Marcia Brady, eldest daughter on television's The Brady Bunch, had it all. But what viewers didn't know about the always sunny, perfect Marcia was that offscreen, her real-life counterpart, Maureen McCormick, was living a very different - and not so wonderful - life. Maureen tells the shocking and inspirational true story of the beloved teen and the woman she became.
Maureen takes us behind the scenes of America's favorite television family. But the real story begins after The Brady Bunch ended. Maureen found herself tangled in a fast-paced, drug-fueled Hollywood existence that ultimately led to the biggest battle of her life.
There is no question: Maureen McCormick is a survivor. Here's the Story is the empowering, engaging, shocking, and emotional tale of Maureen McCormick's courageous struggle over adversity and her lifelong battle to come to terms with the idea of perfection - and herself.
Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick writes and performs this moving memoir about the struggles that have shaped her life beyond the television program that made her a household name.
McCormick is a likable narrator, and her tone is accessibly confidential - listening to her story feels like sitting down with a good friend and getting the whole scoop. She brings a tone of vulnerability to this performance of her own life story, and her thorough, thoughtful self-reflection further introduces an element of raw intensity to this engrossing tell-all audiobook.

Maureen McCormick has a very nice voice - easy to listen to.
She came across as being very sincere
Yes - it really was.
I'll be honest in saying that my primary interest in listening to this book was to hear about her days on the Brady Bunch. I, like a lot of guys back in the 70's, had a big crush on her (or more accurately - a crush on her character). What I didn't expect was how the emotional story of her family life had a grip on me from beginning to end. I found myself walking the dog a little longer and taking longer routes home to maximize my time listening to this book. That's when you know you're listening to a good audiobook. Though she had a huge drug problem and a couple of abortions - somehow I felt like she was still Marcia-like. It's hard to explain that statement - I think you'll have to listen to the book to see if you agree.
