Monsieur Ka by Vesna Goldsworthy

An elderly Russian exiled to London and the lonely wife of an army officer may seem an unlikely pair but when the young Frenchwoman comes to work as his companion, Monsieur Ka reveals his story. He is an amalgam of many names: the Monsieur Carr he calls himself now and the Prince Karenin he was. This is a magical London love story entwined with Tolstoy’s great tragedy.
