Blakeney,’ he replied. ‘That’ll do,’ she said and that was where she ended up. She was only about thirty miles up the Norfolk coast from us but as far as we were concerned back at home she might as well have been on the other side of the world. She got herself a job in a hotel as a chambermaid and found a bed-sitting room. She contacted social services back in Norwich to tell them she’d gone and to ask them to take us into care, telling them yet again what her fears were for us. Her greatest fear, she said, was for me because of the number of times Dad had told her, and anyone else who would listen, that he was going to ‘break me in’ and put me on the game as soon as I was old enough.

Dad kept ferrets and he liked to put them into the inside pocket of his suit jacket when he went out to drink.
