Saturday 20 August 2011
Diana Lamplugh suffered any parent's worst nightmare: her beautiful, beloved and sparky daughter Suzy, a trainee estate agent, arranged to meet a client, a "Mr Kipper", at a house in Fulham, west London, on a July afternoon in 1986.

Angelina Jolie is probably right in her assessment that the modern education system is not geared to catering for her children's needs. Her jetset lifestyle means she has the choice of enrolling her children at a private boarding school (state boarding provision is relatively limited throughout the world) or having them taught by tutors and teachers while the family is on the road. Boarding education is not suitable for every child, and not every parent wants to farm out their offspring to somebody else's care simply because they have a job which involves travelling.

Jubilate (pronounced yoo-be-la-ta) is, according to Chambers' Dictionary, the Latin exhortation to rejoice or exult: the opening word of the 100th Psalm (in the Vulgate). According to Michael Arditti: "It just sounded like a good title for a pilgrimage". For a novelist born with Jewish origins and educated at a Methodist boarding school, there appears to be no compelling reason why Arditti should have chosen a Catholic crise de conscience as the subject of this holy visit to Lourdes. Or why he should have used a female narrative voice for the pilgrim, alternating with a (male) TV film director who is shooting a worthy God-slot from a strictly agnostic angle.

I still know the Catechism by heart, having learned it at the age of five. The fundamentals of Christian doctrine were instilled into our impressionable young minds, to be repeated until they were as familiar as the alphabet. Its 370 injunctions are now branded into my very bones, like letters through a stick of rock.
