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.
