"Serving on the jury at a murder trail, Prince Dmitri Nekhlyudov is devasted when he sees the prisoner - Katyusha, a young woman he seduced and abandoned years before. As Dmitri faces the consequences of his actions, he decides to give up his life of wealth and luxury to devote himself to rescuing Katyusha, even if it means following her into exile in Siberia. But can a man truly find redemption by saving another person? Tolstoy's most controversial novel, Resurrection (1899), is a scathing indictment of injustice, corruption and hyprocrisy at all levels of society. Creating a vast panorama of Russian life, from peasants to aristocrats, bureaucrats to convicts, it reveals Tolstoy's magnificent storytelling powers."--Page 4 of cover.

Tolstoy is one of the best writers of all time and here he criticizes the law, penal system and the Church. A great read.
