This was a story that took a while for me to get into it, but once I did, it was a story that was hard to put down. It was also a story that had me weeping, so have Kleenex ready. It truly is a true story about "a modern-day slave, an international art dealer and the unlikely woman who bound them together", as the front cover states. I was shocked to learn that during my lifetime there were folks who were (are??) looked upon as "modern-day slaves". But I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the lady, Debbie, who had a heart for helping and not just helping, but loving those she worked with at the Mission. The authors, Ron and Denver did such a good job of telling their stories and how the Lord, through Debbie, brought them together and blessed their lives through knowing one another. I am so glad I was given this book to read! ( )

i loved Denver's sections. it made me cry too, so apparently it was effective in that way. the author has sainted his wife to the point of making her one dimensional, which was annoying. ( )

The true story of a homeless black man and a wealthy white art dealer whose paths cross and change each other forever. This book teaches to be kind to others even though we do not come from the same background, their presence in your life can impact you a life time. I believe that this book can be used in any concept because it teaches children to come together. ( )

Better than the first 30 pages made me THINK it was going to be... on my way to Book Discussion now... we'll see what everyone else thought! ( )

I'm not sure what makes me suspect this story but there is something that rings false to me. It may be the under-acknowledged work of Lynn Vincent who clearly did more to shape this inspiring story than simply write down the words Ron Hall and Denver Moore spoke to her as they told their stories. Their stories are amazing, and I imagine anyone who reads this book will want to learn more about their lives and their advocacy for homeless people. ( )

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?
