About the BookSet amid the austere beauty of the North Carolina coast, this tender and moving love story ("Publishers Weekly") focuses on Travis Parker, a small-town veterinarian who avoids romantic entanglements until Gabby Holland enters his life.
Book SynopsisOpposites 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?
