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?

    "Nicholas Sparks does it again!"

    I loved every moment of this novel. It was both funny and heartwarming. Holter Graham's narration kept me engaged the entire time.

    Story
    "We all dream of having a Travis"

    Of course it's Nicholas Sparks so it's going to be a fantastic love story and well written. That's goes without saying. I will be honest sometimes I tend not to want to read the ones that are made into movies, but I'm so glad I got this one. I haven't seen the movie yet but I think I will now. This story sucks you in right away. A timeless love story of falling in love at an unexpected time to dealing with unexpected trials during a marriage... This may be one of my favorite Sparks novels so far.

    "Wonderful story of love!"

    The Choice is a beautiful story of finding love and holding on to it. I love all Nicholas Sparks books and recommend this book to anyone who loves his books as well. The narrator pulls you in quickly and makes it hard to put the 'book' down.

    Story
    "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.
