It was still dark when the jangle of the phone next to the sofa startled Suzanne Randolph awake.

About Safe Haven


So when she learns that President Roosevelt has invited nearly a thousand European refugees to come to America while WWII still rages across the Atlantic, she’s confident she’s found her story. She heads for the shores of Lake Ontario to Oswego, New York, determined to make her journalistic mark, but is there more to life than restoring her career?


Throughout the war, Theo has suffered the taunts and insults of others—first because of his family’s German heritage and then because of his pacifist Quaker beliefs. Now his parents have sent him to Oswego to find his uncle, aunt, and cousin, and bring them back to the family farm in Wisconsin. Little does Theo realize the journey will last eighteen long months and test the faith and resolve of this humble farmer.

And when there’s an undeniable spark between Suzanne and Theo, could it be God’s plan for these two determined individuals to achieve even greater things if they work together?
