PRINCESS A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia. Princess A New York Times bestseller named as "one of the best books written by women.
During their time in the Middle East, the Sassons made many friends, including members of the royal Al-Saud family, who visited the hospital. The most notable of these friendships was between Sasson and "Princess Sultana", the princess about whose life The Princess Trilogy tells.
Sasson is currently based in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a work of propaganda funded by the Kuwaiti government which was allegedly based on interviews Sasson had conducted with pseudonymous Kuwaitis who had fled to Cairo, Saudi Arabia, London and Washington, D.
Advertisements in the major newspapers and on network television featured the book with the accompanying tag line: The identity of Sultana a pseudonym is concealed to assure her safety. In , a lawsuit was brought against the author of the book alleging plagiarism. UK Title: As second-generation members of the royal family who have benefited from Saudi oil wealth, Maha and Amani are surrounded by untold opulence and luxury from the day they were born and which they take for granted.
In Princess Sultana's Daughters , Sasson exposes the stifling and unbearably restrictive lifestyle imposed on these women. They have reacted in equally desperate ways.

UK title: When Sultana's niece is forced into an arranged marriage with a cruel, depraved older man and a royal cousin's secret harem of sex slaves is revealed, Sultana's attempts at intervention in their various plights are thwarted.

Risking her personal status and wealth, she takes a stand against the complacency of her male relatives over the child's fate. Ultimately, in Princess Sultana's Circle , Sultana and her sisters vow to form a circle of support that will surround and shelter abused women and girls. This is a historical fiction book based in the Middle East, about two families; one Palestinian and the other Jewish.
The story details how both families were affected by devastating tragedy and adversity, as well as how they overcame it. When Mayada Al-Askari was assigned to be Jean Sasson's translator in , during a trip to Baghdad , she could never have imagined where her friendship with this prominent Iraqi woman would take her.
The two women kept in contact until, in , Mayada was arrested by Saddam Hussein 's secret police.
Allegations that Mayada had been producing anti-regime pamphlets were brought forth, and she was confined in Iraq's brutal Baladiyat Prison for over a month, fated to visit the torture rooms and wait crowded cells.
In cell 52, Myada was imprisoned with 17 other "shadow women" whose lives had similarly been interrupted with false allegations and hardships. Sasson tells their stories.
In this true love story, Sasson focuses on the life of a Kurdish woman living in Iraq and the broader story of ethnic tensions between the Kurds, Iraqis, Turks, Iranians, and Syrians. The country that I came to, live in and left a few years back was a stark contrast to the hear-say and media portrayal of late. In fact, I w As a person who had spent some time in Saudi Arabia as an expatriate, I can say that many elements of this book had indeed lived up to match some of my experiences there.
In fact, I was surprised of how much improved things are in a rather conservative country. Things have changed for sure.
It should be noted that this was a tale being told from the perspective of a Princess, and rewritten by the author. Thus, it is hard to read this book without sensing a tinge of bias especially me knowing her central theme. Or, of how much the story had been rewritten to create a more shocking drama.
You be the judge of the story. This bestselling book has been called "riveting" and "heart-wrenching. 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: As second-generation members of the royal family who have benefited from Saudi oil wealth, Maha and Amani are surrounded by untold opulence and luxury from the day they were born and which they take for granted.
Stifled by the unbearably restrictive lifestyle imposed on them, they have reacted in equally desperate ways. Their dramatic and shocking stories are set against a rich backcloth of Saudi Arabian culture and social mores which are depicted with equal color and authenticity.
Throughout, Sultana never tires of her quest to expose the injustices which her society levels against women. Princess Sultana once more strikes a chord amongst all women who are lucky enough to have the freedom to speak out for themselves. Jean Sasson paints a horrifying reality for women of the desert kingdom. It is a haunting look at the danger of Saudi male dominance and the desperate lives of the women they rule.
