Collage 701

Burdened by the financial misdealings of his father and a mother who cannot fathom a life without luxury, Nikolai is indebted to Sonya for running the household and appeasing the Countess, but distances himself from her...

In his heart it was as if he reproached her for being too perfect and having nothing to be reproached for. In her there was everything for which people are appreciated; but there was little of what would make him love her.
