Readers of all faiths and from all walks of life will be able to identify with how Eileen and Harry were put together for one glorious reason, God's "crazy love" for them. And, readers will enjoy every moment of Eileen and Harry's courtship and marriage as they journey with the couple "in sickness and in health."
Leamy fills Crazy Love with such humor and wisdom, that even when she is detailing the more somber episodes of her life with Harry, the reader will smile. This is a happy book, a joyous book. You should read this book.
However, I had some issues with the book, she begins her story with this prayer list to God of a husband. She then moves into many coincidences that she attributes as God working this out between her and Harry. She was certain that this was her future husband. She correlates and attributes signs, like red roses given to her as the Virgin Mary, yet another confirmation from God. The book has a cultic glorification of the Catholic Church and its relics.
I found it ironic that Jennifer (Harry's daughter) the initiator of the relationship would protest highly of their planned marriage, and even at the beginning, how Harry really showed Eileen little interest for a long time. It appeared that Eileen did the pursuing and not Harry.
From the detailed accounts of Eileen's life, she sounded like a hurting person who was desperately searching for love and security. She fell in love with Harry, long before Harry professed his love for her. They married in January of 2004, and a few short years later, Harry is diagnosed with leukemia.
This is when the book really becomes interesting and soul searching; the love between Eileen and Harry blossoms during the long battle with cancer. As the book progresses, you can only feel the tenderness grow between them. Harry dies in July of 2008, so for those short few years they develop a deep relationship with God. I believe it was then their faith soared, and the story became encouragingly beautiful.
