Same Kind of Different as Me - my review
The cover describes the book as a story of "a modern-day slave, an international art dealer, and the unlikely woman who bound them together" but it was SO much more. It was eye opening to read about share croppers in the 20th century in Louisiana. It was moving to read about Ron and his wife and their befriending of Denver. Two families so very different but still able to become close friends despite society's prejudices towards minorities and the homeless.I agree it is "a story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it".
