Over the years, #1 New York Times bestseller Nicholas Sparks has enraptured fans with his beautiful and heartrending stories. Now he turns his unrivaled talents to a tale about love found and lost, and the decisions we hope we'll never have to make.
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–boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his close 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 attractive redhead seems to have a grudge against him . . . and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Still, 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 should you go to keep the hope of love alive? From the Compact Disc edition.
