In the title story, fourteen-year-old Emily is forced to deal with her mother's beautiful bedroom becoming her stepmother's after her mother dies. Young Oliver discovers the dark secret of the man who lives in 'The House on the Hill', when his sister goes into early labour on the day of a wild storm; and a lonely young widow's life is to be changed when her children arrange a 'Tea with the Professor'. In this wonderful collection of short stories, Rosamunde Pilcher displays her warmth, humour, and deep sensitivity to human frailties, joys and fears.

Rosamunde Pilcher has had a long and distinguished career as a novelist and a short story writer, but it was her phenomenally successful novel, The Shell Seekers, that captured the hearts of all who read it and won her international recognition as one of the best-loved storytellers of our time. Her most recent bestseller, Coming Home, was also made into a television filmFrom AudioFile:
Rosamunde Pilcher's writing always feels like a soft chair after a hard day. Her plots and characters offer insights into the human condition with grace and tenderness. June Whitfield narrates The Blue Bedroom and Other Stories, which explores themes such as the death of a loved one, overcoming prejudice, understanding children and appreciating one's spouse. Each story ends on a note of love, faith, understanding or hope. While generally following the Pilcher tradition of delicate etiquette, Whitfield has an annoying habit of imparting squeaky condescension to the dialogue of any character under the age of 21. R.P.L.
