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?

    "Not a Wow!"

    The book had a very moving ending but I was not impressed with the love story between Travis and Gabby. It seemed a little cheesy as another reviewer pointed out. However I do think the book was well written and I personally loved the narrator's voice which made it a easy listen.

    "Sad but very moving"

    Maybe I'm just getting sentimental as I get older, but the story of how Travers met Gabi brought back memories of my own which moved me to tears more than once. But be warned it is a sad story, well told with much feeling. Fairly well read but I have heard other readers who are better at character voicing.

    "Great Book!"

    Overall, I would give it 10 stars if not for the voicing of the narrator. I wish he didn't have to mimick a female voice or of a little child and deliberately try to sound like one at all since he is a male reader. It sounds rather comical when the dialogues are serious. It should have been read without delibate reference to a character's gender.
