    On June 5, 2002, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. She was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life.

    It should make anyone cry that people in this world do what they did to ms. smart what they did and also would do what they did to a child at the same time ms. smart has the strength to recover from it. that should bring a smile to anyone with faith and courage.


    Any additional comments?

    The young lady has strength and courage that most people only dream of. The fact that she made it through it alive is a miracle of God.

    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.
