The Highest Dream

From the jacket

When Lisa Somers becomes a tour guide at the United Nations, she is following her desire to escape from the shadow of her father's fame as a radio commentator in Washington, D. C., and find herself as an individual.

In New York there are the problems of a fascinating new job where she learns to know girls of many nations. Falling in love is to play no part in Lisa's immediate plans, but from the time when Norman Bond of the UN radio department "crashes" her tour, she finds herself more interested than she wants to be. There is already a girl in Norman's life-Reland Munro, a gentle, unhappy Scotch-Irish girl with a tragic past.

Against the background of the UN, Lisa works out her personal problems and finds as well a larger goal than she had expected. The Highest Dream provides a behind-the-scenes view of the United Nations as that vast organization is seen by those who are a working part of it.
