Cozy Classic - War and Peace
THE COZY VERSION
After the Russian Army is crushed by the French at the Battle of Austerlitz, Prince Andrei Bolkonsky returns home, wounded and disillusioned. His friend Pierre Bezukhov, who has inherited his father’s fortune and become a Count, encourages Andrei to see the good in life, but Andrei remains unhappy.
Then one day, Andrei sees young Natasha Rostova running through a field, dressed in yellow, and is struck by her zest for life. A few years later at a New Year’s Eve ball, Pierre encourages Andrei to dance with Natasha. Enamored, Andrei proposes, but his skeptical father makes him put off the wedding for a year. During their year apart, Natasha proves inconstant, and the wedding is called off. Pierre comforts Natasha in her time of need.
In 1812, when Napoleon invades Russia, Andrei joins the fight. He serves at the Battle of Borodino, where the Russian army somehow withstands the mighty French, but Andrei is seriously wounded. Natasha takes care of him, and he forgives her. Pierre is taken prisoner by the French until the Russian winter finally destroys Napoleon’s army. When Pierre and Natasha see each other again, they realize they are in love!
