First published in 1958 and then turned into a film of the same name in 1959 featuring Troy Donahue, Sandra Dee, Dorothy McGuire and Richard Egan, this classic romance is available for the first time in ebook format. 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-each with children. Had they met too late? 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This novel is a criticism of the values of the 1950's and many the values of which still exist today. It shows how love between young people can often be subject to approval based upon the social class that they belong to. The novel deals with social classes, teenage sexuality, adultery,, and divorce. The book was written in the 1950's when despite the fact that all these were widespread they were not spoken or talked about. In the fantasy perfect world none of them existed. The novel deals with young love openly and realistically. A good book.
