The storyline in Same Kind of Different as Me is told from two perspectives, that of wealthy, white Ron Hall and homeless, black Denver Moore. The connection between the two is the Union Gospel Mission where Ron and his wife, Debbie, serve meals every Tuesday.

The voice of Denver Moore was the more authentic feeling of the two for me. Ron Hall came across as superficial even as he struggled with his faith in the face of profound loss. I liked the book enough to put the sequel, What Difference do it Make? on my TBR list. ( )

What a great and inspiring book. Sad though. It was the read one year for incoming freshmen at
Appalachian State one year. ( )

One of the most inspiring books I've read in a long time. A true story of a privileged art dealer and a homeless man who escaped a life of modern day slavery and how they become acquainted and are forever changed in the process. Am hoping to read the sequel soon. ( )

Such a lovely, tear jerking story of friendship with no bounds- just shared love. ( )

Well- a poor Lazarus poor as I
When he died he had a home on high....
The rich man died and lived so well
When he died he had a home in hell...
You better get a home in that Rock, don't you see?

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 084991910X, Paperback)

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery. An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel. A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream. A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.

It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana . . . and an East Texas honky-tonk . . . and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda . . . an upscale New York gallery . . . a downtown dumpster . . . a Texas ranch.

Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, this true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

The co-author relates how he was held under plantation-style slavery until he fled in the 1960s and suffered homelessness for an additional eighteen years before the wife of the other co-author, an art dealer accustomed to privilege, intervened.
