An extraordinary friendship. A lifetime of stories. Their last one begins here.
‘Full of wisdom and kindness. It is just the kind of book I adore’ JOANNA CANNON
‘Touching and honest and funny. I completely and wholeheartedly fell for Lenni and Margot’ NINA POTTELL
Life is short – no one knows that better than seventeen year-old Lenni Petterssen.
On the Terminal Ward, the nurses are offering their condolences already, but Lenni still has plenty of living to do. When she meets 83-year-old Margot Macrae, a fellow patient offering new friendship and enviable artistic skills, Lenni’s life begins to soar in ways she’d never imagined. As their bond deepens, a world of stories opens up: of wartime love and loss, of misunderstanding and reconciliation, of courage, kindness and joy.
Stories that have led Lenni and Margot to the end of their days.
Fiercely alive, disarmingly funny, and brimming with tenderness, THE ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF LENNI AND MARGOT unwraps the extraordinary gift of life even when it is about to be taken away, and revels in our infinite capacity for friendship and love when we need it most.
‘Emotional, involving, witty and sad. All my favourite things. Everyone is going to love LENNI AND MARGOT’ JILL MANSELL
