The story takes place at the opening of a new century, one that held forth all kinds of promises, especially for women. In this post-Victorian Fifth Avenue milieu, Lily Bart, an unmarried woman of 29 with dwindling prospects, needs a husband badly.

Lily is unsuccessful in her search for a haven, because she values her emotional and financial independence. To her eternal sorrow, it is other women, the doyennes of high society, who obliquely, ruthlessly, keep that independence forever out of poor Lily's reach
