I really liked this book. I chose it for my book club. You should know that it is quite sad. It deals with a man who supposedly died, and his family. I think you should read it if you get a chance.

"Yellow Flowers in the Antipodean Room", first published in London under the title "Rainbirds", is the story of a middle-aged family man who, while in a coma for two days, is mispronounced dead. With unparalelled insight and beauty, Miss Frame reveals the emotional sruggle the Rainbird family must go through, not in accepting Godfrey's death, but, rather, his "ressurection".
