Safe Haven
    2017-April-5  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    《爱情避风港》

    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 journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis* of Southport. A little help from Jo gets her started with basic trust and a special friendship. The neighbor also tries to play matchmaker for the two main characters. With Jo’s empathic and stubborn support, Katie finally 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. Told from several characters’ points of view, the story is full of suspense, with an amazing ending. Author Nicholas Sparks is a master of telling love stories, whose many books are New York Times best-sellers.

    The book is available at online bookstores such as jd.com.
