Book Recommendation: ‘The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot’ by Marianne Cronin

I was finishing this book when my husband looked over and said, “A book shouldn’t do this to you.” But I think books should make you feel all the emotions, so sometimes that includes tears streaming down your face.

The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot is a sweet story about two people who find each other at the Glasgow Princess Royal Hospital in Scotland. Lenni is a 17-year-old patient in the terminal ward who meets 83-year-old Margot. Their unlikely friendship grows into a life-affirming project as they share tales of their combined 100 years through stories and art.

Cronin’s debut novel is an enjoyable read – at times funny and bittersweet – and you just may fall in love with these characters. I rate this a five-star, two-tissue read.
