GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Peace and Plenty by Sarah Ban Breathnach

Product 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 THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

This book should appeal to everyone since it deals with the important subject of money and your relationship with it.  There are more arguments and divorce over this subject than any other.  Sarah Ban Breathnach will make you think about your relationship with it in new ways.  Most people's relationship to money is built in childhood and you will be force to relive some unpleasant facts about it, but the end result is worth it.   The author does a fine job of making stories relate to your own experiences.  This is a book that might be easy to digest in one chapter at a time.  I received this book at no charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review at no compensation.

  2. This looks like a great book. I think the LHJ quote to be very telling. A lot of those women were baking and cooking meals out of nothing right up through WWII.

    The more I think about this book; the more I want it. I loved reading her Simple Abundance book. It was so full wisdom. I still have my copy. It's just one of those books I will never give away. In fact, I think the other lovers of the book are keeping theirs too. I never see them in the used book stores. I hope Sarah is writing another book for us to read, enjoy, and keep forever.
