The authors’ style is exciting, easy to read, and unique in its colorful descriptions, yet, it remains very much her own. For all of these reasons, when a person starts reading “Ah Those Dark Eyes…” regardless of his intellectual level, he cannot put the book aside until he has completely finished reading it.
Because of its philosophical, psychological, and finally, historical value, this work is exceptional, and a World Classic. It is fascinating reading, not only for Russians, but also for people of any nationality.

"Reference for the Books of Faina Blagodarova written by Natalia Tkachenko." ...I met with Faina’s creative writings first time through the women Internet sited, called “Russian women magazine”. There she presented the story called “Aquamarine”, which described the period of life of her immigration in Canada. That time I was surprised with the energy and persistency qualities of the main heroine of the story, which was the author herself. I could not even imagine that the portray of the attractive women, which watched at me from the screen is existing person in reality. At least that time I did not combine those two together. Next time I found out that Faina Blagodarova- is powerful author was when she read about my literary experience in the same magazine and asked advice how to publish the book through lulu.com. Those days we start to show interest in each other’s creative writings and exchanged our books, we both had been working on. Usually I am pretty resistant to read... More > the whole book of the unknown before to me author at once. I opened it in the middle, somewhere on page 120, thinking to get general idea of the author’ s style and…could not stopped reading. It was like powerful tornado broken suddenly through my window: such passion, and fury at the times she was growing in, desire to change non perfect world around her and to overcome all the troubles of her youth, her spiritual forces and believes in higher power made me so amazed, fascinated and even transformed on my own way. I did understand that if to love life, one need to do it so passionate, as Faina. And if to write – one need to show no mercy to herself, taken out the most hurting wounds, life can cut us with to the surface and burn them in the fire of own s intellect. Faina’s Blagodarova books “Oh, those black eyes”, “Nor Ellyn’s, nor Judas”, “Life and death in the necklace of eternity”, which already published are the strong instruments of transformation of every souls lost in their spiritual way. After reading those skillful literary masterpieces for the passed away epochs, where every step of the main heroines are like walking barefoot on the fire coal, suddenly one can grasp the idea, that to live in half force their own life’s is the crime against the nature, which granted the human being with the powerful potential to transform the circumstances and environment. To tell honestly, I am proud, that I am contemporary to Faina, that we both were witnesses of the huge changes in the Russian history in 20th century. And that although we never yet meet each other, I am proud, that Faina is so close to me, share many values I have and that she lives with me on the same continent, may be only 11 hours of driving distance apart between Florida, and Mississippi. I am happy, that Faina spread her energy and touched my life with her spiritual fire in the most positive way, as well as she touched the life’s and souls of those thousands and thousands of people, who were her readers all those years. Faina Blagodarova enriched all of us with her experiences, generously shared in her books. Thank you, dear Faina, for spreading the wisdom of your heart, you collected through your life! Faithfully yours Natalia Tkachenko, author of the book “Adaptation in immigration: Slav in America” on http://www.hometown.aol.com/ns990< Less
