Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks coming to film *Giveaway closed*

I’ll admit it took me some time to finish the book Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks, but I loved it! I love reading books, and I especially love finishing the book before it becomes a movie!

I was beyond excited to hear that Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks was coming to movies! Safe Haven stars Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough as is in theaters February 8, 2013

An affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again, Safe Haven is based on the novel from Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author behind the hit films The Notebook and Dear John.

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 terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love in this deeply moving romantic thriller.

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.

Check out the trailer for the new film
