The novel, Connor’s War is based in the Vietnam era about a 15 year old boy who faces being shipped off the remotest part of the Kansas flat land. “How do leave all you friends from a sophisticated San Francisco area High School and even being a Navy brat, this exile to the flat-lands will not have a good outcome” asks Greg. Greg weaves the story around the fact that Connor, the protagonist, has a father who is a US Navy Commander who is shot down in Vietnam and is missing-in-action, whose fate is unknown and a young boy whose Mother as a US Navy Officer in Nursing is transferred to Japan for her medical expertise. Is Connor safe traveling alone on a passenger train to a small town in Kansas? Connor headed into the unknown to live with an unknown grandfather, who is a circuit court judge.
This novel addresses some common issues that teenagers face such as separation anxiety, death and young love, problems, which are a common issue amongst military families. Greg said “I wrote the book because I felt there weren’t enough young adult male books that dealt with real life controversies.”
