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 Annelies Marie Frank was also a person—a precocious young girl with a rich inner life and tremendous skill as a writer. What if she had survived? In this masterful novel, David Gillham explores with breathtaking empathy the woman—and the writer—she might have become.
"Gillham's beautifully crafted novel is a respectful tribute.... Frank's life thereafter is so vividly realized that readers will have to keep reminding themselves this is fiction."—Library Journal
