I don't think Russian books are hard to get, but as an English reader, I can't read a word.

Well...You can hardly get them at your local Borders or Barnes & Noble that is. But you can always enjoy the photos. Also foreign books always have a limited print run...

There's quite a lot about Grand Duchess Elizabeth as a nun in Lubov Millar's biography, Grand Duchess Elizabeth, New Martyr of the Communist Yoke, which has just been reprinted in an expanded edition (now 500 pages, including more than 150 photographs). She did make quite a number of pilgrimages to various monasteries and convents, often to seek counsel, as well as to holy sites in Russia. What an extraordinary spiritual heroine. No wonder so many people are drawn to know more about her. Millar's book also contains a brief history of her convent up to the present.

Benny, can you tell us how to order?

I bought in december the book of Kuchmaeva I told once about: Kogda jizn' istinstvuet: kultura blagotvorenia Velikoy kniaginy Elisabevety Feodorovny It is an expensive and beautiful book, a big and heavy album, well illustrated (not so much pictures of Ella, more of the places where she lived; the people she knew, archives documents...) and very informative. As Svetabel wrote one day, it is something like "hagiographic history" so history in a orthodox perspective. Some moments are quite subjective (I found, too subjective) but it worth the price as there are a lot of information from archives (newspapers...) The accent is on charity work of the Grand duke and Grand Duchess, as well as their culture life, place of culture and place of charity in their life, charity and culture as highpoint of their way of thinking and living. It is quite rare (only 1000 copies), but I crossed it in differents Moscow orthodox boostores.

On the official website of the Martha-Mary Convent is posted a news item about a new book of Saint Elizabeth and her visits to the Kazan region: http://www.mmom.ru/ru/news/events/index.php?id_7=345

It is also on the website for the Eparchy of Kazan: http://www.kazan.eparhia.ru/news/?ID=26356

Eric, it was actually the second book about Ella in french, as L. Miller's one was already translated and published 2 years ago.

There is also a recent book by Jean-Luc Besse, called "Elisabeth Feodorovna", which is a rumination on her life and work, so the new one is definitely not the first, even excluding translations

I think so, yes - I have it on my desk at work, but haven;t made time to read properly! The publisher is Via Romana - and actually I think the author's first name is Jean-Paul, not Jean-Luc, as I just wrote.
