Opposites attract in this moving #1 New York Times bestseller of love lost and found between a medical student and the man who captures her heart.

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 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?

    I agree with anyone who believes that this book should have been an instant classic! A heart-wrenching love story that romance readers, especially Sparks’ fans, will remember, probably for the rest of their lives!

    I give it 4.5 stars yes the first few chapters are slow and not really entertaining but then BOOM you go on an emotional roller coaster with ironic twists. I loved this book!

    This book was a great read, I loved the story and all of the characters. Only complaint is that Part two went a little slow and it didn't keep my attention as much as Part one but I still loved the book.

    Of course Sparks does it again! Every time I read one of his books I'm left sitting on the couch, crying as if I was five years old and someone just took away my favorite toy. Every time he leaves you feeling as if your hearts been ripped out of your chest cleaned off and put back in. But let's be honest, if we know this happens every time why do we go back to it. It gives us a sense of hope that one day we will find our Noah,Dawson or Landon.
