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 feaful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport.

Nicholas Sparks is such a good author that I always expect to be enthralled. I wasn't let down. I feel that every book he writes just gets better and better. All of his books have some kind of tragedy in them. This one happens to be Katie's past, and it's pretty scary. There were times during the book that my mouth was literally hanging open. I laughed, cried, and cheered in the end of this book.
The main character of this book is Katie Feldman. She keeps a very low profile and tries to blend in to the small town she moves to. You can just tell how fragile she is. Overtime she develops more of a personality and you can get to know how strong, brave, and courageous. She is easily one of my favorite characters from any book I've ever read, and not just because we share the same name.
Overall this book it one of my favorites by Nicholas Sparks. It leaves you thinking and pondering the plot, baffled by what happened, and victorious about the overall ending. This book taught me a lesson about what it really means to survive and it makes me wonder if I could survive in Katie's position. If you haven't read Safe Haven, pick it up today.
