Love in the Time of Bertie

Audiobook
In the microcosm of 44 Scotland Street, all of life's richness can be found in the glorious goings-on of its residents. For Bertie Pollock, things seem to be moving along at a pace that is rather out of his control. In Drummond Place Garden, it appears young Olive has their future together mapped out, wedding venue and all. Meanwhile, Bertie's domineering mother, Irene, is off in Aberdeen, beckoning him to come stay for a few months—and his father, Stuart, might be powerless to stand up to her. Farther up in the New Town, bumptious Bruce Anderson is up to his usual antics, scheming with some old school friends over a crisp bacon roll and a warm cup of coffee at Big Lou's. And in the midst of it all, just across the counter, a new love story may be writing itself for the café's most personable proprietor. With generous warmth, gentle hijinks, and genuine philosophical insight, the stories of these delightful characters offer a touching reminder that life is full of goodness and love, so long as you are willing to receive it.
