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.

Most terrifying story ever told
I wouldn't recommend this book for the faint of heart. It's hard to continue reading it.
I liked that the fact that she took the time to write down and record the truth. It's hard to put everything in words
She stayed true to the emotions in the characters
It made me cry and lose sleep over it. I can't believe that this still happens across the world. It's terrifying to know this let alone go through it. I still don't understand why other countries are not interfering with this.
