9780099490098: Tiare

In the Tahitian town of Faa'a the daily routine is relaxed and pleasantly predictable. But there's one thing you cannot escape and that's the watchful eye of the family. News travels fast on the 'coconut radio' and before you know it every cousin, in-law and neighbour who's been into the local store or bakery that day knows your business. And Materena Mahi, champion professional listener, has a problem that everyone's talking about: her husband, Pito, is a big zero. He has never impressed the family, and now the children are grown-up and she has her own successful radio show, even Materena is beginning to wonder why she still puts up with him. But big changes are on the horizon for the Mahi household. When baby Tiare is literally abandoned on the doorstep of her bewildered grandparents, Materena has some very new ideas about who's going to be left holding the baby...

About the Author:

Celestine Hitiura Vaite grew up in Tahiti and fell in love with a visiting Australian surfer when she was 16. Now 39 years old, she is the wife of the fanatic surfer, the mother of three boisterous boys and a sensitive daughter, and lives in a town on the South Coast of New South Wales - by the beach.

Review:

"An unforgettable heroine: Materena is passionate, clever and never without words of wisdom ... By the end, the reader is left wanting more, more, more" Kirkus Reviews "Written in the same good-natured tone as Alexander McCall Smith's bestsellers...Vaite captures, with admirable warmth and humour, the eccentricities of her homeland" Age "Vaite's work celebrates the vibrant fullness and humour of daily life in Tahiti and reflects her tremendous respect for the strength of the local women" Marie Claire "Sexy, gutsy and vivid as hibiscus" Canberra Times
