Bertie's Guide to Life and Mothers

Heart. The baker’s dozen cast of characters from Alexander McCall Smith’s 44 Scotland Street series are back, led by Bertie Pollock, in a book titled, Bertie’s Guide to Life and Mothers. Serialized in The Scotsman, these short episodes are assembled into books on a regular basis. The big hearts of so many of the characters run through this collection of installments. There’s kindness and love and caring going on amid the routine challenges of life. Those characters who seem to make the lives of others more difficult than is necessary play their roles here, and they can’t drag down the progress of those with heart. Any reader who wants to be uplifted by a feel-good novel that showcases the better parts of human nature and helps us laugh at the lesser parts will likely enjoy this book and this series.
