Book Description:

"When money is plentiful, this is a man's world. When money is scarce, it is a woman's world." Unearthed in a 1932 Ladies Home Journal, this quote is the call to arms that begins PEACE AND PLENTY, Sarah Ban Breathnach's answer to the world's-- and her own personal-- financial crisis.

As only Ban Breathnach can, she culls together this compendium of advice, deeply personal anecdotes, and excerpts from magazines, books, and newspapers-- particularly those of the Great Depression-- to inspire readers who are mired in today's financial difficulties. Focusing on her own personal path, Sarah Ban Breathnach will relate never-before revealed details about how she fell from the financial top to the bottom.

Readers will immediately see how deeply she understands the plight of those trying to maintain a happy and comfortable home, while at the same time not even knowing if they will be able to make the mortgage to keep that home.

Sarah has proved to be the voice of comfort for years to women who are spiritually bankrupt, and now she will reach to those who are financially strapped, showing them how to pull themselves out of their psychic and fiscal crises while providing deep comfort and reassurance throughout.

My Review:

I came to be a devotee of author Sarah Ban Breathnach several year ago after reading Simple Abundance. In fact, I gave it to many of my friends. Now Sarah once again shares, with women, her vast store of wisdom and knowledge-- this time it's about money and how to gain financial peace. As she tells us about her own personal struggles, we relate to how important financial security is to our future happiness.

Well-written and down-to-earth, this book is a lesson from the pen of one who has been there. It gives sound advice on how to get out of financial hell, and maintain a life free of money worries.
