In more than two decades in the limelight, Louise Redknapp has weathered her fair share of ups and downs, but through it all she's remained unapologetically true to herself. From dancing in her bedroom as a young girl with big dreams to getting a scholarship to Italia Conti and experiencing her first taste of musical success with Eternal, to navigating fertility struggles, motherhood and rediscovering her passion for performing, in You've Got This Louise offers a refreshingly honest perspective on the experiences that have shaped her. Warm, funny and wise - like a chat with a close friend - this empowering and uplifting guide weaves together Louise's personal stories and poignant observations on life to gently reassure and encourage, while providing tips and advice on how to get the most out of life by embracing positivity.
Louise Redknapp’s memoir isn’t a particularly groundbreaking story but a nice, interesting journey, with an honest but respectful history of her childhood, early days with Eternal, marriage to Jamie, and everything that came after that. There were some weird bits at the end of each chapter, where it felt like it was going to be wisdom, but then it also seemed like a bit of an interview, but it wasn’t clear whether Louise was asking or answering the questions or both. I thought maybe they would be skippable, but then there were some great interesting pearls in there very occasionally, which only made it more frustrating. Overall a good read though.
