The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot
  • The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot

  • 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

    As seventeen-year-old Lenni is about to learn, it's not only what you make of life that matters, but who you share it with.

    Dodging the doctor's orders on the terminal ward, she bumps into fellow patient Margot, a rebel-hearted eight-three-year-old. Their bond is instant as they realize that together they have lived an astonishing one hundred years.

    To celebrate their shared century, they tell each other their life stories: of growing old and staying young, of giving joy, of receiving kindness, of losing love, of finding the person who is everything.

    As their extraordinary friendship grows, it becomes vividly clear that life is not done with them yet.

    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 them most.

    'Emotional, involving, witty and sad. Everyone is going to love LENNI AND MARGOT' JILL MANSELL

    'Such a delight! I fell head over heels for Lenni and Margot, their wit and vibrancy and marvellous outlooks on life. An utter joy' ABBIE GREAVES
