Trapp Family

Today we take a look at an all time favorite. A real classic:
"The Sound of Music".
I discovered this little paperback in a second hand store
and it really surprised me to learn that the characters in
the classic movie are based on real people. The movie
script is also based on a real-life story. Moreover, here is
the heroine herself narrating her story in the first person.
Her name is Maria Augusta Trapp and, through 380 pages
she takes us on a journey from the Tirol to Salzburg to
Vienna and across the mountains to the Italian border.
I have learned that Maria's name was really Maria and
she was indeed cloistered in an Abbey when she was sent
on a special assignment to help the widower navy captain
von Trapp. If you know the story, you'd love the extra
details splahed all across this book.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
