Im Mittelpunkt der Handlung steht Olive Chancellor, eine noch junge, aber nicht mehr ganz junge Dame der Bostoner Gesellschaft. Sie sieht ihr Lebensziel im Kampf gegen Vorurteile und Konventionen, und sie setzt sich besonders mit allem Eifer dafür ein, die Frauen von der Knechtschaft der Männer zu befreien und ihnen Anerkennung im öffentlichen Leben zu verschaffen. Sie gehört einem Kreis »fortschrittlich« gesinnter Damen in Boston an. Olives Kampf um gesellschaftliche Ideale wird zu einem persönlichen, als ihr Verwandter, Basil Ransom, ein Mann aus dem Süden und zum Ärger Olives höchst konservativ, um die Liebe eines jungen Mädchens wirbt, für das sie eine leidenschaftliche Freundschaft hegt und das sie zu ihren erhabenen Zielen bekehren will. Sie versucht diese Verena Tarrant, die sie mit vielen Zeichen der Zuneigung überschüttet, mit allen Mitteln von Basil fernzuhalten.
