Amy Winehouse's handwritten notes published in Dad's book

Amy Winehouse's father is sharing a treasure trove of touching handwritten notes from the tragic singer with fans by publishing them in his upcoming book.

Mitch Winehouse will release Amy, My Daughter later this month (Jun12), and he's including a number of personal letters the Rehab hitmaker sent to her dad while she was away from her native Britain.

Editors at the New York Post have been given a glimpse at one message, sent on Valentine's Day in 2003, while she was recording her debut album Frank in Miami, Florida.

In the letter, she wrote, "Dear Daddy, I love you so much and can't wait to see you again in a few weeks.

"I'm working, and I haven't spent a penny. A few thousand dollars have gone, but no pennies as such. I'm joking."

The Grammy-winning star died in July, 2011 as a result of her heavy alcohol consumption.
