No Girls Allowed
This is the first book of a trilogy in which Angela Bishop takes up the lifelong ambition of her idealistic, over-achieving twin brother, who was killed in Vietnam. Throughout the story she wrestles with an overwhelming sense of destiny as she struggles against an adversarial former lover, gets caught up in a Vietnam protest movement, falls in love with a draft dodger, and finally winds up on the national political scene. The central theme revolves around a young co-ed who suddenly finds herself required to deal with a high calling and the sacrifice it demands. Vietnam and politics are used as a framework to portray the heroin's struggle to become self-actualized, coming out from under the shadow of her brother. 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 believe they have and who would enjoy reading about someone who begins to experience its fulfillment.
