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.


  • 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.

  • 💜A Magical & Loving Story....All From The Heart!

    By Anneland
    I've been a die-hard lover of Prince's music for over 20 years now...Mayte's book brought tears to my eyes at times & heart exploding experiences of joy at other times...her gorgeous voice makes you feel like you are on the phone with her as she shares her incredible Life Stories. Her insights and experiences ALL come from a place of Love; I feel privileged to experience this personal – but never exploitive on ANY level – insight on the multi-talented & amazing human-being-Man that Prince was. Thank you Ms. Mayte, your strength and compassion and passion are inspirational...thank you for sharing your Love Story with all of us. Namaste 💜
  • Amazingly honest and bittersweet

    By Shakira without the Sha
    I was skeptical at first - afraid this was just an attempt to make $$ after the death of Prince - but it was actually a beautiful surprise. I've loved Prince forever but never knew that much about him. This takes you behind the scenes - for better or worse - of the very private sides of Prince. The bittersweet part - when I finished the book it hit me all of a sudden (again) that he really is gone - but the music is forever.
  • Beautiful Read

    A Most Beautiful Read...... I just finished reading The Most Beautiful and I have to say that it was an incredible read. Mayte takes you on a journey that is both fascinating and insightful but at the same time very emotional. I literally couldn't put the book down. I've read two other books on Prince but they deal with his career more so than anything else and while interesting, they didn't really shed any light on his personality. This book does! From start to finish, it is a beautiful read and I was surprised at how much I was drawn into the story. Even for the reader who isn't a diehard fan but perhaps wants to get a glimpse at how Prince operated and thought through things,this book is a great read. I wish it had gone on for longer, but I'll take what I can get. Excellent stuff!!

    This book made me laugh, cry, and feel hopeful for the life God has in store for us all. She tells an amazing story of her one true love, all of her tragic losses, and teaches empowerment to every woman who has been in a similar situation as her. Mayte, you really are The Most Beautiful. Thank you for sharing your story.
