If you are in the mood for a good emotional story you should pick up something written by Nicholas Sparks. He is the author of such bestsellers as The Notebook, A Walk To Remember, The Lucky One and A Bend in the Road, just to name a few.
One of my favorite books, which he wrote in 2010, is Safe Haven. It’s the story of Katie, a young woman who relocates to a small town in North Carolina to do all she can to start over with her life.
For those of you who have read books by Sparks before, this one is completely different. The story takes you through the ups and downs of what Katie is feeling as she tries to forget the past and reinvent herself in a positive way. As she focuses on what she wants her future to be, she is careful to not let her guard down after everything that she has gone through. Then she meets Alex and as they get to know each other she begins to trust him. It is at that point that things begin to change for her.
This particular story will keep you guessing to the last page. I would say that Nicholas Sparks put quite a bit of mystery into this novel… and it does not end the way that you think it would. It has many twists that you just don’t expect. - Lynn Koenig, Reference
