Summary
"Against the exotic background of the South Pacific are set tales of love and war, tales of men and women caught in the drama of life: the young Marine who falls madly in love with a beautiful Tonkinese girl; the American nurse, Nellie, and French painter Emile de Becque; Lieutenant Bill Harbison, who isn't what he seems; a young man from Ohio whose life is falling apart until he finds a reason to live. As told by a young naval officer who travels from island to island, their stories depict the sorrows and triumphs of life against the background of a tropical paradise"--From publisher description
