May Book Club - A Gentleman in Moscow

The May book selection is A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. I read this book earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. A beautiful story of a Russian aristocrat imprisoned in a Moscow hotel who manages to build a wonderful life and find great happiness despite losing his wealth, position, and liberty. I listened to the audiobook, and the voice actor was absolutely delightful. Although his accent is British rather than Russian, he expertly conveyed the grace and gentility of the protagonist. It's a heartwarming tale that I think you'll love -perfect for springtime!
