About the Book

1965. A teenage romance launched innocently in a small New England town is ruptured by a war thousands of miles away. Told in alternating voices of the two main characters, Mike and Kate face the challenge of their lives when Mike’s tour of Vietnam plants him and his platoon daily in the cross-hairs of danger, severely wounding Mike, and leaving the reader wondering if he will survive or see his first love again. A Summer in Time captures all the longing two lovers feel at being separated by circumstances beyond their control, and the excitement of battle scenes evoked by the author from his own tours of Vietnam.

About the Author

A native of Western Massachusetts, first-time author David Smith captures the turbulence of the Vietnam era in an adventure and romance piece summoning from his own experience as an enlisted soldier in the mid ‘60s and early ‘70s. Smith reentered the U.S. Army as a chaplain 20 years after the story’s period, serving in New Jersey and Germany. He retired from the Vermont Army National Guard in 2003, and currently lives with his wife, Leigh, in St. Albans, Vermont, where he continues contact with many veterans who fought an unpopular war, and who still bear scars from it.
