The Price of Experience


London 1962 In the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the onslaught of Beatle Mania, a young woman swaps a solitary home shared with a shell-shocked war veteran father, for university in the north of England. While there she meets mysterious Professor Fielding and the enigmatic Doctor Porter, two men who will change her life forever.

The Price of Experience is a coming of age tale about love, survival and sacrifice set against the backdrop of war, it tells the story of three very different lives irrevocably altered by one very simple choice..

The beautiful face on the front cover of the book is Director and theatre practioner Lynne Raubenheimer with whom Stephanie has worked and collaborated with for many years.

The book has enjoyed the support of two internationally known writers, BAFTA winner John Foster and Hollywood screenwriter William Gray, who was assistant editor on the novel.
