Review of STILL CRAZY by Judy Prescott Marshall

Julie Holliday loves her husband with all of her heart, but his betrayal sends her into shock waves of despair so deep that she has to flee from him. The author’s description of the heights of Julie’s love and the depths of her despair were heartbreaking. At first, I didn’t really know whether to believe that Dan had really cheated on her or whether she just wasn’t communicating with him enough. When she leaves him behind in New York and heads to Rhode Island on her own, I still was not convinced that Dan was a bad guy. There were so many tender love scenes between the two of them before she left. I enjoyed the book but I was confused for much of it. Did Dan cheat or not? Was Julie crazy in love or just crazy? I think that may have been the way I was supposed to be thinking. The book is interspersed with Biblical lessons and great quotations that teach lessons. Parts of it were a bit trite, but that was okay because the story itself was a good one that needed to be told. I think that my favorite character was Teresa, the young woman whom Julie befriends in Rhode Island and who knows her secrets and has tea with her whenever she needs comfort or just to talk to someone. This is a story about love, relationships and family. There is a deeper theme but I don’t want to reveal it lest I reveal the entire plot. The plot was like being on a roller coaster ride, but it was an enjoyable one. Fans of clean romance should buckle up and prepare for a realistic, heart-felt story of love, loss and love again.
