Season of the Sorceress: Poetry and Prose
Bestselling poet Melody Lee brings us her third book, Season of the Sorceress. The collection is broken down into four sections: Fireflies, Wildflower Moon, Black Widow and Rebirth. Lee paints personal experiences and tragedies elegantly into poetry and prose: life lessons of hope, empowerment, enlightenment. She brings the reader with her on her journey of enlightenment and rebirth. Lee has a magical way of connecting her reader to her stories, her poetry, her heart. She begins with self-reflection, by takings us back to her childhood, tapping into memories and base emotions. Her words flow like water from a sacred fountain. Lee writes about love--agape, eros, philia-- being broken by it, growing and finding enormous strength from it. "Without love we are empty vessels, a mass of nothingness. There is no greater power than love, even when it burns us and hurts like hell. Always there something divine that emanates from love." She scatters ashes of romance in each chapter, interlaced with mystical and witchy themes. And true to her free spirit, you feel the gypsy heartbeat pulsing throughout the book.

About the Author
Reading Season of the Sorceress brought me heart-deep into the kind of poetry and prose that wakes us up and creates space within the soul. Melody's work reveals the beauty of words in a deep, earthy way. My witch's heart was captured without apology. Each story, each poem took me further into mystical imagination. There is integrity and passion on each page, but more than that, there is raw freedom of expression, which makes for a truly memorable book. If words are magic, then Melody knows how to cast a spell. The rhythm of the seasons, the mystery of the elements, the truth of vulnerability and the strength of memories collide between the pages. Season of the Sorceress inspired me and left me thinking of possibility; and that is what great art is all about. Wildly recommended.

Each section of this beautiful compilation is stunning in its own right, each encouraging me to dig deeper into my own being, to rummage around in her words and my heart and draw every beautiful strand of my essence to the surface.
Melody talks to the woman in me, the spirit in me, the fire in me and not only touches my soul, but all the streams leading to it. She has an innate ability to remind of my strength, the beauty in developing it and the artistry in building it into my life.
I walk away after reading her work, always, with a deeper understanding of everything sacred both within me and within the natural world that surrounds me and reading her work is nothing short of magic, when she leaves me feeling as if I have spoken to the stars themselves.
