A powerful and deeply humane new novel that asks the
question: What if Anne Frank survived the Holocaust?
The year is 1945, and Anne Frank is sixteen years old.
Having survived the concentration camps, but lost her mother
and sister, she reunites with her father, Pim, in newly
liberated Amsterdam. But it’s not as easy to fit the pieces
of their life back together. Anne is adrift, haunted by the
ghosts of the horrors they experienced, while Pim is fixated
on returning to normalcy. Her beloved diary has been lost,
and her dreams of becoming a writer seem distant and
As Anne struggles to overcome the brutality of memory and
build a new life for herself, she grapples with heartbreak,
grief, and ultimately the freedom of forgiveness. A story of
trauma and redemption, Annelies honors Anne Frank’s
legacy as not only a symbol of hope and perseverance, but
also a complex young woman of great ambition and heart.
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.
