"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.

Especially after her gets a bit drunk and says something careless, something that hurts her so deeply she can't breathe..."--Back cover

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'.

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
