Meghan never does anything halfway, whether it’s demonstrating against the Vietnam War or falling in love with Dennis Kipphut. But the anti-war protests become personal when Dennis draws a low number in the draft lottery. He is sure to be drafted and sent to Vietnam.
Meghan knows that her father’s connections can keep Dennis safely at home. But Coyle Danahy wants his only child to marry the son of a professional man, not the son of a night watchman. Seeing Dennis drafted seems like a perfect solution to end the relationship. Confident that the situation will play out as he hopes, has Coyle underestimated how far Meghan will go to save the man she loves?
War on Giffort Street is a novella about love: love between parents and their only surviving child; love between a young man and a young woman; and love of country. Although the Danahys are a fictional family, there were thousands of families like them during the turbulent Vietnam era. No matter whose side you are on, what happened to the Danahys will move you.
