PEACE AND PLENTY by Sarah Ban Breathnach Review & Giveaway

"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.

In today's tough economic times, we are all feeling the burn.  Coupon clipping, frugal living, and recycling has become a day to day routine for us all.  But, trying to scrape a few pennies together to make ends meet is just the tip of the iceburg.  You have to worry about yourself too - is all that worrying giving you an ulcer? Full of rage, or shame?  Sarah shows us how to pull out of our deep funk with grace and able to live with our choices.  A great book, not just for women, although it is geared toward them.  Lots of tips and advice.
