Katharine Hilbery is beautiful and privileged but uncertain of her future. She must choose between becoming engaged to the oddly prosaic poet William, and her dangerous attraction to the lower-class Ralph. As she struggles to decide, the lives of two other women - women's rights activist Mary Datchet and Katharine's mother, struggling to weave together the documents, events and memories of her father's life into a biography - impinge on hers with unexpected and intriguing consequences. Virginia Woolf's light, delicate second novel is both a love story and a social comedy, yet it also subtly undermines these traditions, questioning a woman's role and the very nature of experience.

Katharine Hilbery and Mary Dachet are two young women of marriageable age, and although both have prospects, they also have other areas of interest—Katharine is passionate about her intellectual pursuits and Mary works on a campaign for women's suffrage. Both women must learn to balance their expectations for their futures and their prospects for marriage with their own passions and happiness.

One of Virginia Woolf's lesser known, earlier novels, Night and Day relies less heavily on the 'stream of consciousness' style that is so distinctive in the author's later novels.
