Excellent Book

I loved this book. I found this copy in the laundry room of the RV park I live in.
I read the jacket, and when I found in the description that it was about a homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton, I was drawn to the book.
Denver went through some terrible times, lost many people he loved, had a real hard life, but he came through it, and ended up being a messenger for God.
This book is full of grit and pain, betrayal, and an unexpected life changing love.
This is the most inspirational and emotionally gripping story of faith, and friendship I have ever read. It will tug at your heartstrings.
It is a true story that moved me to tears, as two men form a bond of friendship for many years to come.
This a truly a wonderful book that you must read.
Also read: "What Difference Do It Make." The continuing true story of these two men who kept their friendship going through hope and healing.
