I adored Amy Winehouse, her music, her style and her overall individuality which I think even to this day no-one can replicate. I was incredibly saddened when I heard the news she passed away.
Amy, My Daughter is a heartfelt, honest but overall an incredibly sad book. Whilst I knew the outcome the impending doom was obvious from the first few pages, and I am not sure there was ever another outcome for Amy.
I think it was brave of Mitch Winehouse to write such an honest book detailing Amy and more so her families struggle with her addictive personality. As you read you can't help but feel for those close to her because they were so helpless.
As someone who has never experienced addition or had anyone close to me struggle it really is eye opening and this book I'm sure will give solace many people who find themselves in similar situations. Amy's passing & indeed anyone's needless death at the age of 27 in nothing short of tragic . Amy Winehouse will always be regarded by me as one of British music's most talented & innovative Stars.
