Divnyi Svet (A Gathered Radiance)

description:

A biography of Alexandra Fyodorovna including extensive diary entries and letters.

 
(Title in Russian: Дивный Свет)

unique features:

A wealth of letters between Alexandra and her family (Nicholas, OTMA, and others) chronicling her courtship, married life, and imprisonment.

similar to:

Lifelong Passion

in my opinion:

For Russian speakers, a worthy companion to A Lifelong Passion, with a narrower focus.
