From the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Civility – a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.

On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol.

Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval.

Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?

    This was an amazing story and so beautifully written. I didn’t want it to end the descriptions were so incredible, I felt as is I was in Moscow at that moment in time. Would love a sequel!

    I really enjoyed this novel. It was so nice to read such a rich and elegantly written text, not many books can claim this. The story is delightful and the characters are wonderful. You'll fall in love with the Count, a true Gentleman.
