Resurrection - an entirely new life?
Nekhlyaudov, a nobleman, serving on a jury recognizes Maslova, a prostitute on trial for theft as the girl he seduced when a young man. He sees himself as guilty of her downfall and the novel is about his search for redemption.
It is a hefty novel concerned with truth and justice, guilt and innocence and corruption at all levels. I both listened and read this novel as it required concentration. The narrator's voice took some getting used to.
So glad I finally read this book and will certainly return to it again to remind myself of Tolstoys amazing philosophy - his meaning of life!
