Content addresses various issues~Writing style well done! Cover (F&B)catchy and very professional. Including a Music CD is fascinating. Well done! -- Ryan's Book Was Acknowledged by The Writers Digest Merit Award 2000~Received Certificate Of Merit for If You Believe In...

If you believe in true love, June 24, 2001 Reviewer: Stacia (New Jersey) - See all my reviews For anyone who has found or been wounded by love, "If you believe in True Love" offers an expression for the longing in all of us. Ryan has a pained honest voice that deserves to be heard. When she writes the story of a failed romance in "Going On", she describes "Whispers in the dark, hope hangs on a thread. Faith becomes a web entangled in prayers", perfectly capturing the yearning for romance and the ache of its loss. Ryan's poetry is beautifully complemented by the photographs she has included in the book, and a CD of songs that blend the images .It is a brave, creative move to mix the different media. This is a satisfying work of art, melding the poetry, photography and music to express the artistic vision of its author, and satisfy the audience. For anyone who has searched for love, and I think that's all of us, this is a book to cherish. --Reviewer: Stacia (New Jersey)

Presented To Marlene A. Ryan for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Presented by poetry.com and the International Library of Poetry 2000. -- Editor's Choice Award~Howard Ely Managing Editor~

Showcases Marlene Ryan's remarkable poetic talent, May 20, 2001 Reviewer: Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA) - See all my reviews If You Believe In..."True Love" is an impressive book/cd collection showcasing Marlene Ryan's remarkable poetic talent. Drawing upon life experiences, a keen observation of emotional states, a mastery of word images, her poetry reflects the entire gamut of human hopes, illusions, disillusions, and realities concerning "true love" and the bonds of affection, lust and love that unit -- and separate -- men and women with (and from) one another. Welcome: Welcome this love, always for you./Blessed us from above, that moment knew!//Came at the right time for you and me!/What direction...if tried, would never be.//Welcome the warmth...comes from above./Let it penetrate your soul...feels so good to know!//It's here, it's there...just look for it, call it by it's real name!/Call it true, "true love!"//So welcome this love, always meant for your and me!/Connection from above, he knew! --Reviewer: Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

This is a very .. intense , inspiring , beautiful book !!!, May 12, 2001 Reviewer: Rik (Europe) - See all my reviews I'm a guy who lives in Europe and got this book from a friend . ( thanxxxx alot ) To tell you the truth i am not someone who's into reading books with poems , but this book is COMPLETELY different . When i started to read it i just couldn't put it away anymore . Let me tell you this: it's "mindblowing" . It's so intense. Don't judge this book by it's ...... title , don't get me wrong please , it's a very good title , but what i'm trying to say is , don't get the title wrong ...... this is NOT a book for "lovers" only . This is a book for EVERYONE ... everybody will find his own personal emotions in there. The autor has that very special way to write down all those emotions , it's incredible . And there's not just the poems ( if we can call them poems ... those are MORE then poems ... they're stories ... that's how i see it ) ..... there are many beautifull pictures in it as well . But the real cool thing is .... there's a CD included with very cool music and the lyrics are based upon the poems . I really want to recommend this book to EVERYONE .... I'd say , buy it as a beautiful gift to someone .... but i'm sure if you open it and read a few lines before you give it away, that you will buy a copy for yourself as well . If the autor of this book will read this ( i hope ) .. i would like to thank her so very much for writing this unique book . It made me see things from a different angle ... and it made me look deeper inside myself. ... and others. THANK YOU so very much. --Reviewer: Rik (Europe)

From the Publisher

Ryan's Book Is simply fascinating...covering so much detail, information, love, life, loss, between the lines of each page! It motivates the reader to acknowledge the battle between love and war! That love conquers!

Also her book goes into loss of a loveone...hope, and faith! Her Book reminds me more of a Meditation Book then a Poetry Book, reading through it numerous times, I realize that now!

The reader will be fascinated with the content of her Book, Photographs...her style of writing, and her ability to touch your heart and open up your mind and heart to what one can feel, picture, receive in forms of faith, love, hope, and most important, love is the ultimate gift that unites us all!

You will find yourself just opening a page and reading it and not being able to stop! Some have read it from cover to cover in one sitting...

Her Music CD is a compliment to her Book, it will take you through many emotions, and find yourself enjoying the Music as well as the Lyrics written from the heart! Don't miss out on this one!

I was very grateful for this special gift from a friend. It has opened my eyes to pure "true love". The ups and downs, joy and sorrow of losing such a love. The Author opens her heart so others will benefit from her mistakes and I found that so worthy.
We all will benefit from this Book and the CD, that is also very inspiring. You can read the book over and over and still get different meanings from the poems. To learn to listen to your heart! Not what other people would want you to do. You are a person and this book helps you to open your heart and let true love in.
The writing is simple but knowledgeable and I myself keep reverting back to it.
At times it's sad you can feel yourself going through your own journey and the CD does add to this journey.
I specially like the songs: So Sorry, Should Find!, Time for a Change, Broken Heart, Day by Day, Cared, Is this how we Parted? There are quit a few and the beat gets you hopping and words leave you thinking.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for what "True Love" feels like, to loose and find it again. To go by the feeling in in your heart. To protect this love and never let "true love" go, like the Author does say so beautifully!

By A Customer on July 26, 2002
Format: Paperback
Author's Book is very open and honest. She stresses you to listen to your heart, for it is as she has stated, 'a Protection.' I really found myself very involved and the further you get into her book the greater or should I say more intense it gets. I do recommend her Book to anyone that would like to look a little more into themselves, certainly has opened my heart to true love by understanding and recognizing what it really is and to follow your heart for it does exist as the Author brings out.I found the Introduction to her Book very informative. I am more then empressed with her talent and writings so different then anything I have come accross as far as poetry, this is far more then poetry. These are stories, meditations, more along those lines, wisdom. Very professionally put together! Her Music CD; which I have listened to many times. You need to, there is so much. Alot to absorb in one sitting. I love the songs: So Sorry, Time for A Change, Believe, Is This How We Parted, Cared, Should Find, High On a Mountain, 'True Love' (great story). Other songs; Ever Since You Left, Remember Me (very moving) Music CD. The Music is somewhat not only exciting but coupled with the lyrics amazing as I again, recommend you to listen to it a few times to get the drift, deep. There are alot of songs; with such meaning. This Unusual Book with Music CD certainly deserves a 5, if not more for the simply fact it takes courage to put something so different out into the Market Place. The Author has done a great job, I give her lot's of credit! Very Well Done! I hope to see her on a talk show soon! Worthwhile and should be shared with the public on a larger scale. Someone who has the knowledge of the industry should take a hold of it and run with it, she deserves to be heard!
