The journey of a young Widower raising 2 very young children alone. He loves them so fiercely, he always worries he needs to be more. He still loves and misses the wife he lost 2 years ago.
It's also about a woman with a very harsh, violent, and brutal past. She wants to feel safe, but doesn't think she ever can. She has been running from her past. She's changed her appearance and found a beautiful little town she's afraid to call home. Trust won't be easy for her. From a small distance, he watches her interact with his daughter, and is caught off guard with how this affects his heart. He wants to talk with her, but senses he could easily scare this woman away. His instincts are very good at understanding her fragile nature, but he also knows she has a strength he admires. A little help from her neighbour gets her started with basic trust and a special friendship. Her neighbor also tries to play matchmaker for the 2 main characters.
This story takes you to very dark places. It's not just heartache or loss, or the usual things in a love story. There is also true suspense, very different journeys in life, and the story is told from several character's points of view. I think it's told in such a way, you will stay up all night, as I did to follow these characters stories till the very last page. The ending is incredible. How nice to find a story about love where you think it's your typical walk in the sunset together....The End. There are Sunsets, but the ending was just so amazing. Read this book!
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."

From the very first moment that I began reading this book I could not put it down. I really appreciate the way Mr. Sparks simplifies his characters without putting too much into their emotions. He lets his readers embrace what his characters are feeling without forcing their emotions onto us. This author really has a knack for stripping his characters' souls bare and giving them the finest qualities, while still keeping them human; faults and all.
If you ever want a well-rounded book, that is not rushed, has a beginning, middle and end that is not two days of seriously unbelievable action packed...then this is definitely the book for you.
If you love this book....then you will like all his other books. This man is the greatest thing since sliced bread!
SPOILER ALERT: I wish that more of the story would have unfolded to say that KATIE would have been able to become ERIN again, that those who knew what Kevin was doing to her would have come clean, that Erin could have talked to the old neighbors about what happened with Katie's documents etc. I wanted more closure, other than, Kevin is dead, let's all live happily ever after. The whole JO part was a little odd. While it was nice that Carly went by Jo, and that was a part I wasn't expecting, that fact that she imagined Jo to be having all these conversations with her, eating with her, though never touching her food, even yelling at her (in her own subconscious mind) was a bit of a stretch for me. BUT, it was a decent story, but definitely enjoyed other Sparks novels better!
"We all forget things. That's what reminding is for." Quote from Marvin, from the movie.
Just not impressed with the book. Storyline is way too close to the above movie. Too predictable.
