I just finished reading Finding My Voice.

I have ruined every page of it with my tears. Every single page is wrinkled with the wetness of my eyes re-living your life with Don and with all of us. I have to tell you though, not all of those tears were sad ones at all. There were tears of joy too over so many wonderfully happy memories you invited us to experience and re-experience with you. It was a very therapeutic experience for me to 'get it all out', both the sad feelings and the hilarious ones that were a part of the life you two experienced while we looked on and enjoyed it so.

'Nita, has the writer's gift for remembering details! The pleasure of reading a good book is in the details. Most of us who love to write have to fight the temptation to move too quickly from the beginning of the story to its end. Good writers don't do that. They take the time to 'flesh out the details in the middle' that makes the story come alive. She did that magnificently! The beauty and power of this book should be more than enough to motivate, prod, urge and prompt her to write another one. Someone once said to me: "Books are bridges!" They certainly are. They can take us from a feeling of ordinariness to a feeling of extra-ordinariness. From sadness to joy. From disillusionment to a place of hope. To create a bridge like that for people is to be a miracle-worker of the highest order. I think her gift of writing can help others to find their voice too.

Format: Paperback
I must confess that I know the writer and her children and quite a few of her extended family members, friends and associates. And I know them all because of my association with her then husband, Don LaFontaine, who performed his vocal artistry on many spots I wrote and produced for television. What I didn't know was that this relationship would be the single lucky reason that I was blessed to know about Nita's book, "Finding my Voice." It boggles my mind how easily I might have missed it had I not been a friend or at least in the industry. I, like everyone who knew Don and Nita, benefited greatly from the spirit of their love, their zest for living and giving and their intention to be a force of good and decency in this world. And yet, nothing could have prepared me for the amazing, inspirational and nurturing way in which Nita brought her life with Don together on the pages of this book. She doesn't weep in despair and self pity about what could have been or how unfair life can be. No. Nita pours her heart and sharp intelligence out in such a way that I was taken on a journey of personal, spiritual evolution. All the life forces of change, conflict and closure that I've ever hoped for from catharsis, Nita rendered eloquently. You might say she shows me the bright side of darkness -- how to take on the deepest kind of loss such that you rise up stronger and more capable than you ever dreamed. With "Finding my Voice" Nita stand us up as pillars of grace in the face of those we've lost and those we fear losing - of the things we've lost and the thing we fear losing -- of the life we have and the life we fear losing. Nita stand us up with grace, serenity and ease. Rudy Gaskins

What a lovely and inspiring story! I was travelling when this book was released and I could not wait so I downloaded it to my kindel and I could not put it down. I laughed, I cried and I felt very close to Don and the LaFontaine family.

It is such a moving and heartfelt tribute to an amazing talent and mostly an extraordinary father and husband. I knew "the voice " as all of us did, but I feel like I got to know and love Don La Fontaine in this book.

How grateful I am to his lovely wife Nita for opening her heart and sharing so much of their personal story that will change, transform and heal so many people.
I know that I plan on sharing it with friends and family as a story of love and moving through grief to grace.

A book full of warmth, wisdom, and faith. Nita Whitaker LaFontaine holds nothing back as she takes us through the depths of the darkest hours on her grief journey. In the process she tells us a love story for the ages. "Finding My Voice" will inspire you and make you want to live your life in brighter colors. It is a quite a feat that a book about the loss of a loved one should ultimately be a tribute to the joy of living!

Format: Kindle Edition
Nita Whitaker LaFontaine's Finding My Voice is an inspiring story of a young singer, wife, mother and servant of God. It is a story of ardent, deep, and unchanging love; and the tragic loss of her beloved husband, the vivacious Don LaFontaine, king of voice-over. Here can be found lasting lessons the reader can learn in strength, endurance, hope, faith, and trust in the Maker of us all, God. Through struggles, grief, dark days and nights, she remained staunch in her belief, which brought her to the realization that she still has a voice.
