Sun on the Water: The Brilliant Life and Tragic Death of my Daughter Kirsty MacColl By Jean MacColl

Jean MacColl tells the life story of her daughter Kirsty MacColl from her childhood through to the fame and success she has in the music business and celebrates her brilliant career. It also mourns her tragic death. Kirsty was killed by a speedboat in Mexican waters while she was on a diving trip with her two young sons in December 2000. Jean tells the heartfelt truth, the shocking story of the elaborate cover-up and gross miscarriage of justice that followed and the on going appeals and campaigning for justice to be done in her name.

Kirsty is best known for her hit records in the 1980’s such as ‘There’s A Guy Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis/ ‘A New England’/ ‘Days’/ and the fantastic Christmas smash hit ‘Fairytale of New York’ with The Pogues.

This is a moving story that will touch your heart. The book is beautifully put together written with a mothers love for her daughter and the pain of losing her in such tragic circumstances.

‘I never ceased to be amazed at the love Kirsty generated during her lifetime, and at how strongly it has continued until the present day’ Jean MacColl.
