Description of the book
Poppy’s life has never been easy. Becoming a mum at sixteen, falling out with her family, and being abandoned by her boyfriend has left her feeling lost and alone, but her son is a ray of light in her life, and the pair form a strong bond: it’s the two of them against the world. Many years later, with her son grown up and away at university, Poppy arrives desperate, exhausted, and half-starved to a pretty doorstep, hoping to find sanctuary in the home of her old school friend Harriet—and it is clear things have gone horribly wrong. Finding Harriet living with her sister Jessica and nephew Reef, Poppy soon settles into a comfortable life in their rural village, helping Harriet in her delightful fabric shop, and believing the sisters have offered her a way to start again with a clean slate. But as the hardships she has fled catch up with her and cracks in the sisters' strange relationship begin to show, Poppy is suspicious of Harriet’s true motivations for helping her and fears her only option will be to flee once again. With bonds between the three women tested to breaking point and dark secrets revealed, will Poppy find safety and happiness, or has she simply fled one nightmare to end up in another? No Safe Haven is a twisty tale of friendship, family, and loyalty in a world where everyone has something to hide.
