About the Book

Twenty-two-year-old Molly Parsons has just graduated from college when she lands a job teaching fifth grade in Winslow, a small farming community in northeastern Ohio. Just as she and her friend Eva are preparing to move into their new apartment, Eva backs out, leaving Molly without a place to live—until she finds Bertie’s Place. As she arrives at the boardinghouse operating out of a beautiful Victorian home, she is greeted by the owner, Bertie Evans, a spry, older woman who immediately welcomes her with open arms. Grateful for a place to live, Molly settles into her teaching role while making her share of bonehead mistakes. Thankfully, Molly is tough and resilient. More than anything, she has a loving heart and forgives others. But when she encounters more troubles and challenges, will Molly become a wiser, more loving woman who can forgive herself too? Bertie's Place is the heartfelt story of a young teacher as she attempts to navigate through her first year out of college while wading through love, loss, heartache, and betrayal.
