We were taken to the island by a fisherman obviously surprised by our lack of luggage.
"This is the last boat, sir," he said, "if you are thinking of coming back tonight."
"We weren’t," Ella replied for me.
"Very well, miss."
And in a boat that smelled of fish we made the short crossing to the island’s harbour. I was
surprised to find a village beneath the castle walls, for in my mind I had already pictured
Seton Castle as a place removed from our world; but I was glad to be in the "sweet pub" of
which Ella had told me. She reserved two rooms before we sat down to dinner, giving her
surname as Warrington. I nodded, understood and signed my own name – John Wood.
"My mother’s name," she said quietly. "It wouldn’t be a good idea to sign Harewood on
the island; we wouldn’t have a moment’s sleep because of all the attention we received."
When we were sitting at a table in the cosy bar, she smiled at me. "So, here we are."
"Is this what you wanted to show me?" I asked, feeling the weight of family history in the pub
which had the Harewood arms on its sign.
"It is partly," said Ella. "I wanted to show you the island and the castle. But there’s something
much more specific that I want you to see." She paused. "But it must wait until tomorrow
"But," I began, a little surprised. "I thought this was your castle. Surely you’re not a tourist
in your own family home?"
"No," she replied, smiling. "Of course I could take you to lunch with Uncle Cyril and Aunt
Elizabeth if I liked. I don’t think they would be particularly happy to see me, but they
wouldn’t show that. But I can’t, of course, for obvious reasons."
"Among which are?"
"Well for starters, you blind boy, the fact that you aren’t Charlie Stanhope. They wouldn’t
like to see me here with anyone but him."
"At least not until you’ve freed yourself?"
"At least not until I have, as you say, freed myself."
"But there is another reason, too."
"I’d much rather show you the painting in private. Oh, I don’t mind day-trippers; they won’t
affect us. It’s family presence I want to avoid if I can."

Can the school you go to make a massive difference to your life? This is the question that a TV company wanted to answer, so they ran an experiment. They paid for a 14-year-old boy who constantly got into trouble and was thrown out of his South London school to go to an exclusive L15,000 a year boarding school. The experiment was a second chance for 14-year-old Ryan Bell. He had never had the opportunities that his new classmates at Downside School had. When he was asked if he might have trouble getting used to a smart and posh’ new school, he simply said, "Don’t worry about me looking like a person with no friends, all 14-year-old guys are the same – we like cars and girls! I’m certain I won’t have any problems." Ryan’s first year at his new school was a definite success. He was coming top in Latin and got into the rugby team, where he was one of the best. His mother was really proud she hoped her son would never have the problems with money she had. His father had left them both when Ryan was a baby. His mother had always done her best, but admitted she couldn’t give Ryan the best start in life. Now Ryan started talking about going to university and a possible career as a TV director. At his old school, Ryan’s teachers used to say he was always causing problems but at his new school Ryan got on very well with the other students. His teachers said he would get through his GCSE exams easily. There were a few small problems, but at first they weren’t considered too serious. The first one was when Ryan returned home for the holidays and was caught doing graffiti. It was bad, but the school blamed his friends at home for encouraging him to do it and said it would be unfair to expect Ryan to transform overnight’. They were less tolerant of the second incident Ryan took another boy’s mobile phone and even though it was apparently a joke, he was not allowed to attend school for
a week. After returning to the school which he was enjoying being part of, Ryan went into the nearest town one evening with some of his friends. At the local disco he lost his temper and hit another boy in the face. The incident reflected badly on the school’s reputation as the police were called. Because Ryan had already been in trouble and the regulations were the same for everyone, he had to be thrown out of school. This decision was cruel, though the teachers believed his aggression and wrongdoings were caused by his previous experiences. Everyone agrees that Ryan was doing very well and even though he failed to complete his education at Downside School, he progressed a long way educationally and emotionally.

8. Dear Jack,
I’m writing to tell you how my life has turned around recently because of the arrival of Charlie our new pet. He is the most gorgeous black cat I have ever seen. Walking to school, I found him in a box thrown into a refuse bin. He would have died if I hadn’t taken him home. It’s horrifying to think someone could be so cruel. My parents were afraid he might be ill or rabid but I took him to a vet and they let me keep him. He was terrified at the beginning. It took a few hours and a saucer of cream before he began to trust us, but now he is part of our family. Now I have to get up earlier to feed him. Guess what! I stopped buying sweets to save my pocket money to buy cat food.
I hope you see him soon.
