What it's about:

An affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman's struggle to love again

When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight-knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly, she begins putting down roots, and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. But, dark secrets intrude on her new life with such ferocity that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love.

What the critics said:

"As ever with a [Nicholas] Sparks story, the action takes place in a sugary vision of small-town America that does not correspond with the real world at any point."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


"Long on beauty shots, short on depth and seriously intent on tugging your heartstrings. Indeed, it demands you reach for those tissues. Sob."
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times


"Safe Haven offers an unsurprising but not unsatisfying tour through recognizable Sparkville terrain."
- Justin Chang, Variety
