Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Better than Message in a Bottle"

    The only other Nicholas Sparks book I've read is Message in a Bottle and I hated the ending. This book didn't have the horrible ending that one did. It was a little predictable, but a good listen.

    "Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book"

    This was one of those books I couldn't stop listening to. I looked forward to getting in the car to hear what would happen next. I also started taking my iphone when I walked the dog just to hear more. The narrarator was great and the book had a nice twist at the end.

    "The first Nicholas Sparks novel I read"

    And I loved it. Rebecca Lowman was perfect as narrator. I could immerse myself in her world. Great character development and plot. Would recommend.

    I listened to this one with my 17 year old daughter on a road trip. We both enjoyed it. Would recommend.

    "Shallow, 2 dimensional"

    This book is overly sweet with characters that have absolute characteristics. Dialog seems forced. Predictable.
