This volume presents an intimate and compassionate portrait of elderly black and white women who speak, in their own voices, of the domestic and social abuses that led to their financial and emotional impoverishment, and of the transcendent effect of their relationship with God. Drawn from extensive qualitative interviews over a four-year period, the stories reveal women not impoverished by poverty, but amazingly resilient and resourceful in confronting adversity.
