Tough, sexy, funny and heartbreaking, Lillies details the lives of Iris, May and Ruby Moss - Catholic sisters coming of age in a dockland terraced house. Familial love sustains them, and their fortunes are bound to those of their brother and their father. Set in the years immediately following the First World War, Lilies pulls no punches in its storytelling. It depicts a sensual, vivid and sometimes savage universe - where life is lived on a knife-edge of poverty, fuelled by various kinds of love. Dadda, the family's charismatic and mercurial father married very young, is now widowed, and his struggle to nurture his unruly children proves both moving and comic. Written by Anonymous

Since you were gone
1 October 2009 | by (Belgrade,Serbia) – See all my reviews

In Liverpool just after first world war we see the lives of family Moss.The oldest sister Iris was very devoted to god and father Malia convinced her to become a nun, only because he loved her and wanted her to go away from him. Her younger sister May, a former maid in the family Brazendale, had an affair with Mr.Brazendale and got pregnant. Later she found out that it was all planed an arranged by his wife, because she could not have children. The youngest sister Ruby had a twin brother who died in the First World War. She forms a wonderful friendship with local butcher, Austrian communist which ends up in romance. The only brother Brian turns out to be a very sensitive, and he gets a job as a stuard on a cruise ship for America. Father, a widower who is a veterinarian falls in love with Miss.Bird a local school teacher. The best scene in a whole series was the one where Dadda, the father expresses his love for Miss.Bird. Brian McCardie who plays Dadda gave an excellent performance. The story of family Moss was the story of a very close family. The story was very interesting, after you laugh in one scene ,you are likely to get sad in the one that follows. I am sorry that things did not worked out more happily for Moss sisters. When father found out about Mays pregnancy he took his belt and started to hit her. Soon the other two sisters like little birds hugged her to protect her. A very emotional scene. Brian was very devoted to his sisters and a very likable character. Frank, a Mays childhood friend, had a wonderful scene when he expressed his feelings towards May.
