In this New York Times bestseller, follow the author of The Notebook as he travels the world with his brother learning about faith, loss, connection, and hope.

As moving as his bestselling works of fiction, 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 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, and including personal photos, 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.

  • Nick's Back Story

    By ServeHim
    I first came across Nicholas Sparks several years ago when I read "The Notebook". I truly enjoyed his writing. My little sister gave me this book. We came from a family of two brothers and one sister. Our Mom and Dad have also both passed from cancer. We are blessed that we all love each love each other. We do miss our parents everyday, but we look forward to seeing them again someday in heaven. We also lived in California as kids. So I related to some of his story. It was a very good book regardless of any similarities. I have also recommended this book to a dear friend who has been working with an autistic child. Thanks so much for a terrific novel!
  • Very inspiring read

    By STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My 14 year old son read this as an 8th grade English assignment and encouraged me to read it. As a busy Mom, I wondered how I would make the time to do so, and I'm so glad I did! Aside from an interesting travelogue, I most enjoyed the life lessons that the author relayed in a very heartwarming, folksy manner. I have taken time to reevaluate my own family relationships and priorities because of his book. I thoroughly recommend this!
  • Such a powerful read

    By CCandiLoves
    Read this novel in high school. My English teacher gave us a list of books to pick from and I'm so glad that I picked this one. Such a powerful book, of their lives. Reading that they were the only survivors of their family is such a hard pill to swallow. Great read.
  • Great book to start with out of the collection

    By SarahMicheal
    This was the very first NS book I ever picked up. It was 08/09 and of course I had seen many of the movies that had been made from his books but had absolutely no idea who he was. It was a good first read. I felt I really got to know the author. And it really made me want to read his other books. I was hooked. And now consider myself a huge fan.

    This was definitely the best of many great books written by Nicholas Sparks and his brother. It gives such a background that relates to the other books I want to go read them again.
