A Season of Mysteries by Rusty Whitener (+ FREE eBook download June 6-7)

A Season of Mysteries has a seemingly light topic: Boy Scout Troop 44 in the summer of 1976. But deeper things are going on beneath the carefree surface of a summer camp. The reality of Light and Dark is discussed as this group of boys learn the reality of both. Encouraging to see the way these friends grow in their faith and share it with others. The deeper subject matter is balanced by humorous moments sprinkled throughout. Rusty Whitener writes an enjoyable and easy to read dialogue.

Some may think the ability to recall entire conversations verbatim is a remarkable gift. But to fifty-year-old Dr. Richard Powell, it is a disruptive burden. He is being haunted by words. The words take him back to 1976, to the unforgettable summer when he and his friends of Boy Scout Troup 44 first witness an epic conflict between good and evil.

Faith was relatively new to Zack, Donnie, Skeeter, and the other boys who had played together on the 1971 champion Little League team. That baseball season was forever imprinted on their souls, due in large part to the life-changing actions of a boy named Rafer. But this summer—1976—they would discover the real depth of their souls and the dangerous influences battling for control of their lives.

A follow-up to Whitener's acclaimed debut novel, A Season of Mysteries takes readers back to a time between the innocence of childhood and the uncertainty of teenage years; where girls, studies, and life's bigger issues become a reality. With the same gripping prose that made Whitener an award-winning screenplay writer, A Season of Mysteries explores the seen and unseen spiritual powers at work and the Ultimate Power who controls it all.
