Eden Hill

Eden Hill

Nothing seems to change in Eden Hill, Kentucky, and that’s just fine with Virgil T. Osgood. He’s been content to raise his family and run the only service station in town. But when a new station is set to open right across the road from Virgil’s pumps, he suddenly faces obstacles in his career, his marriage, and his self-worth that he’s never even dreamed of.

Cornelius Alexander wants his new Zipco station to succeed and help establish a strong foundation for his growing family. As long as he follows the Zipco guide, he’s sure to be a success―and prove his father wrong.

Reverend Caudill wants to be a conduit for grace in his town, but that grace is challenged by the changes sweeping through in the early 1960s. For the sake of this small town, Virgil and Cornelius must learn to get along, but how do you love your neighbor when his very presence threatens to upend everything you hold dear?


his was a very enjoyable read!! Funny,very entertaining, and some seriousness too!
I loved that it was set in the 60's because it shows us that neighbors still cared about neighbors and helped them out in time of need.
Bill, I loved this novel and I Especially loved Reverend Caudill! He definitely had his hands full with the flock of Eden Hill!!!
Madeline Crutcher made me want to strangle her at times!
Virgil and his family cracked me up in mote ways than one. my thoughts were maybe he shouldn't have have hung around frank so much because he was always in trouble with Frank squeezing out of which wasn't fair.
I loved the town of Eden Hill, Kentucky. Wished it was a real place!
I wish that we today, could take time out to help ppl these days like they did back then.
But, people are hard to trust and we are just way too busy with our lives. The world has changed greatly since then and not for the good either.
Our generation has even shut God out of our lives and that is really sad for without Him we are nothing!
Bill, I hope you write a sequel to this story. I'd like to see Vee a grown up young man and see how he turned out and I'd like to see how the Reverend liked his new job
