Product Details


“Readers, prepare to meet the real Maria, a complex and compelling leading lady who will both delight and surprise all who feel they already know the story of the fabled von Trapp family. Michelle Moran has delivered a gem of a novel, rich in historic detail, page-turning pacing, and lyrical, lush storytelling. As immersive, heartbreaking, and ultimately redemptive as the musical for which Maria von Trapp is so widely known and loved, this one is not to be missed. Brava!”—Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of Finding Margaret Fuller

“In Maria, Michelle Moran has revealed a fresh view of a beloved family’s story, the glamorous world of 1950s New York, and a fascinating peek behind the curtain of the writing and production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s masterpiece The Sound of Music. It’s pure delight from start to finish.”—Erika Robuck, nationally bestselling author of Sisters of Night and Fog

“For anyone who loved The Sound of Music, and I am one, Michelle Moran’s beautifully drawn portrait of Maria von Trapp will add multiple dimensions to your understanding of the beloved classic. With meticulous research and a fine sense of style, Maria evokes the real miracle of the incredible singing von Trapp family, and it brings their story vividly to life. Getting to know the real woman behind the beloved story will only make you love her more.”—Elizabeth Letts, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Finding Dorothy

Maria looks at a well-known story with fresh eyes. Alternating between the life and experiences of beloved heroine Maria von Trapp in the 1940s and the perils of adapting her story for the silver screen years later, Moran adds new dimensions to a story that has captivated hearts and minds for decades. Heartwarming, earnest, and endlessly fascinating, the hills truly do come alive with the sound of music in this deftly crafted tale.”—Aimie K. Runyan, bestselling author of The Memory of Lavender and Sage

“Michelle Moran is back! In Maria, Moran makes a triumphant return in offering readers a captivating and fast-paced journey through the life of Maria von Trapp. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon, this novel is a must-read for fans of The Sound of Music, presenting a fresh perspective of a legendary figure. It’s also a clever book, going meta by illuminating the musical’s creative choices, thereby exploring the interplay between history and historical fiction.”—Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author of My Dear Hamilton and Becoming Madam Secretary
