Same kind of different as me

Author: Ron Hall and Denver Moore

This book was very engrossing as well as heart touching! It shows how much difference can just one person make in this world. It is a very inspiring story.

It’s a true story about a black slave, a woman who wants to make this world a beautiful place and her husband who has the midas touch. The story of the black slave is heart wrenching and his life, hard to imagine that it could be real. On the other hand, the husband and wife climb the social and financial ladder so fast that soon they have anything and everything one can think of; but the wife wants something else – to bring a smile on people’s face. So she, along with her husband, decide to distribute meals in their church once a week. Slowly and gradually their once-a-week commitment encroaches the other days of the week. It is then that their paths cross with the black slave and what follows is a story worth reading.

Bottomline: Must read.
