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.

1 review for The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot (18th February 2021)

  1. Sarah Turner

    A really lovely read. 17 year old Lenni and 83 year old Margot meet in hospital. Together they have lived 100 years and go about capturing those years to take all the it minds off the fact they are both dying. But this is not a book about dying. This is a book about living, of loving and it is full of positivity and kindness and joy. So although there will be tears and tissues required you are left with left with only good feelings.
