Beautiful and honest memoirs. I listened to the audiobook version which I think really enhanced their stories.

A retelling of L.M. Montgomery's story of Anne Shirley, an orphan who is accidentally sent to a couple looking to adopt a boy instead.

What a fabulous book. Sheen and Estevez may have left much out or covered much up--but it certainly seems like a deeply personal book, and I feel that if I met either one it would be like meeting up with an old friend. So much for the shallow Hollywood types.

Martin and Emilio share their history of family and their relationship as father and son. Along the way they share both their individual foibles as well as the relational struggles and celebrations. The book came about from the movie Emilio wrote and Martin stars in, The Way, which if you haven't seen do NOW! Martin shares his father's love and sacrifice, his alcoholism, early family struggles, acting timeline, and his love and passion in trying to keep the family near. Emilio shares his acting struggles and youthful mistakes, his mentors, bonding with his dad, and how his life as evolved into living his dream. Along the way each share a loving spiritual depth both individually and as family.
Some of my favorite lines about their family -
You are NOT disposable.
We can't get along without YOU.
Our concept of community is shaped by our family. If you ever get to the Kingdom alone, there is but one question. "Where are the others?" We are so made that we must travel alone, yet we can not do so without community. No one can live our lives for us or carry our inner burdens. We come to know ourselves only through the compassion to others. I may not feel your pain or understand your situation, but I will stay with you so you will never feel alone or forgotten. This is the most basic form of community and the simplest form of love.
