This was an excellent memoir. I usually only sneak about 2-3 memoirs in per year, but I am never unsatisfied--they are usually people in theatre back in the 40s or 50s. After readin, I love to watch the movies I have starring them. This book is actually very well written, and with Mrs. Andrews being British, a very formal account. She did have a fairly 'squeaky-clean' image her entire life, and still calls the monarchy of Britain, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, depicting the era she grew up in. This is not only a tale about Julie's talent for singing starting at an early age, but also the story of her family life and the war. In just over 300 pages, I easily finished this in a week. The book reads easy and as a good writer will, she left "cliff hangers" at the end of every chapter, making the reader tell themselves, "well, just one more for tonight won't hurt!"
