Fritz, the novel’s protagonist, is the son of a baron who owned a large estate with many servants. Fritz’s birth was very unusual, planned in secret and resulted in hatred. A year spent in a monastery as a young man changes Fritz’s life and gives him the focus he was missing.

Young Fritz sets off to America on a steamship, and while aboard meets Victoria, a young British woman also in search of a better life in America. The two quickly fall in love and marry, building a new home for themselves in Ohio.

As the years pass, Fritz and Victoria become adoptive parents to an abused little girl, get involved with a runaway slave and have altercations with local officials about opening up their home to those less fortunate. Slowly, the community comes to accept Fritz and his unconventional family.
