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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Black and Rubinstein's research was developed from a National Institute on Aging funded study of chronic poverty and the self in later years.... This text is useful for individuals interested in a variety of issues including gerontology, the self, and narrative methods."

--Amy C. Krull, Contemporary Sociology

"This quiet book is a gift for the next generation(s). The authors have done the hard work of listening well to the narratives of chronically poor women, perhaps the most silent and invisible among us. The stories are given in rich detail. The organization of the book itself forces the reader to experience the tension between the "objective" analysis of poverty and its "subjective" experience."

--Dorothy Remy, American Anthropologist
