The Choice

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Publisher's Summary

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the appealing redhead seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him...and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Despite himself, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither could have foreseen.

Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage, and family, The Choice ultimately confronts us with the most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

    "Simply wonderful"

    Sparks never ceases to amaze me with his ability to connect the smallest details to become the bigger picture. The narration was good, somehow giving me a visual clarity with just the right tone. Loved it!!

    "Awesome Sauce!!!"

    First time Sparks reader...

    This listen is heartfelt romance at its best.
    I am currently at time of listening to this audio studying bio-medical ethics and my assigned paper to write is on autonomy. Wow! Just beautiful I felt as if I were a fly on the wall taking in every scene.
    Nicholas Sparks thumb up on this one and looking forward to the next read...any suggestions?

    "Music?"

    This book was absolutely amazing!
    The only issue I had was that on some of the chapters the started it off with music and ended some of them with music .... After the first chapter I was side tracked by it, kinda thrown off. I didn't like the music to start more than the beginning of the book or to end the book..

    "Inspiring"

    I enjoyed this real love. This love connection is what every person who has ever dreamed of calling I'm love wants. This is a love and life worth fighting for.
