“Beyond This Hill”: a poignant tale that touches the hearts of the readers as they get to know how deep the relationship of the characters is and where readers can relate to both. “Beyond This Hill” is the creation of the published author, Bob Koonce, a man who gave his heart to the Lord at the age of seventeen. His sense of humor is described as intellectual and dry with a touch of love in every story he makes. His humor and love for his family, especially for Jesus Christ, is evident in his prosperity and short stories.

Koonce writes, “Beyond This Hill is the tender story of Sammy ‘Sam’ Wilson, orphaned at the age of seven, and Becky Brice, the new preacher’s daughter. Miraculously, Sam grows up to become a world-renowned heart surgeon. Becky adores Sam from the day they first meet when both are eight. Her words, ‘I love you, Sam Wilson. I always have, I always will,’ embarrasses Sam as a child but becomes an anchor for him in times of stress in adulthood.

“Annette Warren, the brat granddaughter of rich Mr. Warren, the town’s financial bully, is a constant thorn in the sides of both Sam and Becky. Annette is stunningly beautiful with flowing black tresses framing her face and cascading down her shoulders. Annette despises Becky and seizes every opportunity to humiliate her in public. Then there’s Carol, Becky’s look-alike. Like Becky, Carol is beautiful with fiery red hair with no freckles to mar her beauty and laughs easily. And like Becky, Carol also loves Sam.

“Tragedy strikes Sam and Becky. A bank robber holds a knife to Becky’s throat as she struggles to escape. The robber’s partner aims his gun, preparing to shoot at Becky. ‘No!’ Sam shouts and hurls himself into position between the shooter and Becky. As Sam lay fighting for his life, Becky sobs, ‘I love you, Sam Wilson. I always have, I always will.’

“You will close this book with a warm feeling inside you.”
