It was only a matter of time before Sarah Ban Breathnach yet again seeped into my soul and set about answering every question I have about the effort it takes to live a life less ordinary when you havent got two pennies to rub together. It was only a matter of time before she blessed us with the gift that is her writing: just a matter of time before she wrote another book that fills a hole in all our lives and decorates it with soothing words, blatant truths and the kind of possibility our authentic selves are always willing to grasp.

On December the 29th this year (I know!! A hideously long time to wait, but wait we really must) Sarah Ban Breathnach will publish her latest book, Peace and Plenty: Finding Your Path to Financial Serenity described on Amazon today thus:

” “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.”

And though one barely likes to think of oneself as “spiritually bankrupt” or indeed “financially strapped”, this book is both timely and indeed much anticipated whatever it’s subject by all  those of us who adore Sarah Ban Breathnach and have over the years come to rely on her infinite, often clearly hard won wisdom.

Patience is a virtue my Darlings. In this instance may we be blessed with it in abundance.

Pre-order it here, for the most scrumptious of  Christmas presents to yourself…
