Set in the 1940?s and 50?s, life is slower and young ladies and gentlemen follow the rules of good behavior and manners.

It reads like a visit with a long lost friend, catching up on the highs and lows, the mundane and the spectacular. Learn about party lines and stocking seams, dance lessons and sit down meals for the whole family with plain good cooking and dessert freshly made each day. Laugh at the antics. Shed tears when the secrets Berta carries are revealed. Some things we never get over. Some we hope we never forget! Take a break from the ordinary and enjoy R.T.?s active imagination as she strives to lead an ordinary life as the girl called Berta. The art of storytelling is enhanced with the addition of apropos quotes by great masters of words from previous centuries and hit songs of the day that play a huge influence in her life. This is the first installment of a four book Berta Series. Sing along as we dance through the life and times of R.T. Plasket and travel the path of true love!
Dear Readers, Family, and Friends,
The tapestry of my story was written in previous centuries in the quotes of great masters of words. It was embroidered by Mother with her advice and her sayings, and then embellished by the writers and singers of songs that I feel in my bones. Their words shaped my attitudes and actions and serve as the backbone for my books. If I am one-tenth as good with words as they were, you will be able to follow along with me and share some of the tears and joys that I experienced as an ordinary young girl trying to lead an ordinary life.
I have included the titles of some of the songs that told my story so you find them on You Tube and sing along or hear for the first time the music that played a huge influence in my life.
I began writing my story for my family. While writing and editing my notes, I came to realize my life is more interesting and more meaningful than I ever dreamed. Family and friends have urged me to share my story. They say it's a story worth telling, a story they found worth reading.
I thoroughly enjoyed reliving these experiences on paper and I'm thrilled at the prospect of having you join me in following my story, my music, and the secrets that are mine to tell after all these years.
