Annelies: A Novel of Anne Frank by David R. Gillham

From the author of CITY OF WOMEN, a powerful new novel that asks the question: What if Anne Frank survived the Holocaust?

Anne Frank is a cultural icon whose diary painted a vivid picture of the Holocaust and made her an image of humanity in one of history’s darkest moments. But she was also a person --- a precocious young girl with a rich inner life and tremendous skill as a writer. In this masterful new novel, David R. Gillham explores with breathtaking empathy the woman --- and the writer --- she might have become.
