Disaster on the River, the third in a series of Bible Camp mysteries by Christian author Cheryl Rogers, has been released. The story, set in the Central Florida backwoods, is about a boy’s fellowship and its ill-fated, two-night canoe trip.
“Trouble develops early when a couple of teens, Jeff and Chang, become separated from the group in a rainstorm,” Rogers says. “Jeff and Chang’s faith – and friendship – are tested.”
Things really get rough after a bobcat surprises the boys at camp – and steals their dinner. “Pastor Chet Harrigan prepared them well for the expedition, never dreaming that would actually need to hunt for food,” Rogers says.
Shortly after the boys begin their canoe trip, Jeff and Chang become separated from the others when the river forks. Caught in a current, they are propelled to the wrong side of a huge island in the middle of the river. Although Pastor Chet, and their buddy Zack, rush to their aid, they can’t get to them fast enough.
“That first night the group is split in three,” Rogers says. “They end up inside their tents while the rain pours.”
To rejoin the others, Jeff, Chang, Pastor Chet and Zack must cross the island on an mysterious, old Indian trail. But it isn’t safe. “They have no idea how dangerous the trail is … until they encounter snakes,” Rogers says.
Also part of the series are Lost in the Woods: A Bible Camp Mystery, involving the disappearance of a 13-year-old camper, and Alone in the Woods, the second Bible Camp Mystery, involving a mysterious camper living deep in the backwoods to avoid electricity.
The series teaches the biblical path of salvation, the importance of obedience and the power of prayer. “I try to share the biblical lifestyle in a fun and entertaining way,” Rogers says. “I hope to encourage others to seek God and stay connected with His Word.”
Rogers, a former journalist, came to know the Lord as an adult. After he delivered her from an incurable immune disorder, she finally realized what she was supposed to write about. She now writes fiction and nonfiction for readers of all ages to share her faith.
Her Bible Camp Mysteries bring her career full circle. “I decided I wanted to become a writer as a child, when I became enthralled with Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy mysteries,” Rogers explains. “I enjoy sharing my faith through this mystery/adventure series written for preteens and teens.”
