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.

"Attempting to escape her dark past, Katie starts her life over in a small North Carolina town. She gets a job as a waitress and finds a quaint place to call home. Even though she's reluctant to socialize with anyone in town, she finds herself opening up to her neighbor, Jo, and to a single father, Alex. Rebecca Lowman expresses Katie's emotions and vocally ignites Sparks's signature writing in a way that won't disappoint his fans. She's just as precise when portraying Alex, Jo, and Katie's husband, Kevin. It's easy to distinguish between each character as she expressively voices timid Katie, outspoken Jo, understanding Alex, and angry Kevin. D.Z. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
