Up the Hill
Access This Book
Up the Hill by James Calvin Schaap is inspirational literary fiction, a series of interconnected short stories about how the dead handle being spirits in a world that continues on without them, but also with them. Narrated by the town's former newspaper editor, a spirit whose home is now the local cemetery, Up the Hill witnesses how the dearly departed deal with their pasts and with the present in scenes that result in forgiveness, redemption, and divine intervention. In Up the Hill, death is only a threshold to understanding, not only for the deceased, but for the living.
