Margot by Jillian Cantor
 
In the spring of 1959, The Diary of Anne Frank has just come to the silver screen, and a young woman named Margie Franklin is working in Philadelphia as a secretary at a Jewish law firm. On the surface she lives a quiet life, but Margie has a secret: a life she once lived, a past and a religion she has denied, and a family and a country she left behind. Margie Franklin is really Margot Frank, older sister of Anne, who escaped the Nazis for America. But now, as her sister becomes a global icon, Margie’s carefully constructed American life begins to fall apart. Margie is forced to come to terms with Margot, with the people she loved, and with a life swept up into the course of history.
