A Handful of Blossoms

By Lara Biyuts

Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


The historical fiction A Handful of Blossoms is 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. Set in Europe, the story is about 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.) In my novella, I study the interesting case when a gay man is enforced to get married to a female (dynastic marriage) and what comes of the unnatural act. First of all, the novella is a story of a young thing, who learns the world. Also, the novella may be called paranormal adventure, because the mysterious undead, who appears in the winter tale written by my main character in my latest novel Silver Thread Spinner, appears in my new story as well. As a love story, the novella is most original, because the heroine knows true love after marriage and not before, unlike it’s in the most of romances. The plot has several tales heard by the heroine and written down by her, with the tales showing the pagan culture of Central Europe being a piece of information for those who want to know more of the folklore.
