It is just the kind of book I adore' JOANNA CANNONLife is short - no one knows that better than seventeen year-old Lenni Petterssen.

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.An extraordinary friendship.
