Dame Stephanie Shirley is one of Britain’s leading philanthropists and has donated most of her life to helping good causes, especially those close to her heart. This fascinating memoir charts Dame Stephanie’s life from her time as a child in Germany and arrival in England as an unaccompanied Kindertransport refugee through to her retirement and dedication to charity. It is an amazing read which will take you through the entire range of emotions – from happiness at the success of her original company Freelance Programmers through to the ultimate sadness of losing her only child.
