About this item

"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.

Does anyone else see the similarity between "New Haven" and Julia Roberts' movie, "Sleeping With The Enemy"? The typical story, a young woman falls in love with the man of her dreams only to find out that he is controlling, manipulative and abusive. In the movie, Julia Roberts fakes her own death. In the book, Katie/Erin leaves without a trace. What's more, her husband is a police detective. In both works, both women have to continuously look over their shoulders yet at the end, they find their own Prince Charming. Mr. Sparks, I think you must have watched "Sleeping With The Enemy" a few nights before you began writing "Safe Haven". Even though a few elements are different, like the children, the story is still the same. The whole thime I was reading your book, I kept thinking that I've heard this tale before. So, Readers, if you don't have time to read this latest novel, just watch Julia Roberts! It's all the same. I am from the town that this story is set in and I was really left disappointed.

I didn't find it at all boring,as some others claimed it was. Although i will say it is not my favorite Nicholas Sparks book,but i found it very intriguing and the ending had an interesting twist that i would have never guessed (and I usually have the end all figured out.) It diffinitely kept me on my toes! Over all it is another great book by Nichaoas Sparks.
