"When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family. But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her-- a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards-- and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven"--from author's web site.… (more)

Safe Haven By Nicholas Sparks

Set in a small North Carolina town Alex is a widow with two young children. He is a store owner, trying to raise his children without his wife. Katie is new to town, mysterious, likable but holding secrets. She forms a friendship with a single woman (Jo) and begins to fall in love with Alex. As their love grows, her secrets begin to surface, challenging everything she thought she knew about herself.

A fantastic original story moving at a fast pace. With well developed (likable) characters, engaging dialog, attention to detail, I was brought into Katie's world. I was able to feel the raw emotions , engrossed from the first page up until the satisfying end. I highly recommend Safe Haven to all. ( )
