Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks
(Grand Central Publishing, 2010, 340 pages)
I am the kind of person who will read a certain author as long as that author is willing to write books for me 🙂 Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors, but THIS book totally shocked me with the last chapter. Safe Haven tells the tale of a woman who has been brutally abused by her husband. She finally manages to escape to a remote cottage in a small coastal town where she meets people who change her life and give her reason to love again. Unfortunately, her husband manages to locate her. The page turning suspense made me want to finish the book before I could turn in for the night. A 1 a.m. type of book!
Yes, a very typical Nicholas Sparks story, but this time, he actually made be blurt out “NO WAY'” at the end and I was flipping back through the pages to check it out. Most certainly, this book will keep the reader’s attention, but now that you know the ending is amazing, you are actually going to have to read the entire book to understand the ending, so don’t bother skipping – you will need it all 🙂
