  • 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.

    A Somethin Else production for Audible.

heart warming tale

I binge listened to this tale ..your mum sounds positively beautiful.. I have no idea how she was able to sort of move on after the loss of her two children ,I don't think I could hatred would have been my driving force to finding my children .. all I can say is well done in telling your story
