Detailed plot synopsis reviews of No More Sea

Twenty-four-year old ship's stewardess Esther Mason is tired of waiting. For several years, she has had a relationship with fellow steward John Addison. But John is reluctant to give up working at sea, and Esther wonders if he will ever want to marry her and settle down; it always seems to be just "one more voyage." Now, they have both been assigned to work in first class on the maiden voyage of the Titanic, and Esther knows she won't be able to avoid John forever; they need to find out where their relationship really stands. Meanwhile, Esther finds herself becoming involved with Philip Winslow, a wealthy passenger in first class. Philip had led something of a wild life, but finds himself drawn to Esther and wanting to become a better man for her. John sees what he thinks is a relationship developing between Philip and Esther, and fears the worst. Esther struggles to decide between the two as the Titanic sails toward tragedy.
