Bonnie said, "I listened to the audio version of Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks (and Micah Sparks) while driving to and from work, 25 miles each way. It was wonderful traveling along with them to so many exciting places around the world, so I'm suggesting this book for all of us booking around the world."
As moving as his bestselling works of fiction (like The Notebook and Message in a Bottle), Nicholas Sparks's 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 world. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at 37 and 38 respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. As Nicholas and Micah travel the globe, the intimate story of their family unfolds in the details of the untimely deaths of their parents and only sister. Against the backdrop of the wonders of the world, the Sparks brothers band together to heal, to remember, and to learn to live life to the fullest.
The book takes them (and us) to the almost mythical sites of Guatemala's Mayan ruins, Peru's Incan temples at Machu Picchu, Easter Island, the killing fields in Cambodia, the Taj Mahal, and Ethiopian rock cathedrals.
