KIRKUS REVIEW

A brief glimpse into the career possibility afforded by the United States Foreign Service, and some indication of the crucial political plight of the Middle East are woven into this story of blonde secretary, Norma Balake. Norma's desire to travel leads her, first, to the Washington Foreign Service Institute and then to Ankara where she learns to understand the Turks, helps apprehend a rebel, and where she finally becomes engaged. Routine plotting and characterization do not recommend this as a novel, but there are some interesting facts here for those in search of a career that allows for service and travel.
