Bobby Brown and Richie Blue: A Spiritual Memoir tells the story of a set of twins and their unique perspective on life. The book discusses topics ranging from the pre-and post-Vatican II church and religious life, urban life in the 1950s, the antinomies between two ethnic groups: the Italians and the Slovaks, and the psyche of twins. Each chapter concludes with a section called "Counting Our Blessings," in which the authors reflect upon the spiritual lessons they have learned throughout their lives. Despite challenges during childhood, the twins depended on each other for emotional survival and learned to trust in God at an early age.
