Shadow Life by Barry Deneberg


Shadow Life by Barry Deneberg

This highly acclaimed book tells the story of Anne Frank and her family, putting the famous diary into a much fuller context. It is little known that Anne's sister Margot also kept a diary, which did not survive. Having painted a revealing picture of the Franks' lives in Germany and Amsterdam, Barry Denenberg creates a remarkable and carefully researched fictional diary from Margot's viewpoint, offering a fresh perspective on the two years in the secret annexe. He then lets the authentic voices of concentration camp survivors tell the horrifying reality of the last months and days of Anne and Margot's lives.
