A year has passed since Materena Mahi's career took a surprising turn from champion professional cleaner to champion professional listener, 'star of the radios'.

With the children grown-up and the radio show a huge success, for the first time in her life Materena has had little to worry about, she's even found time to take driving lessons. But one day all this changes when a listener asks Materena just exactly what the Tahitian way means to her. As the calls flood in, Materena realises how many of her women listeners are torn in half over their identities and families

"Her name is Materena Mahi, and she's the best listener in Tahiti." "Materena starts her new job as a professional cleaner at the same time she becomes the mother of her beautiful baby girl.

What matters to Materena is passing along her own special wisdom." "Everyone around Materena seems to admire her cleverness and generosity, her appreciation of Tahitian tradition - everyone except perhaps Leilani, who has her own ideas about love, family, and island ways."--BOOK JACKET
