Anne Frank's diary is the world's most widely read work of non-fiction after the Bible, yet never before has an in-depth biography of Anne Frank, the exceptional, bright teenager who died in the concentration camps, been published. Carol Ann Lee has been allowed access to a number of previously unpublished documents and gives a definitive account of Anne Frank's short life before, during and after the diary.
'Vivid and shattering... a work of real sympathy and imagination.'
Julie Myerson, Mail on Sunday
'In Carol Ann Lee's excellent Roses from the Earth, she reveals in detail, with the help of Otto Frank's hitherto unpublished memoirs, the untold story of what happened to Anne in the camps.'
David Robinson, Scotsman
