Title & Author needed for a fiction book set in an ice age.

I'm looking for the title/author of a book. I think I read the book in the late 70s/early 80s. There might've been a war on or due to the end of the world, the military was the main focus. Glaciers were moving at a rapid rate across the earth, to the point that people were being frozen in walls of ice as they passed. The protagonist might've been a woman and she was having a relationship with a man who might've been in the military.

It wasn't full-out sci-fi, but the setting was pretty post-apocalyptic. I can't even remember if it was any good, but not knowing has always bugged me, and I remember really liking the setting. That's all I can remember without guessing.

Your description reminds me of Anna Kavran's Ice, at least in terms of content and specific scenes. Its writing style and atmosphere would probably be something you'd remember too, if it's the right book.

The Snow by Adam Roberts?

One of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover books, maybe?

Ice. That was it. Thanks!
The Snow sounds similar and I'll definitely hunt that down.
I forgot about the Darkover series, so that must mean it's time to re-read them.
Thanks all!
