*Natalie Cole is currently working on a memoir that will detail the months surrounding her successful kidney transplant that took place on the same day her sister Cookie died of cancer.

Publisher Simon & Schuster announced Monday that the book, “Love Brought Me Back,” is due in November with collaboration from David Ritz, who helped with memoirs by Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye.

Cole, who suffers from hepatitis C and had been undergoing kidney dialysis three times a week, was with her dying sister in May 2009 when she received a call from doctors saying a kidney was available from a donor and she should head to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles immediately for transplant surgery.

Cookie died while Natalie was having her operation.
