The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin – Our Review
Marianne Cronin, got me right in the feels with ‘One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot’, leaving me in a fit full of tears throughout.
Lenni is a cheeky and vibrant seventeen-year-old, who just happens to be stuck in hospital on the terminal patient ward.
While defying doctor’s orders, Lenni sneaks off to an art class and bumps into the wild and free spirited Margot from the next ward who is just eighty three years young.
Together the two women become a rambunctious crew, and their new friendship defies all odds to provide a sense of acceptance, love and purpose for them both at a time of devastating uncertainty. Lenni and Margot decide to paint their life stories in a joint project, and as they do, they reveal their heart-warming journey of experience along the way.
This book is a tender, funny and endearing story that will have you completely wrapped up within it.
