Synopsis

Born Countess Marie Therese von Degenfeld-Schonburg, growing up as the beloved only daughter of a mother and aunt in one of the most beautiful castles in Bavaria, Neubeuern, Maria throws aside the protocols and expectations of the German aristocracy to marry an American diplomat. Born in 1908 and dying in 2005, Maria's life spanned the 20th century, two world wars, and encompassed life on four continents. Her eclectic education included personal correspondence and instruction from poet, Hugo v Hofmanstahl, instilling an ability to write openly and frankly whatever was on her heart. Her experiences with the major events of her century, her philosophy and views on volunteer service, the church, and other issues make this book an unusual picture of a 20th century life.
