I finished reading Maria's book last week, and decided to come back and look over this.
When I first reviewed it I said how well it slotted in, but having read the book, I didn't know how right I was.
Loved the nods to the letter and the book, and how the latter made something click in her mind. Additionally, the way you wrote this, slightly different from your other stories is so reminiscent of Maria's book it's almost perfect.

I love this story. When I was growing up, I read the book, the Story of the Trapp Family Singers; thus, this family is already dear to my heart. I look forward to reading the other fanfics in this universe. I'm delighted that a writer remembers the Family von Trapp and is keeping their story alive.

What a truly perfect mixture of the reality and the movie's storyline. I will admit in the very beginning I thought it might clash too much but pretty soon you had me won over believing every word as exactly what it is: the perfect balance between reality and the film.

Really sweet. I am currently reading Maria's book, and this seems it would fit in perfectly.

VERY WELL WRITTEN! Absolutely enjoyed it! Slightly different from the movie but still great!

Loved this! I may be wrong, but I think this is the first story you've done which is written in the first person!? Really original and clever idea though! I liked how you divided up the real story with your own, it made it even more enjoyable to read. Seriously hoping you have another wonderful story up your sleeve which we will see very soon. Please? Great job on this one! :) x

I thought this was beautifully written, and even though I'm never really keen on reading or writing first person narratives, I did like this. I have found it relatively difficult to connect with your stories since "Arrangement" and "One Week in Paris" because of the sheer force of emotions you dealt with in them, but this has brought me back - although that's not to say, in any way, that I have enjoyed any of your other stories since less. You write in a way that suits the characters perfectly, and it's always so refreshing to read and learn from. A fantastic piece of writing, and I can't wait to read any of your future projects.

This is one of your very best stories. You were able to take a small piece of the true story and weave into a magnificant piece of emotion. You told a very real story of how it could have happened.

this was such an interesting idea for a story! I am more a fan of the movie Maria and Georg, but this story made the book come alive for me. It also made me think about why the movie and play couldn't make Georg such a nice guy - the conflict is part of what makes a 3 hour movie or play come alive - Christopher Plummer insisted on giving the character more edge saying that even the stage Georg was made of cardboard. I loved Georg in your story, but three hours of such a sweet guy would have made for a very different story. Anyway, loved this idea and loved the story, thanks.

aaw fabulous. I love how you expressed Maria's uncertainty and emotions and how Georg comforted her and was willing to let her go if that was what she wanted. It was cool how you mixed the elements of the real Maria. Very sweet. Don't really know what else to say except loved it.
