We Happy Few by Aren A. Morris
As part of the city’s war effort, Polly Tremblay decides to train and work as a welder at the Halifax Shipyards. Affirmed by her work, Polly’s journey toward personal and professional independence begins. Soon, Victory in Europe is declared and Halifax erupts into riotous chaos - along with Polly’s future. Navigating the V.-E. Day mobs, Polly searches for her mother, the courage to forge her own path, and the soul of the city she adores.

Inspired by the real-life Halifax Five (a group of wartime female welders from across Nova Scotia), Aren A. Morris shares the provocative story of an exceptional young woman torn between being true to herself or the expectations of others. At its heart, We Happy Few is about women's work and pleasure, and who gets to decide what that is.

--- Aren A. Morris is a Halifax-based educator and theatre maker. While this is Aren’s debut novel, her other works and endeavors (including creativity retreats, children’s theatre, and collaborations with local artists) have inspired audiences for years. She pulls her inspiration from: stories that stick with her, her former students and time spent in nature with her husband and two children.---
