A love story, several love stories, dreams of him, her husband to be, she dreams. A young lady in the 1940s with irritable bowel syndrome wanting kissed, needs enemas. She gets used to them. Gentle enemas ease her discomfort, make her feel good, are pleasant, desirable. Something not talked about in polite society, something she wants to talk about, share how good she feels, share her feelings with the boy she loves. Relaxed, she opens-up about her most hidden feelings under a big oak in the park during her first picnic with her boyfriend in high school. The next day she is little-miss-red-ears, when he comes to see her. She is in bed with a cold and is having enemas as part of her treatment, and he knows!
The book is a novel, a saga, a love story of two sisters, their family and their lovers. They suffer the racial prejudice and experiences of 1940s. There is a lynching of a good man, murders of bad men, a World War II hero, a scientist with Ashberger's syndrome, and family---loving family. When the Jonquils Bloom Again is set in South Carolina, a college town; and Pennsylvania, a mill town, with a mother who teaches Sunday school and one father who is an Polish Gypsy, another who is a lead man in the plant, and another who is a Chiropractor---and villains much higher placed in society and members of the Klan. Slices-of-life before and after both World Wars. The use of corporal correction during that period is covered, both the good and bad. Done right pain can teach. Done wrong it can harm---it's a simple as most people think---and complicated enough to require some understanding of neurology and physiology to fully understand.
The book is moral, two swear words in the entire book, enemas clinically given by nurses, an aunt, a mother and a husband. Only one fully sexual scene is a wedding night, two virgins teaching each other, one having spent weeks reading up on what he is supposed to do, the other having been taught to do whatever he tells her to do once ...
