WHY WON'T MY CAR TURN OVER?

I have a '92 Toyota Corolla. I went on a 7 month deployment and left the car sitting. When I got back the car wouldn't turn over. I forgot to disconnect the battery and I didn't have a voltmeter handy to check it. I attempted to jump the battery to no avail. I replaced the battery and still no luck. When I turn the key I can hear a faint click, which initially suggested to me that the solenoid on the the starter was engaging but the motor was not turning. I hooked a jumper up to the starter motor and touched the battery and the starter motor is just fine. Is it my solenoid or is there a damaged wire between the battery and the starter? I replaced the starter about 2 years ago.
