Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a poor Yiddish speaking home in 1950s London, Lillian – then just a teenager – marries charming older man Raymond. One day he takes their children to the local park. But he never returns.

When they reappear 40 years later – the search for the truth begins.

Unfolding like a mystery, we follow Danny Ben-Moshe and his eccentric Jewish family as they unearth secrets, attempt to reconcile, and hear shocking news that sheds a new light on events.

This series builds upon the story from Danny’s award-winning documentary film My Mother’s Lost Children.

Sad, gripping and potentially triggering

A nearly unbelievable story about the repercussions of the actions (and inactions) of a young, naive woman in 1950s England whose children are kidnapped by their father. Some of the people in this story are thoroughly unlike able (I'm referring to both parents here) but the story itself is fascinating. Be aware that anyone who has experienced trauma in the form of mental abuse or abandonment at the hands of their parents WILL be triggered by this story.

Haunting

Most striking is the way the story repeats across generations, as told by many family members.

Wonderful heart-wrenching yet heartwarming

As a mother of three young children who my ex-husband stole from me over 9 years ago, I understand this beautiful woman's grief and depression. I know that I would immediately love her upon meeting from her cheerful funny personality 💗
