When alone, he imagines conversations with those who died when a nineteenth century packet ship with approximately sixty passengers sank. He imagines their lives, their problems, their fears, and their hopes. In one of these conversations, he recalls his own efforts in the 1930s when he tried desperately to convince first his editors and later the public of the dangers of fascism and the inevitability of war. Few would listen. One of the passengers, a spinster, tells her story of seeking independence from a world dominated by men. There's also the case of a doctor who is banished for using unacceptable methods. David has given up on life, but the imaginary passengers give him hope for the future.
