Overview

While actor Willie Aames (Eight Is Enough, Charles in Charge) was at the peak of Hollywood success, his future wife, Maylo Upton, was a teenage runaway, eating out of trash bins and living on the streets to escape the sexual crimes of her cult-ruined mother’s barbaric boyfriend. By the time Willie met Maylo, his star was falling because of sex, drugs, rock and roll, and family problems while her acting career was starting to rise. Together, they found God and got their messy lives clean, but the ghosts from their gritty past would duly roughen the road to victory.

Grace Is Enough is their fascinating insider story of fame and infamy, spiritual regrets and renewal, and the ultimate realization that with God all things are possible. It will appeal to and greatly inspire everyone from pop culture fans to the traditional Christian nonfiction reader.

Endorsements

"If you think this is just another Hollywood tell-all book, think again. This story is so much more; it will shock you, but most importantly, it will give you hope and remind us all that God is alive and still in the miracle business."
Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey, radio hosts, The Rick & Bubba Show

“Willie and Maylo's honesty make this book a heartfelt read. It is inspiring to see a couple so devoted to each other and to their faith.”
Lori Loughlin, television actress, Full House
  
"A fascinating true story that could only emerge from Hollywood. Grace Is Enough is honest, riveting, and unfolds in a compelling way that only a real-life drama can."
Tom Russo, president, Intermedia Television and former vice president of development, Paramount Pictures
  
"Grace Is Enough offers an unflinching portrayal of both the grimmest of human nature and the most extraordinary of the human spirit. Willie and Maylo's story is an emotionally brutal one made utterly compelling by uncovering hope and dignity within the midst of fame, greed, lust, excess, and ultimate betrayal. The candid account of these two lives is both touching and disturbing, but in the end, one of the most remarkable and inspiring stories I have ever read."
Chris Maul, Grammnet Productions

“Willie and Maylo have been the main characters in their own exciting, action-filled, suspenseful, dramatic and sometimes tragic life story. Their devotion to God and to one another inspires us to reach past the pain and the obstacles in our own lives in order to come to the place where we can agree with them . . . grace is enough.”       
Kathy Troccoli, singer, speaker, and author

    An Excellent Book!

    I bought 'Grace Is Enough' almost four months ago and really enjoyed it. From the moment I began reading this book, I felt as if I couldn't stop reading it once I started. 'Grace Is Enough' is such an honest, interesting, and inspiring book that anyone who reads it won't be able to put it down because there are so many exciting twists and turns in this biography.

    Grace Is Enough

    I loved this book. I finished it in under two days. Not only did I get all the dirt on some of my favorite stars, but I was shocked at how much Willie Aames has been through and the love story between him and wife was truly inspiring. I gave the book to the my sister and she read it in just a couple of days too. An easy to read, juicy and fun book. Anyone would like this.
