Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia

by Jean P. Sasson

A shocking biography that will have you angry and sad. Sultana offers an inside view into the life of a Saudi Princess in the 80's. What I liked most about this book was her descriptions of the lives of women in the upper, middle, and lower class. I will put a warning however that there is a lot of violence against women and girls, including multiple rapes, for those women who might have flash-backs reading this sort of thing.
