Review by: Good Story Press on July 19, 2013 :
"Summer Day" is an engaging novel that would appeal to fans of writers like Wendell Berry. Frank Parker's fluid prose and keen understanding of his characters combine to create a narrative that is easy to dive into and difficult to put down until the final scene is finished.
