Review

"Steiner overlays the story of Rhonda and Gerry Wile--an Arizona nurse and firefighter whose search for children led them to surrogate pregnancy--on an emotionally heightened, journalistic overview of infertility and the options available to prospective parents... Noting barren women of the Bible as examples, as well as celebrities who have used IVF and surrogacy, Steiner appeals to a popular demographic to craft a personable account of the hope surrogacy can offer... [Steiner] effectively touches on the complications of surrogacy--including its economic, legal, ethical, psychological, and societal ramifications--in clear, informative ways. She also offers insights on some of the controversies, from religious perspectives to the lack of coverage for surrogacy by many insurance companies." --Kirkus Reviews"Compulsively readable." --People (3 1/2 stars) on Crazy Love"In steady, intimate prose punctuated by surprising, refreshing streaks of humor... this courageous, empowering survival story brings the phrase 'battered woman' into terrifying focus." --Kirkus Reviews on Crazy Love"[Readers will] cheer as Steiner... slowly regains her sense of self and escapes this crazy love." --The Washington Post on Crazy Love"Harrowing." --TheDailyBeast.com on Crazy Love Steiner overlays the story of Rhonda and Gerry Wile an Arizona nurse and firefighter whose search for children led them to surrogate pregnancy on an emotionally heightened, journalistic overview of infertility and the options available to prospective parents Noting barren women of the Bible as examples, as well as celebrities who have used IVF and surrogacy, Steiner appeals to a popular demographic to craft a personable account of the hope surrogacy can offer [Steiner] effectively touches on the complications of surrogacy including its economic, legal, ethical, psychological, and societal ramifications in clear, informative ways.
