I am picking this book for a couple reasons--last month, Life of Pi was the largest turn out since I took over book club, and Im hoping since Safe Haven is also a movie, that we can get a few of the ladies that have seen the move (And maybe havent read the book) to join us--
When we left Brio, we saw that VERY cool round table, outside that surrended the fire pit--lets sit there--so, limited amount of ladies--remember to get your Free Brio card for FREE food--
Something about the book
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.
Hope to see you there
