I recently read this 2010 novel by Nicholas Sparks, one of my favorite authors.
It is about Katie, a mysterious woman who suddenly moves to a small town in North Carolina. There are lots of questions surrounding her.
Why is she here? What did she leave? Why is she all alone?
She slowly builds new relationships, with her somewhat strange neighbor Jo, the storeowner Alex, two young children, but she won't let anybody in on her big secret.
The novel treats the theme of domestic abuse, and it does so in a way that we are pulled into the story, and towards the end, you won't be able to put down the book, just as it usually is with Nicholas Sparks' books.
The novel is part of my "Mount TBR Reading Challenge".
