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?

    "I really enjoyed it!"
    Where does The Choice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As far as contemporary novels go, I would say my top 10


    What other book might you compare The Choice to and why?

    Me before You by Jojo Moyes. I has the same sense of foreboding, you don't know what is going to happen.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could rename The Choice, what would you call it?

    How far for love


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved Travis' character and his personality. Towards the last half, I was like 'oh no! What's going on here???' I did freak out a little when they were hinting at certain things, and i almost didn't want to finish it, but i pushed through it and I'm glad I did. The ending tied up everything so perfectly and I love how they made it aware that Travis forgave himself for 'the choice' and for the events that led up to it.

    "Painfully boring."

    Listening to this book almost wrecked the pool time at a fabulous Cabo resort. Boring & Slow. I have never fast forwarded so many seconds.

    "Sparks is AMAZING as always"

    I haven't read a Nicholas Sparks book that doesn't hold me captive to the very last word and of course he didn't disappoint this time! The Choice is emotionally real and at times gut wrenching, the characters are believable; someone you'd enjoy meeting and hanging out with. I'm sure I will read it many times again.

    "Faith, Hope, Passion and Hope once again"

    This story is everything I had hoped would have happened in my life... That the love of my life would be healed and wake up. He did not. No happy ending there...

    I can say I am deeply grateful for the intense and passionate love we shared...
