Life for Bertie seems to be moving at a pace that is rather out of his control. In Drummond Place gardens it seems that Olive has their future together all planned out. Meanwhile, upstairs at 44 Scotland Street, Bertie's father Stuart is powerless to stop over-bearing Irene and her motion for Bertie to travel to Aberdeen on a three-month secondment. And, further up in the New Town, while Bruce Anderson plots with old-school chums, love blossoms in Big Lou's Cafe.

Warm hearted, humorous and wonderfully wise, Love in the Time of Bertie offers philosophical insight as well as sartorial elegance. Catch up once again with the extended family at No 44, in this the latest instalment in the Scotland Street series.

Reviews for Love in the Time of Bertie (#15 Scotland St)

'A landmark 15th volume in what is the world's longest running serial novel. Bertie is in a bit of a spin ...and all hope rests on [his] pal Ranald Braveheart MacPherson. Delightful!' * Sunday Post * 'It's easy to understand why the series has gained such a following, with beautifully realised characters and a quiet charm that draws you in' * Undiscovered Scotland *
