Wrens by Anne V. McGravie, celebrates the independence and courage of seven young women during World War II serving in the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS). Set in 1945 on the eve of victory in Europe, this diverse group of women all struggle with personal feelings about what the end of the war will mean for their futures, and for the freedom and respect they have discovered serving in the Wrens. While wrestling with uncertainty, a sudden crisis forces them to come together to save one of their own. With humor, compassion, and strikingly real characters that touch our hearts, Wrens shines a light on a remarkable group of women who committed themselves to help change the world forever.
