Same Kind of Different As Me

Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore with Lynn Vincent

This book was recommended to my by a friend. She let me borrow her copy, and conveniently enough, I was about to finish The Secret Garden and was ready to have a book on deck. Plus, I had a vacation coming up which would offer extra reading time on the plane. This was a good read. Something different and enlightening. A true story, it highlights a relationship that wouldn't form on its own, but ends up impacting both parties in multiple, strong ways. Same Kind of Different As Me can't help but make you want to be a better person.

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.


  1. I LOVED this book! Ryan and I gave it as Christmas gifts one year - definitely a feel good book.

  2. I read this book a few months ago and LOVED it, too!
