Same Kind of Different as Me
A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman who bound them together
A seemingly dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in a state of virtual slavery.
An upscale art dealer accustomed to dealing for millions, in the world of Armani and Chanel.
A gutsy woman with a stubborn compassion.
They come together in a story so incredible, no novelist could even dare dream it.
Same Kind of Different as Me begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana. And an east Texas honky-tonk. A gritty story of pain, betrayal, brutality, and racism, the story surprises every reader as it bursts into a story of unexpected, life-changing love.
Denver Moore grew up in Louisiana in the 1960s, working on a plantation as a modern-day slave. Ron Hall is an international arts dealer who moves between upscale New York galleries and celebrities. It seems unlikely that these two men would meet under normal circumstances. Until Deborah Hall, Ron’s wife meets Denver and sees him through God’s eyes of compassion.
When Deborah is diagnosed with cancer she charges Ron with the mission of saving Denver. From this request, an extraordinary friendship forms between Denver and Ron, changing them both forever. A remarkable true story of friendship and unconditional love!
“Denver Moore and Ron Hall’s story is one that moved me to tears. The friendship that forms between these two men at a time when both were in great need is an inspiration to all of us to be more compassionate to everyone we come in contact with. This is truly a wonderful book!” — Barbara Bush
“The most inspirational and emotionally gripping story of faith, fortitude, and friendship I have ever read. A powerful example of the healing, restorative power of forgiveness and the transformational, life changing power of unconditional love.” — Mark Clayman, Executive Producer of The Pursuit of Happiness
