page-turner Toni’s story turned out to be, though in a lyrical moving way. Honest at the core it became hard to put this book down. Like ‘Breathe Again’ she shares her religious upbringing, her ‘Joe Jackson’-like mother, her relationships and health issues, career highlights and financial meltdowns…and more…in this woodsy heartbreaking voice. Her background, particularly her educational pursuits…and reading between the lines, her $600K personality, really surprised me. Overall, most charitable of Toni’s lyrical story was her description of how music fulfilled her… ‘like an unscratchable itch relieved.’ Beautiful.
