Book Synopsis

In a small North Carolina town, a mysterious and beautiful woman running from her past slowly falls for a kind-hearted store owner . . . until dark secrets begin to threaten her new life.
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 empathetic 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.

  • Heart wrenching

    By Lbj6363
    Cried twice. An awesome book.
  • Great beach read

    By Janie's Library
    Someone who rated this book a 1 said it was “predictable.” It was relatively predictable that the two main characters would become involved. However, this book was anything but predictable. Occurrences in the plot were quite surprising and remained surprising to the end. Enjoyed it very much.
  • Tear jerker

    By lkkfjfjr
    Such a great book. I couldn’t put it down. Grab some tissues.
  • Terrific love story, terrific thriller!

    By ES the horror fan
    The Guardian is an even better thriller from the same author, but fans of Nicholas Sparks will love this book! I know what I’m talking about because I’m a fan, even though this is one of only five books I’ve read by the author! The love story is the kind of sweet, touching romance you would expect from Nicholas Sparks and, as a thriller, it’s very suspenseful, building to quite a frightening climax! Highly recommended! A pleasure to read!
  • Great Story Teller - Horrible story line

    By Very Happy Apple Customer
    Ugh, a tough read, but might be a bad experience that can produce a better attitude toward those who suffer this kind of life. Needed the ending.
  • Good book

  • Never Ending Love

    By Lakewaco
    Great mystery and love story. You’ll laugh, you’ll tear up, you’ll smile and you won’t be able to wait for an end you didn’t expect, but you’ll love it.

    I loved it. Gripping story

    Long and boring. So predictable. A classic sleeping with the enemy story copied. Sad and depressing. Wish I had my $2.99 back!!
