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.

Okay, first i'am a guy and i love all sparks' books. i have read the book first when i saw the movie and its totally a poor movie. i don't know...its just really a poor adaptation. for user review who rated 6 and above, they never read the book. i will not spoil any story but every detail in this movie is totally 'wrong'.
For me the book is 9/10. its completely different from other sparks' book. i love it very much, when i read half of it (200pages), i just can't stop till the end and trying to guess who is gonna die (an ending like sparks always provide all to you). but in the end. bad guess.
I will recommend for all of you to read the book but not watch the movie. time wasting and not better than other romantic movie.
