About this item

Lives don't come much more hardscrabble than Denver Moore's: born in rural Louisiana, Moore, with his family, worked on a plantation where they were "paid" in credit instead of cash. In the 1960s he began riding the rails, living as a hobo--a life that eventually led to a 10-year stint in Louisiana's infamous Angola prison. Finally, in a Fort Worth homeless shelter, he became friends with Debbie Hall, and in turn Debbie's husband Ron, a Texas art dealer. The story of their unique friendship, Moore's inspiring escape from homelessness, and their shared faith in God's grace makes for an uplifting spiritual memoir--one made more poignant by the death of Debbie in 2000, the tragic event that led to the writing of this wonderful book.

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.
