I am thinking maybe I should get this. Speaking Swedish (though not 100% fluently), I can read Danish as well to a degree. Looking at the website, the book says it is her 1917 - 1919 diaries, written while under housearrest,  day to day life under arrest, despair over the tsar's family, etc. It says it is well illustrated with previously unpublished photos.

If I get it (it is quite expensive at NZ$88 + postage on top of that...), and have time, I could post some sketchy translations from it...

I tried to purchase it, but discovered, sadly, they will not send to people that don't have a Danish address. A pity.
I guess there is always Amazon or ebay to try instead though.... :(

Hej hej!

(For those with no Scandinavian language knowledge, I wrote: Hi Dennis. Thanks for that, but I haven't spoken Swedish for many years and thus I have forgotten a lot. A pity...
Bye!)

Where did you try to purchase it.   I order Danish books from GAD  www.gad.dk   They have credit cards and send outside Denmark.

Thanks for letting us know here about this book. Perhaps one can be optimistic and hope that an English translation may be a worthwhile marketing exercise.

I got a copy last week ... excellent illustrations.  But I do not hold out hope for an English translation.   :-/
