One woman's great love story told in the letters she wrote Beloved I Love You So... is more than a memoir about love, it is a lyrical lesson in how to love and be loved.
From neediness and paranoia to delight, tenderness and ecstasy, the depth and breadth of emotion that spills over each page of "Beloved, I Love You So" is staggering. As I dipped in and out of each love letter, I smiled in recognition of familiar feelings and sentiments that
they stirred up in me, mistakenly believing they'd been long buried and forgotten. "Beloved, I
Love You So"
is a universal love story for lovers everywhere, as well as
the lover in us all. A beautiful and touching read. 5/5 Stars.

I read this incredibly

Beloved I Love You So: A 40 Year Love Story Told in Letters by Melody R. Green is a Lyrical collection of letters, supposedly written to a “beloved” and these contain history, heart, the seasons of the love expressed, the things that made it grow, the challenges it faced, the things that strengthened it, the hope it communicated in the hearts of the lovers and a lot more. The language in this book is filled
with symbolism, each word pregnant with meaning. Whether it is about the love expressed “painfully” or “joyfully” the author invites readers to look beyond the words they see. I enjoyed images like the tin box in which the letters of the beloved are locked
away-a kind of treasure holding emotional and spiritual gifts.
Melody R. Green is very creative and uses the epistolary style to translate the message of a love that has endured many years. There is so much to relish in this work- the expressions of intimacy, the adventure between two souls in love, the excitement of feeling love and giving love and a lot more. The writing is filled
with a spiritual atmosphere that transcends human love. Perhaps that is why the author makes reference
to Rumi and Hafiz. “Maybe I am like Rumi and Hafiz. I see love as the light that leads us through the mundane. My poetry is written
not verses. It is distilled
in moments of love. Love is expressed
in moments over time, yet each moment is complete unto itself.” Beloved, I Love You So is a delightful expression of love, a memoir that will have readers turning the pages as they listen to one soul addressing another. A lovely collection of poetically written letters indeed
