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!!

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.

Cut The Music

The book was great I got lost a few times with the back and forth but it was easy to catch up. My only issue that dang music throughout the book it was so distracting and bordered on irritating at times. Future summaries should state that there are musical inserts so that the reader can decide in advance if they want to choose a specific book.
