Sometimes it is such a pleasant escape to lose yourself in an easy work of fiction. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks ("The Notebook," "Message in a Bottle") is that kind of book. It tells of the romance between Travis and Gabby, of love found and nearly lost, and the difficult choice that Travis must make. It is a book of hope, and holding on to faith when all seems lost. Any romantic at heart will enjoy this book. Spending time with it is a very pleasant way to spend a day.
