As moving as his bestselling works of fiction, Nicholas Sparks’ unique memoir, written with his brother, chronicles the life-affirming journey of two brothers bound by memories, both humorous and tragic.

In January 2003, Nicholas Sparks and his brother, Micah, set off on a three-week trip around the globe. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at thirty-seven and thirty-eight respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. Against the backdrop of the wonders of the world and often overtaken by their feelings, daredevil Micah and the more serious, introspective Nicholas recalled their rambunctious childhood adventures and the tragedies that tested their faith. And in the process, they discovered startling truths about loss, love, and hope.

Narrated with irrepressible humor and rare candor, Three Weeks with My Brother reminds us to embrace life with all its uncertainties … and most of all, to cherish the joyful times, both small and momentous, and the wonderful people who make them possible.

    " I reall enjoyed this book. While Nicholas and Micah Sparks were traveling with each other they would remember stories for their childhood. It nice to see how authors are sometimes not as different as the person next door. I think this book for me akes me be greatful for family "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 1/9/2014

    " I wasn't sure if I would enjoy reading Nicholas Sparks memoir, so I kept pushing it further down my stack of books. Bad choice. I really enjoyed reading about the trip his brother and him took around the world. After reading about his tragic life, I can know see where he gets so much of the emotion and depth of his novels. Should have read this one sooner. "

    " This is the only book that I have ever read by Nicholas Sparks . I did enjoy the book and I think that I would love to take a trip as her did with his brother. The book showed me that you can do amazing things and that you do not have to come from wealth to have it all....... Your family is what matters at the end of the day and nothing else. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Harlee | 4/24/2011
