Sloan Wilson’s Heartbreaking Classic A SUMMER PLACE Now on eBook
First published in 1958, A SUMMER PLACE was adapted for the screen the following year, featuring Troy Donahue, Sandra Dee, Dorothy McGuire and Richard Egan. Untreed Reads is proud to reintroduce this cherished classic as an eBook.
Ken and Sylvia met twice at the Summer Place.
The first summer they were in their teens. Their intimacy was without love. They’d met too early.
The second summer they shouldn’t have fallen in love…and did. They were in their thirties…married…
Ken and Sylvia decided to break two marriages to make the one they wanted together.
They almost broke a third that hadn’t even started yet. Because Ken’s daughter and Sylvia’s son met at the Summer Place. They were in their teens. For them, it was neither too early nor too late.
This novel is about how marriages are made on earth-and unmade. It is about the price people pay for changing their minds about love.
Born in Norwalk, Connecticut, Wilson graduated from Harvard University in 1942. He served in World War II, serving in the United States Coast Guard, commanding a naval trawler on the Greenland patrol and an army supply ship in the Pacific Ocean.
After the war, Wilson worked as a reporter for Time-Life. His first book, Voyage to Somewhere, was published in 1947 and drew on his wartime experiences. He also published stories in The New Yorker, and worked as a college professor at University at Buffalo, The State University of New York.
Wilson wrote fifteen books, including the best-sellers The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1955) and A SUMMER PLACE (1958), both of which were adapted into motion pictures.
