Singer Natalie Cole is set to reveal all about her successful kidney transplant operation and the tragic death of her sister in an upcoming memoir. The Grammy Award-winning jazz singer is teaming up with author David Ritz, who helped Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye to pen memoirs, for a new book, entitled "Love Brought Me Back".

The 60-year-old star, who has struggled with kidney disease, will chronicle the transplant that saved her life on May 20, 2009, and the the death of her sister Cookie, which tragically occurred the very day she had the operation. She will also will hare memories of her father, late crooner Nat 'King' Cole. The book is due to hit shelves in November.

Natalie Cole, who has been singing since she was 5 years old, achieved success in her early career as an R&B star but smoothly changed her repertoire toward a more pop and jazz oriented musical style in the early 1990s.
