A journey from the depths of despair, to hopes dashed. Bobby and Lily have only winter in their lives.
A terrible act of violence is about to forever alter the fates of a young boy and his infant sister. An act so vile, the ripples from it will cascade through the rest of their lives.
Six years later.
Bobby and his sister, Lily are held captive by the fiends who perpetrated the unquestionably awful act upon their mother, their dear Mummy.
Living, just barely, the children are treated like animals, abused both mentally and physically. The question is why?
As the tale unfolds, Bobby begins to realise that he and Lily are pawns in a greater game. Their escape from captivity is a happiness short lived as one thing after another proves to be less than they hoped. The freedom once longed for becomes more of a burden with each passing day.
Whilst Bobby grows into a deeper malaise, spawned of pain and the hope of seeing his Mummy alive, his sister's erratic behaviour becomes all the more troubling.
When the end game comes, will the two children, who've only ever had each other, summon the joint strength to survive?
From the harshest of winters, a lily will try to bloom.
