The Years by Virginia Woolf
The Years follows the lives of the Pargiters, a large middle-class London family, from an uncertain spring in 1880 to a party on a summer evening in the 1930s. We see them endure and remember heartbreak, loss, radical change, stifling conformity, marriage, and regret.

Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
Mrs Dalloway vividly portrays one day in a woman’s life. Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the last-minute details of a party she is to give that evening. Yet, as she readies her house, she is flooded with memories and re-examines the choices she has made over the course of her life.

Orlando follows a passionate young nobleman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry, filled with the colorful delights of Queen Elizabeth’s court. By the close, he will have transformed into a modern 36-year-old woman, and three centuries will have passed.
