Review

"What I adore about Bertha is how free she helps me feel. I read her words of wisdom and I grin, then I look out at the world with more spunk, hope and a hell yes I can! attitude. Let Bertha do the same for you. I promise, you'll thank me."
Jennifer Louden, best-selling author, The Woman's Comfort Book and The Life Organizer

From the Author

Writing Bertha-Size Your Life! was one of the most delightful things I have ever done. Originally, I was going to write a somewhat typical book incorporating Law of Attraction principles for women experiencing empty nest but Bertha had other ideas...she wanted a book of her own...and that's exactly what she got!

Bertha is one of those characters who get in your head and your heart. From zany outfits to downhome advice--she has it all.

I'm currently working on a sequel...and there has never been any doubt as to whose book it it will be.

If I used one word to describe this book it would be, F-U-N. But then again, there's another; "revelations." And yet another; "perspective." My list goes on and on. I enjoyed this read so much that I finished in two days.

Jane Carroll opens her story with the "Empty Nest" blues as her last child leaves via the altar, but she quickly turns the theme around into a wonderful adventure of enlightenment, encouragement, and self-love. One that helps the reader in sorting out the past, the present, and the next fifty years. She shows us how to really live. That's life...with a capital "L."

As the story begins, she's jogging in the park and meets a woman named Bertha. After friendly exchanges, the two decide the role of room-mates fits them well. As soon as Bertha moves in, life changes and might I say, all for the better. It truly gives new meaning to the phrase, "When the student is ready, ..." Bertha's lifestyle is all about taking time to smell the roses, literally on some days. She's offers how life is meant to be embraced, cherish, lived in the "now," and how drifting is not an option. There's no room for "woe is me" in this book.

Each day (and Chapter) begins with a new adventure, and a flashy new wardrobe, I might add, by the simple question being asked, "Bertha, what are you doing?" I quickly learned that once these lines were read, Bertha would emerge; sometimes climbing on her soapbox and delivering "aha" moments, and other times using life-altering analogies coated with wisdom that couldn't be denied, no matter how far one's head is buried in the sand.

While each Bertha-sized adventure was fun, this book gives the reader much more than chuckles. In the end, you fully understand.

This is a light-hearted read through one woman's life as she tries to deal with the empty-nest syndrome as well as her doubts and fears that tag along with it. Laced with humor throughout, I quickly realized Bertha was her alter-ego pushing herself to see beyond her self-ascribed limitations. In the end she realizes her horizons are endless so why not enjoy it while she can. Filled with metaphors and humor, it is a quick read or it can be savored a little at a time with advice for all women in how to deal with their life. Both inspirational and funny at the same time, enjoy this don't-take-yourself-seriously read and take it for what it is: a fun and positive way to deal with emotional and mental obstacles that might stop you from enjoying life.

Within the first page, I immediately related to the voice of the narrator ... the author's first person with an easy Southern Charm... Then it was quickly evident this book was about relationships ... Teachable Moments. The author immediately established a comfort for me, the reader to consider as issues of tolerance, balance, being alone as compared to being lonely ... the value of acknowledgement and daily affirmation were being addressed in story-form with a light sense of humor and quirky fashion statements for levity. An example of powerful messages conveyed in a light-hearted manner is the metaphor of a balloon bouquet used to account for and to grow expressed desires. Moreover, as Bertha reminds us, while dressed in her finest for housecleaning, "It's just important to find as many ways as you can to feel good and to enjoy life."(*) I loved visiting with Jane and Bertha ...learning of these lessons, among others taught in such a cheery manner ... shared in such a pleasant book with fine Southern Charm welcoming the reader to visit a bit longer... with enough time to perhaps be Bertha-Sized in the grand scheme of things... (*) Carroll, Jane (2012-05-29). Bertha Size Your Life (The Bertha Series) (Kindle Locations 640-641). Saga Books, Kindle Edition.
