Get your own signed copy of Space Between The Stars by Deborah Santana.

– Deborah Santana is best known for her marriage to music icon Carlos
Santana–a thirty-year bond that endures to this day. But as a girl growing up in
San Francisco in the 1960s, daughter of a white mother and a black father–the
legendary blues guitarist Saunders King–her life was charged with its own drama
long before she married.In this beautiful, haunting memoir, Deborah Santana
shares for the first time her early experiences with racial intolerance, her
romantic involvement with musician Sly Stone and the suffering she endured in
that relationship, and her adventures in the freewheeling 1960s. Yet it is her
spiritual awakening that is the core of this story.

Space Between the Stars is a moving account of self-discovery,
rendered in raw, beautiful prose, by a woman whose heart has remained pure even
in times of despair. As Deborah Santana talks frankly about her lifelong fight
against racial injustice and her deep-seated loyalty to her family, ultimately
it is the struggle to remain a spiritual and artistic force in her own right, in
the shadow of one of the world’s most revered musicians, that shines through as
her most indomitable pursuit.

“Tightly crafted, colorfully written, and surprisingly honest…[The] reader
can’t help but speed through ther pages.”-San Josey Mercury News
