Description

Two foster-system-weary siblings find an unlikely family as they hope for a permanent home.

Ira and Zac, veterans of the foster system, are being uprooted again. This time their destination is Skilly House, a London-based home for children. There, Ira, eleven, and Zac, nine, befriend the staff and other kids, all the while hoping to find their own family to belong to. 

When they’re invited to spend a holiday with Martha, a retiree, the visit opens the children’s eyes to what life in a permanent home might be like. But a tragic accident soon tests Ira, Zac, and Martha.  Can they truly come together as a family? This gentle story explores the love and complexities behind the ties that bind.
