Item description for Goddess Rising by Melissa Bowersock...
It is the future, and the end of the world as we know it does not come through nuclear war or an asteroid impact, but from within the earth itself. A global geologic holocaust has destroyed civilization, leaving only a tiny fraction of people to rebuild scattered colonies. Reduced to a primitive state, they live close to the earth and cultivate a Goddess worship, and chosen ones dream a prophecy that Greer, a female savior, will return them to greatness.
An epic and magical story of one woman's exceptional destiny during exceptional times, Goddess Rising follows Greer's journey from simple obscurity to prophesied reign. Acknowledged as the face of the Goddess on earth, Greer discovers the rewards of power---and its price---as she struggles through her own labyrinth of fear and desire, sexuality and sacrifice, love and death.

Mythical and Inviting! Mar 6, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The Hero's Journey was evident throughout the book from the initial refusal of the call to the facing of enemies, discovering our allies, the return with the treasure, and the final difficulty of living in two worlds. Joseph Campbell would be proud! The crafting of Greer's act of surrender, of being true to one's purpose in life, regardless of personal desires and outcome, exemplified the struggle we each go through in order to be true to ourselves and our Soul Path. Brava!
Absorbing and Inspirational Jan 12, 2006
From the very first page, the story was interesting, absorbing and different. There was no way to predict where the story would go as each chapter revealed a new layer, ever expanding the story and its message. The characters were beautifully and deeply introduced and I felt a strong bond with each of them. I immensely enjoyed this read. It is a difficult book to categorize and I began reading it with no notion of what it was about or where it would go. No matter---I enjoyed the trip, every page of it! I find myself thinking about it and the feelings I had while reading it. The characters and the whole experience of reading it has stayed with me these past two months since I finished it. I will read it again and again over the months and years to come.
Enlightening and Inspired Dec 2, 2004
I bought this book because I was inspired to do so after reading the other reviews on this site, and I must say that I am immensely grateful to them for recommending it so. Goddess Rising is one of those rare books that not only provides the reader with a good story, but also brings greater understanding and a level of higher-consciousness to ones own self and soul purpose. As I was reading this book I found myself connecting with Greer on a multi-tude of levels and found her story to be my story, as well as every other womans story who finds herself standing at the edge of a path leading towards awakening. Greer is truly Everywoman. The deeper I got into the book the harder it became for me to discern the past from the future. But then as Sir Arthur Wing Pinero stated; "I believe the future is only the past again, entered through another gate" This book is definately worth the read, and I would invite anyone who does, and has questions remaining as I surely do, to write me, as I am more than willing to engage in a discussion about this work.
Ancient Belief Systems Dec 31, 2003
Melissa Bowersock's "Goddess Rising" speaks to the belly of your belief systems. After studying comparative religions for twenty years, this is one of the few books I've read that takes the inner qualities that created beliefs and puts it in a format that is not only entertaining but educational. It gives the reader a look at how it all may have started in a story format that you simply cannot put down!
A story that expands your view of life Apr 29, 2003
Greer could be anyone of us and it is so easy to relate to her as she struggles with issues of fear, sexuality, love and compassion in order to raise to greatness. It is rare to encounter a book that can have a lasting impact as Goddess Rising. This story will definitely expand your view of life. Read it once and read it again after a few months. You will notice new insights each and every time you read Greer's story.
