Same Kind of Different as Me


This book was an amazing book. I love true stories written to the point that they draw you in and you just don't really want to put them down. This is one of those books. You will want to get this and read about Denver Moore.

His stories of slavery are mind blowing and you make realize just how bad our nation has gotten. I promise you will want to read this one for sure!

About the book:
A true, inspirational story that crosses the barriers of society.
Meet Denver, raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana until he escaped "da Man"—in the 1960s—by hopping a train. Then, after another 18 homeless years on the streets of Dallas, God moved . . . and a godly woman named Deborah prayed, listened, and obeyed. Mountains began to move, beginning with her husband, Ron, an international art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani suits and art-collecting millionaires.
The story takes a devastating twist when Deborah discovers she has cancer. Will Deborah live or die? Will Denver learn to trust a white man? Will Ron embrace his dying wife's vision to rescue Denver? Or will Denver be the one rescuing Ron?
There's pain and laughter, doubt and tears, and in the end a triumphal story that readers will never forget.

This book was provided by Book Sneeze in order to review. I was not paid to write these words. They are my own opinion.
