A silly but likeable WW II comedy which opens as a young Marine, Lancaster, faces a court martial. Through testimony we learn the strange series of events that have catapulted Lancaster into his predicament. Two weeks before the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Lancaster went AWOL in an effort to stop his buddy Connors from marrying Mayo, a girl who works in a nightclub. Lancaster managed to snatch Connors away from the altar in time, and the two GIs tried to catch up to their unit with Mayo in tow. The trio wind up on a remote South Sea island and are forced to pose as deserters to avoid capture by the Vichy Frenchman, Askin, who rules the territory. While Lancaster tries to dream up a plan so they can rejoin their unit, Connors remains determined to marry Mayo. Unfortunately for Connors and Mayo, Lancaster doesn't give the lovebirds a chance, because he soon begins wreaking havoc on the island. Lancaster frees some French prisoners, steals a yacht from a German agent, grabs the romantic duo, and sets sail. On the high seas they manage to engage a Japanese destroyer and sink it, thus ruining an important enemy invasion. During the battle Connors is killed, leaving only Lancaster and Mayo to be rescued by the Allied forces. After hearing the testimony and examining the evidence, Lancaster is cleared, leaving him and Mayo to begin a romance. SOUTH SEA WOMAN is a fast-paced adventure comedy that exploits Lancaster's athletic derring-do as well as his ability to handle romance and light comedy.
Katherine Winter doesn't believe in miracles--she believes in facts. A former minister, Katherine turned her back on the cloth after losing her young daughter and husband while doing missionary work in the Sudan, and now seeks answers through scientific investigation rather than prayer. As a university professor, she has become the foremost debunker of supposed miracles, called to sites all over the world to investigate weeping statues, wall stains resembling saints and palms that bleed. And so far, there is no divine mystery she hasn't solved. But when small-town schoolteacher Doug Blackwell seeks her help with a series of bizarre occurrences the townspeople believe to be sent by God, Katherine and her partner Ben come to learn that sometimes miracles can be treacherous, and the line between faith and superstition is dangerously thin. Hidden among the woods and swamplands of Louisiana, Haven is a town where the rules of reason seem to have been rewritten. A child has died and the river has turned to blood, which is only the beginning of what appears to be a revisiting of the Biblical ten plagues upon the town. For the first time in her professional career, Katherine can't explain these phenomena with science. The townspeople believe an enigmatic child named Loren McConnell has brought God's wrath to their doorstep, but what they see as a harbinger of evil, Katherine sees as a lost child needing her help. The more she is drawn into the dark heart of the mystery, the more Katherine discovers her own role in a conspiracy that threatens to shroud the world in darkness.
