Three Weeks with My Brother is two stories in one. On the surface, it tells of a trip around the world that Nicholas Sparks takes with his brother Micah. Three Weeks with My Brother begins on the day that Nicholas Sparks receives the flier in the mail and ends with the brothers returning home. In between, Nicholas Sparks recounts the sights, sounds, and spectacles of various countries and continents, taking the reader on the journey with him. But Three Weeks with My Brother is more than just a travelogue. The text is the memoir of a successful author who seemingly is living the American Dream. Yet unbeknownst to most of his readers, he has also lived the American Tragedy. The story follows two brothers and their journey to becoming the best husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and friends that they can be. Three Weeks with My Brother is a no-holds-barred memoir that shares the good, the bad, and the ugly that made Nicholas Sparks the man he is today.
