Annelies Synopsis

A breathtaking new novel that asks the question: what if Anne Frank survived the Holocaust? In 1945, aged sixteen, Anne Frank walks out of the liberated Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and into a new life as a survivor of the Holocaust. Returning to Amsterdam, she is reunited with her beloved father. Yet Anne feels like a ghost. In the city where she and her family were betrayed, Anne struggles to let go of the horrors she witnessed, to forget the cruel death of her mother and her sister Margot. She dreams of being a writer, but how do you carry on when you've lost everything you once were? To create a new life for herself, a life of freedom as a woman and a writer, she knows she must transform her story of trauma into a story of redemption and hope. 'An original, intriguing novel' Sunday Times 'In this haunting what-if, Gillham asks us to reflect on how one learns - in the unimaginable wake of the Holocaust - to live again, shedding a powerful, human light on tragedy' Georgia Hunter, author of We Were the Lucky Ones
