Tolstoy, Leo: Father Sergius. v1, 6 Jan 2008
The opening paragraph:
In Petersburg in the eighteen-forties a surprising event occurred. An officer of the Cuirassier Life Guards, a handsome prince who everyone predicted would become aide-de-camp to the Emperor Nicholas I and have a brilliant career, left the service, broke off his engagement to a beautiful maid of honour, a favourite of the Empress's, gave his small estate to his sister, and retired to a monastery to become a monk.
What follows is a fascinating look of the mans life in Czarist Russia.
