Reading for Wednesday, 25 March
And here we have more descriptions of Princess Marya, this time at church.
But the real highlight of this chapter is when Nikolai, desperate to work out his women situation, decides to pray. (And not a silly prayer this time, he tells himself, like when we were kids and we prayed for snow to turn into sugar. . .)
And lo and behold, he gets a fateful letter from Sonya. How nice of her just to give in like that and let Nikolai go. Well, that’s all settled . . . Or is it?
