The story follows the ComingOfAge of [[GenderBlenderName Stephen]] [[OverlyLongName Mary Olivia Gertrude Gordon]], who from an early age fails to conform to society's expectations of an upper-class Englishwoman, and gradually comes to realise that she is in fact an "invert". From the rolling hills of her countryside home to the literary society of London, from the salons of GayParee to the trenches of the [[WorldWarI First World War]], Stephen struggles to find love and purpose in a world cruelly hostile to her "unnatural" desires.

* LadyLooksLikeADude: Stephen essentially goes through male puberty (minus the extra facial/body hair) despite being female; on top of being literally as tall, broad-shouldered, narrow-hipped, and barrel-chested with muscle as her father (who himself is a big man), she also has his heavy, masculine facial features (particularly his brow ridge and cleft chin) which only get more pronounced as she reaches adulthood.
