Book Description

“I was born to love you.”

So begins this award-winning, inspiring story of a real-life fairy tale that grew into a parable on the healing power of love. This tender tribute is the true story of two people who had given up on love, but God had a different plan. Crazy Love is the powerful story of how their love turned into the most transformative journey of their lives.

2014 Winner of the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval Award

“Crazy Love is a beautiful, moving, and captivating glimpse into one couple's living out of the Sacrament of Marriage. In doing so, they discover the true meaning of love for each other and encounter our God who is crazy in love with humanity.”

– Reverend C. Thomas Miles, JCL, Adjutant Judicial Vicar,
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston, South Carolina

“This book is the story of a love the way most of us dream it could be. I laughed through this book, cried through this book, and didn't want it to ever end. God showers His love on their marriage and blesses them in their joy and in their sorrow. But there should be a warning with this book: you'll want a Harry of your own.”

- Cecelia Flanary, Executive Director, Divine Mercy Radio

“Crazy Love is a beautiful story of love and faith, joy and loss. Based on true events, Harry and Eileen were blessed to find love late in life. Harry was eventually diagnosed with cancer, and their love story becomes a fervent plea to God. Uplifting, heartfelt, and inspiring, I highly recommend it!!”

- Ellen Gable Hrkach, award-winning, bestselling author of Stealing Jenny

“Crazy Love is a highly readable memoir filled with humor, wisdom, and emotional depth. It deals with both the joys and difficulties of mature love, and the importance of love in confronting illness and aging. From the beginning, the story picks you up and carries you along. Highly recommended!”

- Arthur Powers, author and 2014 Catholic Arts & Literature Award winner

5.0 out of 5 stars A Happy Book. A Joyous Book. You should read this book. October 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you believe in true love, the kind that one is destined for from birth, then this book is for you. If you believe in the power of love to heal and make hearts whole, then this book is for you. If you know that in life, there are emotional ups and downs that will drain us as well as teach us, then this book is for you.

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.

It was OK, but some of it was tedious. I really didn't need to read so much "he said/she responded" text messages. I did something similar when my mother was very sick. I sent out daily emails detailing the ups and downs of her illness. But, I can't imagine it lends itself to the stuff of a book for strangers who don't have a real connection to the characters. Although there came a point where I started to feel connected to the characters in this book, it never came to the point where the connection drew much emotion from me. It kind of felt disjointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, Emotional Read November 8, 2013
By LSG
Format:Kindle Edition
You wouldn't think a memoir of this nature would be a gripping page-turner, but that is exactly what it is. I found myself reading late into the night, reading while brushing my teeth, and sneaking peeks at work. The story of how Eileen and Harry met and fell in love is sweet, funny, and suspenseful. The inclusion of pictures and letters draws you in. While I wish the story had a different ending, I really appreciated this glimpse into the truly remarkable series of events surrounding their marriage and life together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Love is crazy good! November 24, 2013
By Stoph
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Crazy Love is the wonderful, inspirational story of how two people came together, built an idyllic life together and then, took that life down, together. God is a central player in this story as is Harry and Eileen's absolute faith in Him. The book is well written - the characters are fleshed out so thoroughly that by the end of the story you know them well and wish them well. It's a highly emotional book, not to be taken lightly but rather to be enjoyed to the fullest. I recommend this book to anyone looking for an excellent example of what faith and love and hope can do. Crazy.

A tragic and beautiful love story. Eileen exquisitely shares her own deep and true love of her husband Harry with us as she clings to her deep faith in her Lord and Savior. This faith sustains them from beginning to end. I couldn't put it down and the surprise ending had me walking around in a daze for days!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the book that you must read November 12, 2013
By blondie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Crazy Love is the story of a real, fairy tale love between Harry and Eileen. It is the story of a love of which little girls dream, and poets pen. It is the story of a love that only happens once in a life time. There was another member of this love triangle, if you will, someone around whom their love story revolved. God was the designer and compass of their love journey, and Harry and Eileen always looked upward as they moved forward.
Eileen writes from the heart, and you will find yourself, laughing, crying, smiling, and dreaming as you turn each page. The love that Harry and Eileen found seemed rare indeed, but is available to all who make God the cornerstone of their relationship. Join Eileen and Harry as they love each other constantly, consistently, and well, and learn to love God's will for their lives. If you believe in love, and especially if you do not, this is the book that you must read, then supply for everyone's Christmas list.
