As the Titanic sank and 1,000 men prepared to die, J Bruce Ismay, the ship's owner and inheritor of the White Star fortune, jumped into a lifeboat and rowed away to safety. His reputation never recovered and he never spoke of his beloved ship again. Now, using never-before-seen letters, author Frances Wilson explores Ismay's need to tell his story and to find a way of living with the consciousness of lost honour.
