A Season of Mysteries Book Review

A Season of Mysteries
Picture Credit
 A Season of Mysteries by Rusty Whitener is a unique story about a boy's past.

 About the Book

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.(Goodreads)

My Review

I was confused as to what this book was about and it took my by surprise as to how detailed this book takes a man's life. While the start of the book presents the rest of the story, this was a difficult book for me to get into reading. While the past life of the boys in this book is somewhat interesting, there is a ton of dialogue and my interest was not held. I'm sure many people will like this book but I can't recommend it. 

"I received this book from Kregel in exchange for an honest review."
