Summary (From the publisher):

Written during World War II and its immediate aftermath, the eighteen stories of The Women on the Wall move from women to war and back again, but it is the women who remain central. There are Alma, a war bride who runs a farm better than the neighborhood men; Lucy, a former WAAF, working through college; Tamsen, who keeps her husband drunk so she can do as she pleases, and the women on the wall, who, with nothing to do but wait for their husbands to return from the war, find their private consolations.
