A decade after the Civil War, a cynical Southern lawyer and his suffragette cousin become rivals for the attentions of a charismatic speaker. Basil Ransom seeks a conventional marriage with Verena Tarrant while Olive Chancellor attempts to isolate her protégée from the society of men. Master storyteller Henry James transports readers to an 1870s New England setting for a compelling tale of politics, feminism, and a nascent lesbian attraction.
