Publisher's Summary

Princess describes the life of Princess Sultana Al Sa'ud, a princess in the royal house of Saudi Arabia. Hidden behind her black veil, she is a prisoner, jailed by her father, her husband, and her country.
Sultana tells of appalling oppressions, everyday occurrences that in any other culture would be seen as shocking human rights violations: 13-year-old girls forced to marry men five times their age; young women killed by drowning, stoning, or isolation in the "women's room". Princess is a testimony to a woman of indomitable spirit and courage, and you will never forget her or her Muslim sisters.
A New York Times best-seller, Princess was named one of the 500 Great Books by Women Since 1300. It was also an Alternate Selection of the Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club and a Reader's Digest Selection.

Wow...

Such a powerful book. To hear a full story of this princess' experience just brings you in and really makes you feel for her. I hope something can be done for women in Saudi Arabia... :(

Below expectations

Maybe I missed it, but I did not get to hear what became of her. I have some issue of veracity about some of the things said because I have some knowledge of Saudi Arabia and Islamic traditions. Example, the author said that women cannot enter the mosque to pray, that is not correct. Every mosque has a partition in the back for women to pray at the same time as men. At home, women will pray behind the men.

Amazing story

I read this book many years ago and found it just as compelling hearing this compelling story.

Although I found the narration to be extremely robotic. Apart from that, great.

Harsh Reality of a Womens life in Saudi

Interesting read. Left hanging at the end somewhat. Story tempered somewhat by the fact that princess Sultana has access to incredible wealth however brings meaning to the concept that money cant buy happiness

Powerful!!

This is one of the most powerful, fascinating and beautifully written books I have ever read/listened to in my life. This book gives you a personal and in depth insight into the world of a Saudi Arabian princess, & also a look into a world that is completely dominated by men and religion. The story is touching and complex a very interesting read from start to finish.
