Vast generational friendships are some of my most favorite. Each giving the other something golden yet fresh. I had a dear friend who once told me the best way to stay young is to keep friends from both ends of the ruler. He was absolutely right. I thought of him so much while reading The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin.

So a friendship is formed between Lenni who is 17 and Margot who is 83. Combined they make one hundred years. What develops transcends time and space to make something beautiful. It's a rich story that shows you can leave a mark no matter the age.


From the Cover...

An extraordinary friendship. A lifetime of stories.
Their last one begins here.

Life is short. No-one knows that better than seventeen-year-old Lenni living on the terminal ward. But as she is about to learn, it's not only what you make of life that matters, but who you share it with.

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

To celebrate their shared century, they decide to paint 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 deepens, it becomes vividly clear that life is not done with Lenni and Margot yet.
