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. The
civil rights movement was the foundation of her growth, the
Woodstock era the backdrop of her love with Carlos. The
couple was drawn indelibly together by a search for truth
and spirituality, but while yearning to be filled with
God’s light, they were pulled dangerously toward a
manipulative cult. They eventually disengage themselves
from the guru and reclaim control of their lives, putting
their love for each other before the cult’s increasingly
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.
