The story was ok. I felt for the author in the first and second part of the book and understood the quest to find herself in the 3rd part but was not left with any huge amount of sympathy regardless of the difficulties she faced. The quality of the writing seemed to deteriorate towards the last third of the book. I am not a spiritual person by any means and the whole navel gazing paying healers, shamans, girus to help you realise that you need to get over yourself makes for very boring reading. ( )

(Bought in Australia) Another one with intimacy problems - she was abused by her father, became a nun, then became a callgirl and practiced "relief massage." Turned into a really cloying irritating victim story. ( )

As a child, Carla van Raay experienced a trauma that changed her forever. Burdened by the weight of this terrible secret, all she wanted to do was survive. Life as a nun promised refuge from the outside world. Carla hoped to find love and understanding within the convent walls.

A hasty marriage and separation left Carla with a daughter to support. With few professional skills to rely on from her years as a nun, she turned to another age-old profession - prostitution. She worked as an escort to learn the ropes, then struck out on her own, setting up a massage service. God's callgirl was born.
