Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966644875, Paperback)

At 50, the author lost her job in a social service agency. Rather than rejoining the rat race on another wheel, she decided to take a year "off," to examine her principles, her spiritual beliefs. Was the universe really abundant? Did it really want to give her what she needed? Mornings, she tended flowerbeds and transplanted bushes. Bone-tired evenings, she chronicled her struggles with money, the weather, her limited beliefs about her own potential. Slowly the year became an apprenticeship, not so much to gardening as to her own soul.

At year's end, she turned her entries into a guidebook for other women seeking to "reinvent" their own lives, complete with weekly journal entry assignments, meditations, exercises, and Year of Jubilee collage projects. Offering herself as a mentor, but a frankly human one, she inspires, guides, consoles, amuses. As Jody Stevenson, author of Soul Purpose, stated: "Thank God Mary was fired! And thank God she listened! Her deep awareness of Universal truths is brilliantly reflected in Year of Jubilee. Every woman who comes across her teaching will be blessed."
