Having survived the concentration camps but lost her mother and sister along the way, a sixteen-year-old Anne Frank 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 pointless now. 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.

David Gillham's excellent new novel is built on one of the most extraordinary and faithful recreations of a time in history - Berlin in World War II - that I've ever read * Alan Furst, on City of Women * In this moving and masterful debut, David Gillham brings war-torn Berlin to life and reveals the extraordinary mettle of women tested to their limits and beyond. Powerful and piercingly real. You won't soon forget these characters * Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife, on City of Women * I can't wait for Gillham's next novel - play it again, Sam * Stephen King * Gillham's beautifully crafted novel is a respectful tribute to the creative and passionate writer who died so young. Highly recommended * Library Journal Starred Review * Gillham strikes a deft balance between describing the life of an ordinary teenager - going to the cinema, arguing with adults - and the more difficult task of imagining one living with the legacies of extreme trauma * i * In this haunting what-if, David Gillham asks us to reflect on the quandary of how one learns-in the unimaginable wake of the Holocaust-to live again, shedding a powerful, human light on the tragedy of lost potential * Georgia Hunter, author of We Were the Lucky Ones * An original, intriguing novel * Sunday Times *
