Since her first appearance on screen in Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews has played a series of memorable roles, but she has never told the story of her life before fame, until now. In Home: A Memoir of My Early Years, Julie takes her readers on a journey from a difficult upbringing in war-torn Britain to the brink of international stardom in America. 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.
