The poet Helen Dunmore's childhood was made up of brilliantly distinct but separate memories of the many places she lived.

In this poem, the third in a series of specially commissioned new poems for Radio 4, she tells the story of Pearl, a girl who loses her home and her mother and of her efforts to knit her life back together and make sense of the past.
