I believe she wrote mainly in English in her diaries.   The last entry she wrote on the night of the murders was in English.  I only have read excerpts from A Life Long Passion. Not sure about online though.  Good Luck in finding.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

I don't know where to find it online, but I have right now beside me, a copy of "The Last Diary of Tsaritsa Alexandra", from my library.  Does your library have it?  Also, have you checked out the home page here?

Re  above Post:  Of course, if you reside in the USA, and one's local library does not alternatively have the "hard" volume, and you wish such, it can always be requested by Inter-Library Loan for which you may keep it for a period of 30 days (usually not renewable, though).  The cost is roughly $2US. In addition, if one lives near a university, you may borrow a copy from there, but will have to pay generally a yearly fee for the priviledge, being a non-student of that university       Regards,  AP.

I don't live either in the us either in America. I asked my local library but it has never been published in italian and they don't have a Inter Library Loan with countries abroad. That's why i have so many difficulties having infos about the romanovs: all the books written about them are in english, library don't have them and i'm cmpelled to buy them on Amazon, that becomes quite expensive because of the shipping costs!
But if you can suggest me a good edition from Amazon...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=last+diary+of+alexandra    I got a copy for some times, and it was very hard to get it, because in those years it was only puplished and buyable in the US. and the price was enourmous. I reread it from time to time, and it's ablout one of my favourites.

Paul Gilbert's Books might be able to help you with a copy.

Here is Alexandra diary from 1917 and 1918 (translated in russian language) :

http://emalkrest.narod.ru/txt/alx-dvn/1917.htm
http://emalkrest.narod.ru/txt/alx-dvn/1918.htm

Google translation should be enough for non russian-speaker because the "syntax" is really really simple. In fact there are not a lot of real sentences.

Thanks Burger!!! Oh it's not a problem; i'm a russian major, i should be able to read it without a translator... but for good chance i've ordered a copy of it in english (the one by massie); not for simplicity (they are both foreign languages to me) but only because it's its original language and my philologist spirit adviced me so...  :)

You're right, and a good translation will never be like an original version, it's not authentic words. There's a slovak proverb : the more languages you speak, the closer you get to human being.
And reading this on the link I sent is a real challenge for he eyes... !
