; "This novel, as its title indicates, is intended to illustrate the place which, through all the ages hitherto, woman has held in relation to man, the place assigned to her by law, custom, and even religion. Mary O'Neill, a devout Catholic, is brought up in a convent in Rome, and then married, before sex has been explained to her, to a dissolute man of rank. On realizing her position she rebels, refuses herself to her husband, but to prevent scandal, continues to live under his roof. Later on, love is born in her, but it is for another and much worthier man. What is she to do? It is a sin to love anyone but her husband, divorce is against her religion. She passes through a great struggle. At length she runs away, a child is born, and then a new struggle of a mother with an 'unwanted child.' Salvation comes to her, without the violation of any law of state or church."
