Lenni and Margot meet in the art therapy room of a hospital’s terminal ward. Between them they have lived one hundred years: Lenni is 17, and Margot is 83. The two become close friends, buoying each other’s spirits when either needs boosting. The pair decides to document their lives by painting one hundred pictures that chronicle important times in their lives. Don’t read this without a tissue box nearby; but it is well worth some tears. This is Marianne Cronin’s first book; I am hoping she writes another soon – I did enjoy her writing.
