Summary Thirty-year-old Piotr Alekseevich Marakulin lives a contented, if humdrum life as a financial clerk in a Petersburg trading company. He is jolted out of his daily routine when, quite unexpectedly he is accused of embezzlement and loses his job. This change of status brings him into contact with a number of women--the titular "sisters of the cross"--whose sufferings will lead him to question the ultimate meaning of the universe.
