Storyline

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

Wonderful Series
19 February 2017 | by beadhive-73540See all my reviews

This is one of the most fascinating a series and it drew me in 100%. You cheer and cry for the characters, often in the same episode. Well cast, extremely well acted and directed, it portrays living in Liverpool right after WWI. I am SO hoping to find a copy of Season 2, and it would be a terrible shame if only two seasons were made.
