With nearly 1,500 Broadway performances, six Tony Awards, more than three million albums sold, and five Academy Awards, The Sound of Music, based on the lives of Maria, the baron, and their singing children, is as familiar to most of us as our own family history. But much about the real-life woman and her family was left untold. Here, Baroness Maria Augusta Trapp tells in her own beautiful, simple words the extraordinary story of her romance with the baron, their escape from Nazi-occupied Austria, and their life in America. Now with photographs from the original edition.… (lisätietoja)

Though many know the story told in the popular musical & movie The Sound of Music, most probably don't know the true story behind it. This is the book that inspired Rodgers and Hammerstein to write the musical, and there are some similarities, but also some large differences. The book also goes on to cover the Trapp Family's lives in America after they fled Europe, an event which takes place within the first 40% of the book.

Overall, I found it fascinating to read about the true story behind a movie I watched so very many times all through my childhood, and plenty since then, too, even leading my own daughter to fall in love with it. It is very easy to read and follow what is going on. I enjoyed the times the author tells about her halting English in a way that seems very real, even while the entire book is in English. I love the way the family works together in all things, not just their singing career, each one using their talents where they can be most useful. I also appreciate the author's instinct to attribute everything to the will of God, doing quite a few things she didn't really want to do, because she had good reason to believe God wanted her to. I should add that I don't agree with, and at times even understand the need for, some of the theology the author believes in, but the foundational beliefs of trusting in God for every aspect of one's life is important.

We can find a word of caution for our own lives in these pages, as the family watched Hitler come to power and take over their country years before WWII started. The children were told at school that their parents were "nice, old-fashioned people who don't understand the new Party," and that they shouldn't tell their parents what they learned at school. This is beginning to happen to some degree today as well, with some areas wanting to cut parents completely out of the decision-making for what goes on at schools. Once they start trying to keep what the kids are learning at school secret from the parents, it should be a huge red flag!

The book did feel like it dragged a bit in the 2nd half, though I can't quite put my finger on why. It may have simply been that the story of how the family's concert career grew and they bought their farm wasn't as interesting to me as the rest. Overall, though, I'm glad I read this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the movie and wants to know the true story or anyone interested in memoirs about life during and after WWII (especially from those who are from countries directly affected by the war).

This book brought to life all the best bits of the film "The Sound of Music" whilst removing the added for film aspects, for instance the Baron was not a hard unloving character and although the Princess told Maria that the Baron was in love with her it was not done in a nasty way like it was in the film by the Baroness.

It was great to read all about the family's life in America especially the amusing stories of Maria learning to speak English. As you read more and more it is hard not to get the feeling that this would be a very good family to belong to.

The family achieved so much, their Singing is just one part of all they accomplished. I hope the essence of what Georg and Maria began has continued within the family even if the singing has not. This is ultimately a family who are their for each other and support each other through thick and thin, very rear in the modern world.

This was a book I truly found difficult to put down. ( )

Like almost everybody, I grew up with The Sound of Music. I don't remember when I learned that it was based on a true story, but I have had this book on my book bucket list since I was young.

Maria's voice was refreshing. She's a straight talker, and I felt less like I was reading a memoir and more like I was sharing a cup of tea with her over the kitchen table.

I was completely charmed by the book, and by Maria, and the entire Trapp family. ( )

Mostly a good account of the real story behind the Sound of Music family. The father was not distant and emotionally aloof like the movie. The kids names were different (there was a younger Maria too).
They did not leave Austria right after the concert and climb any mountain to get away. There were 3 more kids after their marriage too.

Great Christian family story. Takes them to their move to Vermont during the War. Quite religious too in a Roman Catholic way. Worthwhile to learn the real events. ( )
