". follows Joana as she struggles to make real a long-aspired-to personal mythology based on the integration of nature and a life well-lived. Slowly she comes to terms with the completely unique life she has chosen, learning to respect Male's need for male camaraderie and to derive a certain happiness from a life of cooking, cleaning, fishing, and harvesting. Joana takes solace in her journal, passionately painting her world of exotica and domesticity. She also takes critical note of the less bewitching side of Fijian life: family squabbles, backbreaking labour, overwhelming heat and humidity, poverty." 9 000778
