Flower Cross: A Novel-Fiction by Elena Kolyadina

"Flower Cross" became the main intrigue of the premium "Russian Booker" and caused a flurry of responses ranging from"disgrace" and "blasphemy" to "real literature" and "high and bright".

Story of a young woman, burned in Totma in 1672 for "witchcraft" - a historical fact, he then formed the basis of the novel, everything else is "fiction, fantastic story", entangled around the principal characters of the novel: the girl Feodosiya, she also later blessed, stupid (durka), a young priest, Father Loggin and buffoon Istoma ...

"This thig is filled with oxygen, alternative medicine, this thing is absolutely positive. Not least because it's about love, about tenderness in very harsh circumstances. Beautifully written out life, although it is very old, almost pagan times. And the liveliness of this thing, the immediacy of the senses, open existence of heroes, of course, attract the attention of readers. And I am so reader".
Director and screenwriter Vadim Abdrashitov

This - a novel, if a novel to understand the presence of living, developing, well written characters (from major to minor, all - very good, especially father Loggin), well-built plot and - albeit imperfect, naive, comic, but the resulting IMAGE OF LANGUAGE. I emphasize - the image. This is a funny mix of everything in the world yet keeps the novel.
