    1. I don't generally like short stories all that much, but I love Rosamunde Pilcher's writing. This book is full of nice happy-ending tales which I listened to as bedtime stories. It worked beautifully and sent me happily off to sleep.


    2. Una novela que empecé a leer en un fin de semana de estadía en Algarrobo en Enero.Demoré casi un mes en leerlo pero no porque fuera malo o aburrido, sino porque estos 13 cuentos, deben leerse de a poco, tomándose el tiempo para cada relato, no son para leerlos a la rápida ni a la pasada, hay tomarle el gusto a cada uno de las historias.Una novela encantadora, cada una de las historias conlleva un drama humano, pero de alguna u otra manera vivimos con la certeza que el alma humana tiene la c [...]


    3. Rosamunde Pilcher's stories are so lovely! She writes about strong women characters facing everyday problems in Scotland or Cornwall, England. My favorite story in this collection is called "Miss Cameron at Christmas." The heroine, Miss Cameron, is an aging Scottish lady, who after taking care of her elderly parents for most of her life, is left enough money in her father's will to buy her own little home in a village outside Edinburgh. She befriends her neighbors and comes to their aid one Chri [...]


    4. Not everyone can write short stories well. It takes a different kind of skill, I think. You haven’t got a couple of hundred pages to write an epic story and develop brilliant characters. You only have maybe twenty pages to tell a story and introduce characters in a way that leaves an impression, then you have to leave those characters behind for a new story. It takes a different sort of reader, too, to appreciate the brilliance of the stories.I haven’t read a lot of short stories, some Alice [...]


    5. Se trata de mi primer contacto con Rosamunde Pilcher. Realmente, no iba a leerla, surgió sin más. Un impulso, diría. ¿Y qué creen? Nuestro encuentro fue ¡sorprendente! No imaginaba que me llegaría a fascinar de esta manera. La edición que yo leí contiene cuatro relatos (Toby, La Navidad de la señorita Cameron, Té con el profesor, Alcoba azul); relatos cuya prosa me resultó muy tierna y conmovedora. ¡Qué bonitas historias! A su modo, son tristes, pero una vez leídas, te deja con el [...]


    6. I love all things written by Rosamunde Pilcher. Her simplicity of description and her beautiful way with words is astounding. Her stories flow effortlessly across my imagination, bringing to life her characters and making me fall in love with them every time. This particular book is full of priceless gems. I never read any book more than once but I've read The Blue Room from cover to cover many times. I still cry or laugh in all the right places. A must read for anyone who, like me, thinks of En [...]


    7. Here is my bookcrossing review from 2004: "I remember these as delightful stories. Deftly written too with the way each character's life is quickly sketched and captured by small but insightful details."Re-reading the collection more than ten years later my opinion hasn't changed. I released the book at the Embassy Cafe in Newcastle in November 2004. I wonder who picked the book up?


    8. Refreshing to have a good book without sex, murder, child abuse, or political corruptionWonderful for a peaceful sleep, Val.Will save it for you


    9. Just picking up this book makes me smile. A collection of short stories that cover a full range of emotions. Great for a day on the beach.



    10. Cartea a apărut în limba română la editura Vivaldi în anul 2002 cu titlul " Dormitorul albastru"la niște ani buni de la prima sa apariție la Londra în 1985. Este o carte de nuvele mai lungi sau mai scurte absolut superbe și cuceritoare chiar dacă în alt stil decât cunoscutele sale romane " Culegătorii de scoici" și " Septembrie". Dar cartea mi-a plăcut foarte mult pentru că fiecare povestioară e un îndemn la optimism și încredere în ziua de mâine care, în mod sigur, va fi [...]



    11. CharmingHad read the book before but it is a lovely read, especially as everything turns out well in the end. Easy, romantic little stories.


    12. Previous to I kept a book log. I am updating ratings based on my log. My rating system is 1 - 10. I gave this book an 8.0.



    13. I did it. I DID IT!! I finally finished this book! It took me almost a month and a half, but I read it. And now I'm not sure what to think. This collection of short stories is all about birth, death and marriage. I can only think of 2 that weren't the first and the last. Overall, this book just didn't strike a chord with me. There were a couple that caught my interest and I found myself wanting more, but, of course, they're short stories. They don't give you more. And the other stories weren't l [...]


    14. MSJA Book Club selection, October 2007. I love Rosamunde Pilcher. Her stories and novels are so lovely! She writes about strong women characters facing everyday problems in Scotland or Cornwall, England. I would love to live in one of her country villages. She writes about themes that touch everyone. Many of her plots revolve around family relationships, new babies or the death of a loved one. My favorite story in this collection is called "Miss Cameron at Christmas." The heroine, Miss Cameron, [...]


    15. Short stories.Rosamunde Pilcher certainly has a way with words and I started this book enthusiastically, thoroughly enjoying the title story. The next few were also good, but then I started to feel that the subjects were becoming too repetitive: three stories were about panic births, for instance. I realised that the book had lost my interest and I'm going against the grain here, to only give 3 stars.One story, in particular seemed a bit unlikely - a ten-year-old boy, recovering from an appendec [...]


    16. I was very sad when this book of short stories ended. There are not enough Rosamunde Pilcher novels for my tastes right now. I may have to break out The Shell Seekers and Coming Home. I may also have to haunt some used bookstores to try and find some of her shorter and older books. Perhaps even a trip to the UK is in order. ;-)One of the stories that I particularly liked was one about a man who stays home from work one day with a cold and is surprised to find what his stay at home wife really do [...]


    17. These short stories, all with happy endings, reminded me of a book which had been my mother’s when she was a child and which I read as a child and enjoyed as well. Its subtitle was something about children whose tears were turned to smiles. In her way, Pilcher does the same thing, but her people are so real and her settings so well described that the book doesn’t come across as too sweet or sentimental. I had read this years ago and now I want to go back and re-read more of Pilcher’s books [...]


    18. I bought this book when I was about 20 years old. I've read it on and off ever since. I found this book again after it was packed away for 6 years. I found it to be the same sweet wonderful book it was as it had been in my head.Some people said it was about birth and death, but there's more too it than that. Yes it's true there are some stories about those 2 subjects, but then there are some about rascism, and husbands realizing what wonderful people they're wives are.Rosamunde Pilcher was a won [...]


    19. I'm not a fan of those overly long books that give all kinds of descriptions and not much action. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really like this book. Maybe it is because they are short stories, but I think the author does an exceptional job of creating character, place and plot with just the right touch - not too much, not too little. Each story was thought provoking, so I limited myself to one a day. A nice, comforting read about a very pleasant world and very pleasant people.


    20. This is the only book I've read that I would recommend to all my GoodReads friends. That's why I gave it five stars.It is a collection of short stories: each one describes ordinary people and ordinary events. I really couldn't pick a favorite. I cried after reading:The Blue Bedroom An Evening to RememberIf I'd been pregnant I probably would have cried at every story -- a happy sort of cry, though. I also especially liked:Home for the DayTea with the ProfessorGilbertThe TreeThere wasn't a story I [...]


    21. This collection of 13 short stories had a few gems, but was mostly just average for me. These were published in magazines in the 1970′s & 80′s and they seemed a little dated to me. But maybe all of these stories of life in English villages added this feeling. I have read one Pilcher book and thought it was good but not great, so maybe she’s just not my taste. there's more on my blog stacybuckeye.wordpress/201


    22. Almost gave this book to Salvation Army the other day, thinking I would never read it. I am so glad I picked it up for a "light" reading break amidst "Bonhoeffer." I had forgotten how delightfully Pilcher writes, elucidating each prosaic event to the extraordinary & bringing tears to my eyes! What a wonderful respite!Enjoyable short stories of day-to-day family life with beautiful descriptions & insights to illustrate that "everyday life" is indeed "what it's all about"!


    23. I am not that fond of short stories, so to say I really liked this book is a compliment to the author. I chose this book at a used book store because I like many of Rosamunde Pilcher's novels, especially The Shell Seekers. As with any collection of stories, I liked some better than others. I especially reccommend "Gilbert", "Amita", and "An Evening to Remember". This collection covers race relations, being a foster parent, and a wide spectrum of human relationships.


    24. I love Rosamunde Pilcher. Every time I think she is finished writing, I feel a sense of loss. She is truly a remarkable writer. It has been quite a long time since I read her short stories, which made my time reading them this weekend in front of the fire an even bigger treat. I love Rosamunde Pilcher. Love her!


    25. I absolutely loved this book. It is a collection of heart warming short stories by one of my favorite authors - Rosamunde Pilcher. Each story is short enough to read before going to bed each night. This was great for me because I like to read before I go to bed but, I often find myself staying up late because I want "closure" when I am reading a novel. I would recommend this book.


    26. Delightful storiesI have been a fan of Rosamunde Pilcher's writing for a long time, but had never read this collection of short stories. She has such a great gift for creating believable and likeable characters and putting them in ordinary but interesting situations. I recommend this book and encourage readers to discover Rosamunde Pilcher.


    27. This is a collection of short stories by the author. I particularly liked the one about the wife whose husbands decides to work at home one day. He loves the smell of food cooking and thinks it's particularly for him and he sees how busy his wife is in the garden, etc. Then he realizes that she actually works all week long in order to be the great hostess she is on the weekends.
