Can Ambrose bring about political reform through his writing?
Having inherited his mother’s fighting spirit, Ambrose Longe uses his independent newspaper, The Clarion, to argue for political and social reform.
Sensing an opportunity, his uncle, William Howarth — an aspiring M.P. — offers financial subsidy to The Clarion in return for political support.
Despite mounting debts, Ambrose refuses to compromise his principles. But just when his prospects look bleakest, the wise and wealthy Naomi Blüm arrives in Millbridge.
Recognising his talent, Naomi offers to invest in a new and improved newspaper with Ambrose at the helm. And so a new tour de force, The Northern Correspondent, is born…
