Imagine if the boy in hiding with Anne Frank had survived the war...
On 16 February 1944, Peter, Anne Frank's closest confidant in the Secret Annex, declared that if he got out alive he would reinvent himself entirely; no one would ever know who he was or where he had been during the years of murder and destruction in Europe. This is the story of what might have happened if the boy in hiding had survived the horror.
The Boy Who Loved Anne Frank is a compelling novel about the power of stories, the meaning of history and the possibility of coming to terms with an unbearable burden.
"A deeply affecting, unsettling look into the soul of a man... A psychologically gripping tale, this will cause readers to think about the price of safety and the complex obligations of memory."
