Excerpt:- "101 years young"
Lillian addressed the group in a bold, high-pitched voice. "Ladies and gentlemen, please allow me to introduce Mrs. Beth Madeleine." She indicated the fragile elderly woman, who had smiled at Sally earlier. "She is 101 years young."
The crowd whooped and cheered.
"Mrs. Madeleine was born as a noblewoman at a remote French convent during a raging electrical storm in 1899. She was christened Lady Elisa Witherspoon. Her twin sister, Lady Sarah, died when their mother, Lady Constance Witherspoon, and the writer of these diaries, was giving birth. Sarah was killed instantly when the roof caved in, crushing her tiny body."
