CHICAGO - Nov. 16, 2013 - PRLog -- Chicago, IL - The Goddess Letters (ISBN 9780988-262669), a debut novel by naturopathic physician and author, Vicki Matthews, has been named the finalist in the Fiction: New Age category in the 2013 USA Best Book Awards. The award contest was sponsored by USA Book News, which announced over 400 winners and finalists in over 100 categories, and presented awards for titles published in 2012 and 2013.

A romantic tale of love and cultural crisis, The Goddess Letters features Chicago economics professor, Rob Harris, and his college lover, the mysterious Selena Wilmington, a famous Hollywood actress whose nightmare visions of cries for help from women of the past become a dangerous reality.

Chicago professor, Rob Harris, knows he’s living the good life: he has a dream job, a devoted wife, and an adorable daughter. But he risks everything that matters to him 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 once-rigid views on nature, divinity, women’s roles, and even love. To his amazement, he comes to accept that the greatest hope for us all may actually rest with the forgotten wisdom from our past.

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.

"It’s exciting for The Goddess Letters to be recognized by USA Book News,” said Matthews. “I’m especially pleased that it’s a finalist in the New Age category, because it offers a visionary look at how we can improve our world. There is so much ancient wisdom that has been forgotten, and if we could embrace it again, I do believe we could save our planet and her people."
