Angie and Ken who have just completed their first year of college, are committed to earning their degrees without the distraction of dating, but when they meet on Zion’s Hill, at their church camp meeting that August of 1963, they experience a strong attraction. During that week of camp, each is torn. They reflect on funny and frank, fanciful and faith experiences that helped shape them into the goal oriented woman and man they are today. Should they listen to their hearts? Must they avoid one another to reach the goal of finishing college? Can they trust that it is God leading them to one another now? By the end of the week, each must make a decision. What will it be?

The illustrator for this book is Susan J. Osborn who created the colored pencil drawings for the book cover and the pen and ink cartoons for the interior.  See her other work at http://osbornart.com/.

Review:

I found On Zion's Hill a fascinating look at one aspect of the religious foundations of African-American life and culture. While this is a subject ripe for research by students of American history and culture as well as by students of the American religious experience, this novel once again proves that fiction can often yield a fuller and more vibrant experience for the reader than can statistics and analysis. This rich novel is focused on the 1960s from the unique perspective of young, faithful Christians in the African American community.While most of the hymns are familiar to 20th century Christians, the experience of a church camp for all ages was a new one for me. As a white teen in the American South in the 1960s, I knew only church camps for youth where the counselors were the only adult mentors and role models. As I read On Zion's Hill, I was envious of this vibrant, multi-generational religious experience. No wonder the African-American churches have enjoyed such a long, vigorous and continuing role in the lives of members who were exposed to and who experienced living faith in action in their elders! Fortunately, the real camp of Zion's Hill continues its vital ministry today, a century later, adapting to changing times while maintaining the age-old wisdom of Biblical teachings. Long may it flourish! This is a mesmerizing view into the world of my contemporaries: we shared the common culture of the civil rights movement, the anti-Vietnam war movement, folk songs, rock and roll, dance rhythms, persons and personalities and we thought we spoke a common language of shared experiences. On Zion's Hills describes this heretofore hidden jewel that supported and enabled African American youth to embrace their faith at a time when many white youth were abandoning their churches in droves. --Brooke Johnson Suiter, Yale MAT, NC Court-appointed-child advocate

On Zion s Hill is a great lighthearted novel of a young couple who met at the West Middlesex Camp Ground. The inclusion of realistic youth testimonies and thought processes for coming to grips with their faith through the eyes of teens and young adults, makes it a usable guide for camp counselors, youth leaders, young converts and those who want to share their Christian experience. The vivid description of the campground, camp members and activities, brings back heartwarming memories for those who d been there and I wish I had for many others. --Verneal Y. MItchell, Physicians Assistant, Former Camp Nurse

For many of us Zion's Hill was not just a place in West Middlesex, Pennsylvania; it was an addictive summer experience. On Zion's Hill is a nostalgic journey to a magic moment so real you almost cough from the dust raised by loaded cars and you can hear "the Saints"; singing as the author leads you up the winding hill. It is well written, sufficiently accurate and successfully captures a unique and wonderful history of a romantic and glorious time many of us still try to re-live for a precious few days in August every year. If you have never had the experience - read On Zion's Hill. It is well written, sufficiently accurate and successfully captures a unique and wonderful history of a romantic and glorious time many of us still try to re-live for a precious few days in August every year. If you have never had the experience - read On Zion's Hill. --Dr. M Tyrone Cushman, Pastor
