ThereMoreCharles Wheeler spent his early years in the idyllic surroundings of the Lake District of northern England. But when he was eight years old his father returned from war service and the family moved south to their cramped home in north London. There they joined an assembly of saints of the Open Brethren, and so began eight years of a strict and exclusive religious upbringing.

Sexually assaulted by an older boy, forbidden to write to his childhood sweetheart, and subtly pressurized into conversion, Charles twice came close to making his escape-first by running away to the Shetland Islands, and later, wracked by guilt over making a false conversion, by using his fathers revolver. His escape was achieved when he joined the Royal Navy at the age of sixteen- but conversion to Catholicism and marriage to a Roman Catholic caused a tragic family schism, and it was not until long after his fathers death that he was at last able to find intellectual equilibrium.
