The Call of The Wrens by Jenni L. Walsh

Two women, two wars…one an orphan, one a privileged woman.

What do they have in common? 

They both wanted to join the WRENS - Women’s Royal Navy Service.

We meet Marion in 1914 as she enters an orphanage, and finally feels at home because she made a friend - Eddie. 

We meet Evelyn in 1940 who has been sheltered all her life because of a health issue.

We learn of the lives of both women as they struggle through their youth, and make the decision that they want to serve their country.

I really enjoyed Marion and Eddie’s friendship and the strength of both Marion and Evelyn.

THE CALL OF THE WRENS is an emotional, thoughtful, educational read that pulls you in with Ms. Walsh’s wonderful writing style and story line.

The book flows nicely from one time period to the next.

Historical fiction fans as well as women’s fiction fans will thoroughly enjoy this marvelous book about loyalty and friendships. 

Add it to your will love it too.  5/5
