Andrews recounts both her personal and professional life up until her time in The Sound of Music.

Interesting memoir. Pretty much what you would expect from Julie Andrews - refined, polished, gracious. I was impressed with how very hard she worked to become the star that she did. Talented, without a doubt - but no overnight success by any means!! I also found surprising her sad, dysfunctional childhood. Particularly in an era when it was all supposed to be "Ozzie & Harriet". Telling the truth of her childhood could not have been easy for her!

The sweetheart of Broadway and the cinema provides wonderful insight into the early life and career of this great lady. I look forward to the next book with great anticipation.
