In an instant, young Danny Logan fell in love with a girl and a career. Only one was faithful.

Growing up on the streets of Hartford, Connecticut's South End in the tumultuous 1960's was a challenge in itself. For Logan, it meant having sharp wits, rock solid values and pride. But when he meets a girl who captures his heart with a single glance, he is torn between the neighborhood he knows - the place where he belongs - and a world of wealth beyond his dreams in a mansion at Fenwick on the shores of Long Island Sound.

When disloyalty crushes his fantasy, he finds a new life as a newspaperman covering the violence and divisiveness of racial unrest in the City and the bloody Vietnam conflict. His journey as a reporter and editor takes him through the headlines that mark the worst of the 60's and 70's, and harden him to the harsh realities of a new world.
