Book Description

July 7 2006

Pito Tehana is a big zero—that's the word on the coconut radio.

His lovely wife, Materena, is now a big radio star, and yet she hasn't turned into a bigheaded faaoru. But Pito won’t even take her to a restaurant to celebrate. He just smirks and says, ‘I congratulate my wife in my own way.’ The Mahi family, never Pito’s biggest fans, whisper that they wouldn’t be surprised to see Materena trade him in. Especially after he gets a bit drunk and says something careless; something that hurts her so deeply she can't breathe…

In the keenly awaited third installment of Materena’s story, we see the Mahi and Tehana clans of Tahiti from the male perspective. And we find out that a man can do a lot with a second chance—if he's lucky enough to get one.

Product Description

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.
