The Tale Of Miss Berta London

LoveReading View on The Tale Of Miss Berta London

The Tale of Miss Berta London is one of reinvention and introspection. Following the powerful fashion editor as she experiences knockbacks and must work as a nanny, a position outside her comfort zone but one that allows her to reflect on the important things in life. I found the premise for this book to be quite traditional; the story of the rich person, through a degree of adversity, re-educated to become of benefit to society (A Christmas Carol anyone?) is a classic storyline that can be reinvented to suit a wide variety of situations and time periods. As I started reading, I admit I had to take a brief pause to find out what era the book was supposed to be set in, the writing appeared to me to be more traditional in tone. I liked the concept of the story and the lessons it aims to teach, that you can follow your own path, not the ones parents lay out for you, and that there’s always a chance to change your ways and make sure what you do can benefit others. I liked the flashbacks to earlier in Beta’s childhood, as I felt this allowed me to understand the path she has taken and why, as well as pre-empting the strong family values that come to light later in the book. Although I would recommend suspending disbelief while reading (the speed of repurchasing a home and moving in one obvious example), I think that the underlying message is wholesome and of value. I think that The Tale of Miss Berta London is a light-hearted, traditional style tale that could be read and enjoyed by a wide range of ages.

The Tale Of Miss Berta London Synopsis

The Tale of Miss Berta London is for any young audience who encounters difficulties in school, home-life or any other case for that matter. This book can be for anyone who needs to be uplifted in times of hardship. The main purpose of this book is to uplift and inspire children and young adults. Miss Berta's character is one many young readers can see as a mentor. She goes through a variety of journeys and has come a long way from top fashion editor, to a well-respected humanitarian for the youth. I strongly feel that it is important to circulate positive books for the youth, to give them a sense of conviction that they can achieve anything they put their minds to, regardless of the case or situation. I wanted my first book to target the youth because the future lies in their hands.Berta's days as fashion editor were not what she expected. Her mother was a fashion icon. Therefore, she felt it was her duty to live her mother's legacy and be a fashion mogul. Miss Berta learns a hard lesson: life is more than the material world. She hits rock bottom and has no choice, but to become a nanny for a rich family, the Williamson's. She has to adapt to this social class. This new job she receives as nanny makes her a grounded person and she uses these new skills to create a magazine, that will bring families closer together. She serves her purpose as a mentor, solving problems for troubled families. Miss Berta London is a character, who becomes appreciated by all, once given the chance.
