Fellow Christians at Electra High, you will all remember how I was tormented by the Devil that is drink. Well, with God’s infinite grace and understanding, I saw the light - but the path was a long and cruel one.

After a violent marriage to a pimp, which left me battered and pregnant, I continued to prostitute myself until I could scrape a passage to Scotland. I settled in the Highlands and brought up my son in a croft, living hand-to-mouth on charity until I could redeem myself as housemaid to the Minister.

I’ve not touched a drop since that day. And nor has my son who, I’m sure you’ll agree, has inherited his mother’s good looks. May the Lord grant that he is not cursed by them, as I was! HL
