“When money is plentiful, this is a man’s world. When money is scarce, it is a woman’s world.”

Unearthed in a 1932 issue of 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 relates never-before-revealed details about how she fell from the financial top to the bottom. It becomes immediately apparent 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 for years proved to be the voice of comfort to women who are spiritually bankrupt, and now she reaches 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.

    " Really surprised about all the misfortune that happened to her. I loved Simple Abundance but didn't hear much about her after that. I was a good book but not nearly as good as Simple Abundance. I suppose that's because I'm not in such economical straits as the author and so many of the readers. "

    " I could not finish it :( I cannot seem to stand self help books anymore. They seem so presumptuous even righteous at times. This book is in the same category I am afraid. This will be the last self help book I will read for a while. "
