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.
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?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Yet another Nicholas Sparks love story that’s perfect for a movie adaptation, The Choice explores the dilemmas that can pull a couple apart…or bond them forever. When neighbors Gabby and Travis fall in love, their world becomes perfect, until a tragedy forces them to prove the depth of their feelings with a gut-wrenching decision. A nuanced exploration of love and marriage, this novel left us teary-eyed but hopeful.
In his 13th book, bestselling Sparks (At First Sight, etc.) limns the far-reaching implications of several seemingly ordinary choices made by Beaufort, N.C. veterinarian Travis Parker and his next-door neighbor Gabrielle Holland, a physician's assistant and recent arrival. After an inauspicious first meeting where Gabby accuses Travis's boxer of impregnating her purebred collie, the two fall hard for each other. Already dating someone else seriously, Gabby is faced with a dilemma: whether to stick with longtime boyfriend Kevin, or get involved with Travis. The first part of the tale paints a vivid picture of her decision-making process and its effects on Travis and Gabby's lives. That sets up Part II, which takes place 11 years later when Travis faces a life and death decision following a car accident. A tender and moving love story and a quick read, Sparks's latest does not disappoint.

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!
Definitely don’t watch the movie. This book was wonderful and well written. I loved it.
Reading this book is a smart choice for romance fans!
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!
