 A Handful of Blossoms. Written in form of a diary, which genre (epistolary, confessional) was so popular in the 18th century and which sounds so comprehensible in our time of blogging, web-diaries and web-journals, the novella A Handful of Blossoms may be called a love story. A story of a young bride and her weird marriage. Time: 1764, a year after the Seven Years War (this first global military conflict took place much earlier than WWI, and it may be called the First World War, in fact.) Set in Europe, the story is historical fiction, in which Author studies the interesting case when a gay man is enforced to get married to a female (dynastic marriage) and what comes of this unnatural act. (Warning: no consensual sex, no sex relationship at all between the spouses.) Nothing playful, but the book is a story of a young thing, who learns the world. Nothing unworldly, but the mysterious and mighty undead, who appears in the winter tale of the novel Silver Thread Spinner, by Lara Biyuts, appears in this new story as well. The image of the undead is neither Author’s attempt to follow the fashion nor Author’s contribution to the modern day literary taste; Author merely loves speculating on the subject.

 “Lara Biyuts’ writing is deep and multi layered. Expect to read this book a few times in order to glean all the mysteries and interlocking energies held inside the writing. I don’t want to give away one of the more interesting twists of the book, but suffice it to say it holds a few surprises.” (Maggie Mack Books)

 “I found the story-telling through this narrator to be very well done and all of the characters had quite a bit of depth to them.  Biyuts did a very good job in her writing of this book.  I could actually see this book being studied as literature in a university class.” (Sam Kasbrick's Reviews)

 “I would definitely recommend this book to fans of historical fiction or maybe to fans of old-school Gothic literature.” (Sam Kasbrick's Reviews)

 “Complex story, complex writing style, but if you have the patience, and the courage to start it, I think you will find this is a very original insight in an uncommon era and setting for a novel.” (Elisa Rolle Reviews)

“Lara Biyuts comes to us from the great tradition of Nabokov and Conrad, enriching our literature in English with the rich cosmopolitain perspecitve of the East European tradition leading back to Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. Like those great masters she takes us also into the shadow world of sexuality with its hidden psychology, possession and sensual revelations.” (Robert Sheppard, Author of the novel Spiritus Mundi,
“The secret of Lara Biyuts is her tales. The secret of her tales is their charm. The secret of the charm is Lara Biyuts.” (Les Hudson,
