    In January 2003, Nick 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 35 and 36, respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. As Nick and Micah travel the globe, the intimate story of their tragic family legacy unfolds in the details of the untimely deaths of their parents and only sister.

    Overall

    The most compelling journey the Sparks brothers take you on is not the one around the world. Instead, as we accompany Nick and Micah back in time, they gradually reveal the world they saw as normal when children. It is a world of youthful exuberance, set alongside the pain of a father's emotional distance and an adored mother's attempt to teach her 3 children life's lessons. Laughter and tears comingle as the brothers recount their escapades and the nearly unbearable grief they endured within and alongside their family. I want my own grown sons to read this book. Nick and Micah recall and relate to each other their childhood stories in the same way, I suppose, that all close siblings do. While each son is different, their shared experiences forge a common bond that endures life's harshest moments. As the book ends you finally realize why the trip around the world wasn't nearly as important as the time spent away and together.
