Same Kind of Different As Me: A modern-day slave, an international art dealer, and the unlikely woman who bound them together by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

Ron and his wife, Deborah, were a wealthy couple living in Texas. Deborah wanted to volunteer every Tuesday night at a homeless shelter, and Ron, committed to re-building his relationship with his wife, agreed. There, they meet Denver, a homeless man that everyone stayed away from. Yes, an unlikely friendship ensues and they are all changed for the better.

A true story, one that had me with tears streaming down my face. Luckily, my head was on a towel, so that’s good when tears are dripping down and I want to keep reading.

Recommended, especially if you need some renewed hope in goodness and redemption.

I, too, cried while reading this book. Luckily, I was lying on my pillow, so I would turn my head and then wipe my eyes with the edge of my pillowcase.
