  Booklist Review

Travis Parker is an easygoing man with steadfast friends from grade school, living on the North Carolina coast, enjoying his job as veterinarian, and finding relaxation through surfing, boating, and breathing in nature's bounty from his deck. He has reached the age of 32 with no steady girlfriend or the desire for one much to the consternation of his friends' wives and his family and then he meets his prickly new neighbor, Gabby. Her beautiful collie is pregnant and, certain that Travis' dog is responsible, she marches next door with mayhem on her mind. But when she discovers that he's the vet and that his dog has been neutered, she figures it will be years before she can face him again. Except that Travis works his way into her life despite her boyfriend. Then tragedy strikes, and Travis is forced to make a choice that will haunt him. Sparks is a master at creating beautiful, old-fashioned courtships coupled with bittersweet dilemmas, and this is no exception, as it pulls the reader into the story just as The Notebook (1996) did. Once again, Sparks presents a complex and captivating contemporary romance that will satisfy his many fans.--Engelmann, Patty Copyright 2007 Booklist
Summary
In this deeply moving #1 New York Times bestseller, Nicholas Sparks turns his unrivaled talents to a tale about love found and lost, and the choices we hope we'll never have to make. <br> <br> 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.<br> <br> 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?
