Nan never did ask again: Charmaine thinks she was too afraid. So they papered over what was a dark, fathomless chasm in their marriage and pretended all was well.
A year later, Linda was born. Then Eric, who now worked for the Colonial Office, was posted to west Africa to help build a mile railway across what is now Ghana. While they were there, a second child arrived, a boy who lived for four hours. It was only 40 years later, in , when the autobiography on which the film is based was published, that Nan and Charmaine learned from the dedication that Eric had named his dead son after himself.
That spoke volumes, about the emotion locked inside the former soldier and about the complete lack of communication between Eric and Nan. More telling was that in the book Nan and Charmaine were — in their view — airbrushed out of his life, with Nan referred to merely as "S".
Consequently, neither Nan nor Charmaine ever did more than dip into the book and never found out the details of his torture. Indeed, even today Charmaine says she doesn't think she could read the details, and she could barely watch the scenes in the film that show how he was treated. The Lomaxes returned from Africa in , and Charmaine was born two years later. They lived in Edinburgh and Eric worked as a lecturer at Strathclyde University.
But the chasm in the marriage was too big and too deep, to be ignored. Eric spent unexplained time away from the family and was unable to deal with ordinary life, especially the bills. As Nan struggled to hold everything together, the bailiffs were knocking at the door. Meanwhile, another blow landed when Linda had a brain haemorrhage at the age of 15 — she recovered, although the condition that caused it did eventually kill her.
By the time Charmaine left home to train as a midwife in Bristol in , she suspected her parents' marriage wouldn't survive. But Nan was devastated when Eric met Patti and left to be with her a few months later. After Eric left, Charmaine and Linda cut off contact with him. Dad had made life very tough for her: Mum deserved better.
