World War II has ended and Laird Nordstrom is returning from a Germany in ruins. As he steps off the train into the small South Dakota town he left three years ago, he's haunted by memories of his horrendous war-time experiences in Europe. His home town is apparently unchanged, yet it seems strangely unfamiliar. He confronts difficulties in reestablishing the relationship with his fiancÚ, Jan; he discovers that his old girl friend, Diane, is now a war widow; and is surprised to find that Jan's younger sister, Carla, is all grown up. This story is a salute to all those men and women who struggled with relationships during and after the long absences of the World War II years and to the supportive small town communities who welcomed them home.

About the Author:

The author calls Love Is Like Ice Cream a love letter to her family and the small town communities in which she and her husband grew up.  JoAnne, along with her husband, George, who served in the army during and just after World War II, both grew up in Dakota small towns during the pre-war years. It is a time and place they know well. JoAnne and her husband, George, live in Portland, Oregon. They have four sons, two daughters-in-law, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

Review:

Love Is Like Ice Cream is a joy-filled story which draws the reader into the lives of the inhabitants of a small mid-western town as they welcome the boys home from World War II. The many memorable characters lived with me for days after I'd finished reading the book and I found myself wishing for a sequel so that I could find out what happens to them next!
