PHOENIX - July 16, 2013 - PRLog -- Phoenix, AZ – Naturopathic physician and award-winning Chicago author, Vicki Matthews, will be appearing at Anasazi Bookstore on Tuesday, August 6, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m., for a reading and signing of her debut novel, The Goddess Letters (ISBN 9780988-262669). Anasazi Bookstore is located at 10540 W. Indian School Road #3, Phoenix, AZ 85037.

A romantic tale of love and cultural crisis, The Goddess Letters was named the Winner in the Romance category at the 2013 New York Book Festival, received an Honorable Mention award at the 2013 San Francisco Book Festival, and was a finalist in the 2013 National Indie Excellence Awards in both the New Age Fiction and Visionary Fiction categories.

Chicago professor, Rob Harris, knows he has it good: a dream job, a devoted wife, and an adorable daughter. But he risks it all when his first love, the exquisitely beautiful Selena Wilmington, writes to tell him that she needs his help – her terrifying dreams have come to life. Despite his doubts, Rob is drawn into Selena’s haunting world of forgotten knowledge, ancient ritual, and relinquished rights. Eventually, he finds himself face-to-face with Jacobi, a preserver of the male order, who will kill to keep hidden a truth that could change the world. As Rob’s own concepts of reality crumble, so do his views on nature, divinity, women’s roles, and even love.

Written with eloquence and an authentic voice, this romantic mystery is a must-read for those who crave compelling drama and adventures imbued with magical realism. Thematically similar to Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, The Goddess Letters also explores how modern society exploits nature as a commodity while simply accepting the patriarchal structure that has become dysfunctional in today's world. Matthews blends historical fact into her fictional tale, using Selena’s visions as a clarion call to modern readers to recognize the need for balance between the masculine and feminine energies within each of us.

“I wrote The Goddess Letters because, like most people, I originally accepted that it was normal for men to have the greatest access to political and financial power, and for God to be male. We are, after all, a patriarchal culture,” said Matthews. "As I read a great number of books on femininity and society, I realized that there was a whole other way to live, a whole other side to history, and I knew very little about any of it. I decided it was time to join the growing number of voices raised to ask why things are the way they are and how could they be different.”  

Vicki Matthews, a Naturopathic Physician and Director of Education for Innersource, is passionate about re-establishing balance in the world. She has been an outspoken advocate for alternative healing and spiritual pursuits most of her adult life, and has appeared as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show twice to share aspects of this message. Matthews grew up in Santa Monica, California, and has a degree in psychology. Her graduate work includes an MBA from the University of Chicago and an N.D. in Naturopathy. Matthews lives on a lake just north of Chicago with her husband, Mark.
