The destructive relationship between Blake Fielder-Civil and Amy Winehouse consistently made headlines around the world but no one knows the truth of what really happened between the couple better than Blake s mother, Georgette. In this powerful new book, she reveals the truth of the events leading up to the award-winning, soul singer s untimely death and the impact it had on her son and family. The drug and drink fuelled lifestyle of Amy and Blake was well documented by the world s media and it seemed that their volatile and precarious relationship could only ever end in tragedy. When the unthinkable happened and his ex-wife died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 Blake was publically vilified and held accountable by the press, even though the couple had by then been living separate lives for some time. He has continued to battle his personal demons ever since. Letting Blake Go is a moving account of a mother s desperation as her son journeys towards self-destruction and she has to face the day when she must finally let him go for good.
