Story of the Trapp Family Singers
Nearly everyone has seen the musical The Sound of Music, which is the most successful musical of all time. The musical comes from the true story of the Trapp family. This book was written by Baroness Maria Augusta Trapp, detailing her arrival at the Trapp house, the months she spent there as a tutor (anxiously awaiting the day when she could return to the nunnery), her romance with the baron, and the family's escape from Nazi-occupied Austria to freedom in America. Read the real story of the woman who brought music back into the life of a grateful family.
