Set amid the austere beauty of the North Carolina coast, Nicholas Sparks tells the story of Travis Parker, a small-town veterinarian who's perfectly content with the active and exciting life he leads. Since he uses his spare time bungee jumping and swimming with the dolphins, he can't shake the belief that a woman would simply slow him down. That is, until Gabby Holland enters his life.
Gabby, Travis's new neighbor, is in love with her boyfriend of three years, and wants nothing more than to start planning the wedding she's always dreamed about. However, there is a story within a story and the connection between Travis and Gabby is just a beginning. As their tale unfolds, their relationship becomes something different--with much higher stakes. With echoes of THE NOTE BOOK abound, listeners everywhere will fall in love.
The bestselling author of THE NOTEBOOK delivers another touching romance about love and destiny in THE CHOICE. Travis Parker was happily enjoying his bachelor's life until it was disrupted by his new next-door neighbor, Gabby Holland. Travis is instantly drawn to her, despite her boyfriend and aloof manner. The two begin a rocky relationship that rolls on for years, until an expected event leaves them at a crossroads. Nicholas Sparks is one of only two writers to have both paperback and hardback novels on the New York Times Bestseller list for over a year. (The other is HARRY POTTER creator J.K. Rowling.)
