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.

Reviews for Annelies: A Novel of Anne Frank

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 *
