It is a collection of short stories (in Russian language, though some of them could be found in other collections in English) where the main character Evgenia is a go-between. We can see her at different stage of her life (consequently - at different age): from little girl to an adult. She is tender, apprehensible, sensitive, a bit reclusive, yet agile and intelligent.
Novella is about the loss of faith in people, and finding the strenth to hold out against all the misfortunes.
НЕБУШКО или ЦВЕТЫ ДЛЯ МАМОЧКИ
Главная героиня, Евгения, или просто Женька, отказыватся от своей карьеры ради спасения самого любимого человека в ее жизни - Мамочки.

A View at the Sunset
Time went by.He eventually realised that had missed something very important in his life - a lady he had once alienated and insulted.But deceiving himself that way, he just made his life miserable.Some years later he met her by chance, followed to the new place of her living, understanding it was the only chance for him to remedy the situation that he had allowed to get out of his hands years ago.
The Sky and the Flowers for the Beloved...
The main character, Evgenia, turned down her own career in London, coming back home to Russia to look after her beloved, terminally ill Mother. Fear of losing the most precious person in her life not only helps Evgenia to fight the illness of her Mother – the absence of both cardiac valves. Alluding to the patent's age and lack of money doctors refused to carry on with operation on time...
The tale is about arrogance and pride of the main character, Arcady, - ambitious and at the same time rather charismatic young man, who, according to his own declaration, is unable to fall in love whatsoever. He just prefers to flirt with some smart, pretty and intelligent female. But once his chasing is over, he banally loses any interests to go on with the relationships.
