This new book will include letters, postcards and telegrams to Alix's friend Toni Becker.  :) If you are referring to "Alix an Gretchen", including telegrams and letters from the Empress to Margarthe von Fabrice, you're right that it is not the same book. Margarethe von Fabrice was not really a 'childhood' friend of the Empress, by the way. She came to work as a lady-companion in Darmstadt on 18 June 1888, when Alix was already 16 years old, whereas Alix's friendship with Toni Becker went back to a much younger age.

As far as I know, it will. It will be easy to order a copy  from the States, though, once the ISBN number is known.  :)

I got my copy yesterday and I can tell you, this Book is JUWEL and a MUST HAVE !!!!

It is full of private details of Alix and her Family, from her own Letters. The Book has more than 170 pages and there are many pictures.
As I am a Royal pic Collector for more than 20 years I was astonished to find so many Pictures of Alix and her Family I have never seen before. And they are in best quality....

greetings
