Product Description


"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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Célestine Hitiura Vaite was born in Tahiti. The daughter of a Tahitian mother and a French father who went back to his country after military service, she grew up in her big extended family in Faa'a-Tahiti, where storytelling was part of everyday life and women overcame obstacles with gusto and humour.

Her first two novels about the Mahi and Tehana families, Breadfruit (which won the 2004 Prix Littéraire des étudiants) and Frangipani, have been published in the UK, the US, Canada, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Brazil, France, Germany and French Polynesia. Frangipani was shortlisted for the 2005 NSW Premier's Literary Awards.

Célestine now lives on the south coast of New South Wales. Tiare is her third novel.
