The intimate, inside story of the ultimately tragic life of multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse (“Rehab,” “Back to Black”)  is told by the one person most able to tell it—Amy’s closest advisor, her inspiration, and best friend: her father, Mitch. Amy, My Daughter includes exclusive, never-before-seen photos and paints an open and honest portrait of one of the greatest musical talents of our time.


Mitch Winehouse is Amy's father. He has one book translated in several languages.


REVIEW:
What a powerful read, and at the end, I'm in tears.
As a parent, I couldn't imagine having to bury your child. Adult or not. It is something I know I wouldn't ever get over, so my heart cries for her dad.
This book is from Mitch's point-of-view, and being her dad and best friend, he knew more than anyone.
I remember watching it all unfold in the media, them calling her 'Wino'. Seeing her dad's view really opened my eyes to her situation. She wasn't lost, or even a druggie, though at one point she had to kick drugs. She was a drunk. A fatal drunk. She wanted to be sober, but was caught in a cycle.
Such a sad way to go. Yet, if you look at that '27 club', weren't they all drunks and super talented?!
If you're a fan, read this. You will gain so much respect for her and her dad. More than you already have. If you're not a fan, read it. You probably have some misconceptions about her like I did. Thank the media for that....

5/5

  1. Sounds like a good one. I saw the film about her awhile ago and really felt for her after hearing her story.

  2. Such a shame what she did to herself! It seemed like she just control her addiction.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
