I really enjoyed this memoir about Andrew's life growing up in WWII, her trials coming from a broken home, secrets later revealed, etc. Like many people I had assumed that Julie Andrews came from a well-to-do background. She didn't. I also liked that Julie while forthcoming was also decent in her depiction of her family's flaws. And I fell in love a bit with her Dad. He did his best to stay in her life as much as possible after her parent's divorce. When she talked about him calling her Chick I kept hearing my own Dad call me Peanut.

A warm, moving, and often humorous journey from a difficult upbringing in war-torn Britain to the brink of international stardom in America. Her memoir begins in 1935, when Julie was born to an aspiring vaudevillian mother and a teacher father, and takes readers to 1962, when Walt Disney himself saw her on Broadway and cast her as the world's most famous nanny.

Along the way, she weathered the London Blitz of World War II; her parents' painful divorce; her mother's turbulent second marriage to Canadian tenor Ted Andrews, and a childhood spent on radio, in music halls, and giving concert performances all over England. Julie's professional career began at the age of twelve, and in 1948 she became the youngest solo performer ever to participate in a Royal Command Performance before the Queen. When only eighteen, she left home for the United States to make her Broadway debut in The Boy Friend, and thus began her meteoric rise to stardom.

Home is filled with numerous anecdotes, including stories of performing in My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison on Broadway and in the West End, and in Camelot with Richard Burton on Broadway; her first marriage to famed set and costume designer Tony Walton, culminating with the birth of their daughter, Emma; and the call from Hollywood and what lay beyond.

I really think I would happily listen to Julie Andrews read the dictionary, which was part of the reason I took this up; but it was such a delightful book. Being of a certain age, I had never given too much thought to Julie Andrews's early work - to me, it was always Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, and The Princess Diaries (and isn't that enough for anyone?). But what an interesting, sometimes sad, sometimes hilarious, life she has led! ( )

Lovely story by a classy woman. Julie Andrews was always a favorite of my mom's, so when this came out I wanted to read it because I was curious about that time period. I learned so much about vaudeville and theater, albeit from one person's perspective. ( )

It was an enjoyable read about the famous Julie Andrews. The autobiography of her early years seem to mirror Ms. Andrews from what I've seen, although I'm not a huge follower and really only know her through her most famous or recent roles, ie "Mary Poppins", her voice work in the "Shrek" and "Despicable Me" films.

It's a mostly pleasant memoir of her early years, and thankfully she doesn't fall into the trap of a lot of people: her childhood and youth are interesting to read about. She's also surprisingly funny at times, which was not something I expected, but enjoyed. There are some really creepy parts with her step-father but thankfully it doesn't seem to have gone any further than it had.

I'd recommend it for any fan or anyone who enjoys autobiographies. ( )

Silver tinsel on the ground. / River, streams. A round / water tower. Shining sun / flooding woods and meadows. / Spun gold and steel. Clouds punctuate / the hills and valleys and great / white cliffs of Dover. / Sea and ships. And, crossing over, / my heart soars like this aeorplane, / and I know I'm going home again. -Julie Andrews
