Publisher's Summary

One young woman. Two very different roads. The choice will change everything.

Even as a pregnant, unwed teen in 1974, Sandy Lincoln wanted to do the right thing. But when an ageless woman approached her in a convenience store with a mysterious prophecy and a warning, doing the right thing became even more unclear. She made the best choice she could...and has lived with the consequences.

More than 30 years later, a pregnant teen has come into her life, and Sandy’s long-ago decision has come back to haunt her. The stakes rise quickly, leaving Sandy with split seconds to choose once more. But will her choice decision bring life... or death?

Story good but narration awful

Would you listen to The Choice again? Why?

No, the narration was the worst I have ever heard. It sounded like the narrator was reading to a 3 year old. There was no affectation and he read in a sing song rhythm.

This is a great story.

I like the story's topic and found myself wiping a few tears. The narrator doesn't try to do characterization but has great expression and is easy to listen to..

Disappointed

What disappointed you about The Choice?

I really enjoy good Christian fiction, but after listening to over half of it, and spending a good bit of money, I give up! The narration is awful, and the story is lacking, in my opinion.

Has The Choice turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Heath McClure’s performances?

Never

good story - bad narration.

Any additional comments?

this is a well written thought provoking story which is really let down by the narrator. it was just read not performed, by that I mean there were no voices for the characters to differentiate who was speaking.
the book should have been performed by a female to make it a five star listen.
