The Price of Passion
  • The Price of Passion

  • The Price of Passion is the eagerly awaited sequel to Carla van Raay's international bestselling memoir, God's Callgirl.

    A former nun and prostitute, Carla van Raay thought she had come to terms with her traumatic past. But then she received a phone call that threatened to upset the balance once again.

    Carla had first met Aaron at a tumultuous time in her life. She had left a convent after 13 years of bitter cruelty, lost her virginity in a brutal fashion to a man she barely knew, and then hastily got married before giving birth to a beautiful daughter. Now Aaron was back. And what's more he wanted to resume a relationship that had been intense, yet short-lived. But so much had happened since then. Carla had left her husband and, after years of repression in the convent, had turned to prostitution.

    The Price of Passion is a very personal story written with honesty and raw emotion. It is the story of two people who have tried to overcome abusive pasts embarking on a new, yet equally challenging, journey; but neither could have foreseen what lay ahead.

Carla van Raay was born into the Catholic south of Holland and came to Melbourne, Australia, with her family in 1950, when she was twelve. She was a radiant child until the age of six, when trauma changed her. Her choice to enter a convent at the age of eighteen was part of her inability to face life. In, 1969, at the age of thirty-one, she found the courage to leave. Carla lives in Perth, Western Australia.
