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?

Don't waste your credit!

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narration was the redemption of the hours wasted.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyance that I wasted a credit. Although the narration was very good, it just couldn't redeem the story.

Awesome Story! When you find your soul mate, nothing else holds a candle to it! Nothing else matters! Time nor distance can ever change how you feel about each other! Travis had to make the choice he made!

Did not pull me in to the pages

This was selected at my annual book club meeting. Didn't grab me. The title was a good fit.

Easy read love story.

This book definitely pulled at your heart strings. Easy read, lovable characters, classic Sparks novel. A little too unrealistic for my medical background. But it definitely didn't stop me from wanting to finish it.

Good book. Hated the music.

The music was really distracting for me. I've never had an audio book with music. It was weird for me.

  • Overall

dull and predictable plot

narrator's southern accent disappeared somewhe somewhere in the middle of the book. story goes so slow. inaccurate or implausible portrayal of someone coming out of an extended and deep coma from a tbi. I know how it is ...my daughter and other patients suffers from it and it does not end in a fairy tale. fiction, after all. not investing in Nicholas Sparks again.
