The follow-up to 2008's acclaimed memoir Home, Julie Andrews shares career highlights, personal experiences and reflective insights that have contributed to her enchanting legacy.

Starting in 1963 where Home left off, Julie Andrews recalls her break-out roles in The Sound of Music and as the title character in Mary Poppins before divulging many of the intimate details from her later years, spanning the 1960s until the early 1990s.

In the 1960s Julie starred in three films that were the biggest money-makers yet for each studio: The Sound of Music (20th Century Fox), Mary Poppins (Disney) and Thoroughly Modern Millie (Universal). She was described by the Hollywood Reporter as 'the object of the most intense and sustained love affairs between moviegoers and a star in the history of motion pictures'. Beginning with Julie's account of the immortal roles of Mary Poppins and Maria von Trapp, we learn about her personal experiences of motherhood, along with the unfortunate demise of her marriage to costume and set designer Tony Walton, and her second marriage to the love of her life, renowned Hollywood director Blake Edwards. From here Andrews shares with us her ascent to a timeless stardom as she went on to perform in various films, Broadway shows, television specials and her own self-titled television sitcom.

This is the story in her own words of how Julie Andrews became one of our most beloved entertainers, the winner of multiple awards including Grammys, Emmys, Golden Globes and an Academy Award.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is magic ... Andrews is far too polite to exploit her catalogue of hurts, but some moments really sting - SUNDAY TIMES

This book is several dozen cuts above the usual showbiz memoir. I eagerly await the next instalment - SUNDAY EXPRESS
