    More of a Howdtheydoit? than a Whodunnit? This magical tale will sweep you back to simpler times and envelop you in a warm blanket of nostalgia. At the center of the novel is an ice cream shoppe with mysterious powers. Upon entering, customers are hit with “A Whiff of Waffle Cone” and immediately transported to different periods of their life. Ping-ponging through four generations of rich family history and tender community connections a narrative emerges that threads a message of hope and togetherness unlike any other. And rather than dipping into an expected sugary sweetness, the melange of voices ring honest and true making this a highly respected coming-of-age story you’ll want to revisit again and again.
