Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good read if you loved the movie Sound of Music A very nice account of what the real life Maria experienced. I was hooked after the first page as I kept thinking of the movie and the music. Note a lot of what happened in reality was quite different than the movie and discovering the differences and similarities was part of the fun. Overall a very enjoyable read written by Maria in her very own simple honest words.
