Excerpt from my review of Annelies by David R. Gillham
FULL REVIEW WILL BE ON JANUARY 15, 2019.
ANNELIES is about Anne Frank and describes what the author thinks she would have been like had she lived.
Mr. Gillham did an outstanding job of researching as well as using a creative method of portraying Anne Frank's life as it may have been even though she did not survive the Holocaust.
Through Mr. Gillham’s marvelous writing style we are transported back in time as we experience what Anne experienced during her captivity and as she tries to re-enter her previous life that is always filled with the presence and reminders of her captors and how she had to comply.
ANNELIES is a beautiful, heartfelt book you will want to absorb with attention to every detail.
Anne seems as though she was and would have been a feisty young lady that the world has missed and could have learned from. 5/5
This book was given to me as an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.
