In 1957, the Banning family leads a life of privilege,
wealth, and domestic unhappiness. At the head of this
California dynasty is oil magnate Victor Banning, a man of
great power and even greater obsessions who is determined
to teach his son and grandsons to be predators in his dog-
Jimmy Peyton is a rising star in the music business, a
young man with a bright future and no connection to the
Bannings, until the fateful night their cars collide on a
Los Angeles street, forever changing the lives and future
of two innocent families.
Laurel Peyton, Jimmy's daughter, has lived her entire life
in the shadow of grief. Though her mother, Kathryn,
struggled to keep her daughter safe and secluded after the
terrible accident that ruined their family, she cannot
guard against the one danger she never expected: love.
In 1970, Victor's grandsons, Jud and Cale, meet the
beautiful and spirited Laurel, and these two families
cross paths once again, this time on a passionate course
that pits brother against brother and mother against
daughter, a clash of wills that gradually draws them all
closer to the truth of their tragic connection.
Spanning thirty years and three generations of Peyton
women and Banning men, The Days of Summer is an epic drama
that explores our deepest ties to family, the mistakes we
make in the name of love, and is a reminder of our ability
to hope, to forgive, and to find the courage to change.
