Love hurts. There is nothing as painful as heartbreak. But in order to learn to love again, you must learn to trust again. 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.

5.0 Darker less sappy Sparks = Excellent
Opening line:“As Katie wound her way among the tables, a breeze from the Atlantic rippled through her hair. Wow, this is definitely one of the better Sparks books I’ve read, I sure hope he keeps going in this darker, less sappy direction with the next one too. I picked up SAFE HAVEN during a ...

5.0 Bezpieczna przystań
Wspaniała książka. Aż brak słów by to opisać. Powieść trzyma w napięciu od pierwszych stron, aż po ostatnią kartkę, wciąż zaskakuje czytelnika i we mnie wzbudziła mnóstwo emocji. Po raz pierwszy odczuwałam tak silną nienawiść wobec jednej z postaci w książce, zapominając, że jest to tylko postać wyk...
