'Requiem for a Wren', set in the years just after World War II, is often regarded as one of Shute's most poignant novels. Fighter pilot Alan Duncan reluctantly returns home to his parent's remote sheep station in Australia after a wartime injury. However, his return home is tainted by the suicide of his parent's parlour maid. The parlour maid is not the woman she pretended to be, however, and Alan is determined to unearth who she truly is.
