When the Sparks brothers--bestselling writer Nicholas and his older brother Micah--set off on a trip around the world, they saw it as an opportunity not only to see temples and ruins but to talk about their childhood and the fate of their family, in a fraternal bonding experience that would enlarge both their lives. As they traveled, they also thoroughly discuss their religious orientations: Nicholas is devout, Micah is not. What comes through is the fact that, despite their differences and their troubled childhood, the brothers are staunch friends.
A very heartwarming read. I admire the relationship the author has with his brother. The story they tell of their family is very emotional yet a beautiful story of how close of a family they had and the trials they overcame as a family. This story is a reminder of how thankful every person should be for the family they do have in their lives and how important it is to savor each day like it is the last. You just never know when destiny will take them away at a moment's notice.
