Sam Coulson’s ambition is to have the biggest trading concern in 19th Century Whitby and will do anything to achieve this and see that his firm will be in safe hands when he decides to retire. His friend since boyhood, Seaton Campion, now a ‘friendly’ rival in the maritime world, has no sons to succeed him so Sam sees a marriage between his eldest and favourite son, Martin, and Campion’s eldest daughter, Alicia, as a way to amalgamate the two firms. But Martin is lost in the Arctic. Sam demands his second son, Ben, takes Martin’s place. Alicia is pleased for it is Ben she really loves, but Ben has secretly declared his love for Ruth Holmes whose father was captain of the whaler from which Martin was lost and who Sam blames for that loss.

Ambition threatens many lives and relationships until the unexpected happens in Whitby and the Arctic yields the truth.
