Imagine your father died before you could know him. Add to that, that almost all you have are news stories and articles to know anything about him; that all you've had to hold near your heart are scattered photos, only one of him and you; that people tell you repeatedly how much you look like, and remind them of, him; that what you basically know of him is the near-mythic Southern tale, that he was an ultra-talented rock star lost so young in a motorcycle accident, just as his career was taking off, and thereafter became iconic for Southern rock 'n roll and dying young.
Duane Allman's daughter, smart as a whip, driven and artistic like her dad, started like this and decided to discover the man, the father, to know him, by talking to and getting to know family and his friends. Out of her journey comes her lovely, loving serenade, by which any human can sense through her lilt, her heart, her sadness and joy and her self-discovery.
A beautiful book read, as it should be, by the author.
