Synopsis

Thoroughbreds is the second book of the Angela Bishop trilogy, where she continues to take up the lifelong ambition of her idealistic twin brother, who was killed in Vietnam. Throughout the story she wrestles with an overwhelming sense of destiny as she struggles against Otto Schroeder, falls in love with a draft dodger and winds up on the state political scene. Angela decides to run for political office, partly so she can oppose Otto's plan, who among other things, is trying to push a bill to stop President Carter's mandate to give amnesty to draft dodgers. As with the rest of the trilogy, Thoroughbreds is written in the tradition of a carefully detailed plot, drawn out sparingly in a sensitive, internal monologue. The book expresses a sense of destiny that many people have, and who would enjoy reading about someone who begins to experience its fulfillment. Although this book stands alone outside the trilogy, characters from the other two books live in this story, and oh yes...a few horses.
