    Knuckling the salty tears from my pale cheeks, I stared blankly at the photograph my mother had slipped into my suitcase before I left. A lump formed in my throat as I struggled to catch my breath between the heaving. Over my shoulder, the sound of the wireless drifted up the stairs; Mr Tom called me,

    “Children’s hour, Rose!” he chimed.

    Startled, I patted my blotchy face with the sleeve of my cardigan; I didn’t want him to see me this way.
