Description

With the grace of her groundbreaking bestseller "Simple Abundance", Sarah Ban Breathnach returns, offering a fresh start for women who have lost their financial and spiritual way in the world. "When money is plentiful, this is a man's world. When money is scarce, it is a woman's world." This quote from "Ladies' Home Journal", 1932, is the call to arms that begins..."Peace and Plenty". This book is Sarah Ban Breathnach's answer to the world's - and her own personal fiscal crisis. Here, as she weaves together this compendium of advice, stories from her life, and excerpts from magazines, books and newspapers, particularly from the Great Depression, she inspires readers who are mired in economic problems. Focusing on her own journey, Sarah relates never-before-revealed details about how she fell from the financial top to the bottom. Readers will immediately feel how deeply she understands the plight of those trying to maintain a happy and comfortable home, while not even knowing if they will be able to make the mortgage payments to keep that home. For years, Sarah has been a reassuring guide, illuminating the beauty and meaning in the everyday. Now, in this enlightening book, she reaches out to those who are financially strapped, showing them how to pull themselves out of their psychological and monetary difficulties, as she provides support and cheer along the way.show more

Review quote

"Possibly one of the best personal finance books ever written. Ban Breathnach weaves together the story of her own financial tribulations with inspirational musings, practical advice, and - this is where this book really emerges as a winner - quotes from such diverse sources as William Wordsworth, Million Dollar Baby, Maya Angelou, and a slew of women's magazines from the 1930s. The story of Dorothy Parker's lifelong struggle with money is probably worth the price of the book on its own" Daily Financeshow more
