The life and history of the Partiger family is explored in snapshots of a single day from the 1880s through the 1930s.

The final novel to be published by Virginia Woolf in her lifetime, The Years was initially structured as part of a novel-essay intended to resolve some of the loose ends from A Room of One’s Own, but was separated from the non-fiction portions when the structure of a novel-essay proved to be problematic. The essay portions of the manuscript were later published as Three Guineas.
