Overview
-

A guard had stepped back into the path of a train and been crushed beneath the wheels. He had been killed instantly. When Anna Karenina arrives at the scene of a horrible accident, it is the beginning of a new and troubling time in her life. Will she ever find happiness with the man she loves? Anna’s sister in law, Darya Oblonsky, is threatening to leave her selfish husband. Is Anna able to save their marriage? Anna’s young son, Sergey, is sure that one day his mother will return to him. Can the pair ever be reunited? Konstantin Levin is determined to marry Kitty, but she is dazzled by the lively and handsome Count Vronsky. Levin prefers a quiet life in the countryside to dinner parties and dances. Which of them will she finally choose?
