Description

When Jean Sasson's book Princess: Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia was published, it became an immediate international best seller. It sold to 43 countries and spent 13 weeks on The New York Times best seller list. Now, in this long-awaited, compelling new book, Sasson and Princess Sultana return to tell the world what it means to be a Saudi woman today. Through advances in education and with access to work, Saudi women are breaking through barriers; they are becoming doctors, social workers, business owners. Major steps forward have been made. But this is not the whole story. Sadly, despite changes in the law, women are still subjected to terrible suppression, abuse, and crimes of psychological and physical violence. For many, the struggle for basic human rights continues. Princess, More Tears To Cryreveals the intimate struggles of Saudi women inside one of the richest, most conservative kingdoms in the world. These are stories of triumph and heartbreak amongst the highest- and lowest-born. Princess Sultana speaks frankly about her strong-willed daughters, her beloved husband and the contentious Al-Saud family whose daily battles about what it means to be a woman in Saudi Arabia mirror those of the society at large. Princess, More Tears To Cry is an unforgettable journey into the hearts and minds of Saudi women, and will be forever etched into the memory of listeners.

Amazing series!

These books by Jean Sasson have affected me in ways no other book has. Being a western woman with such freedom I was appalled and sickened by some of the stories in this book. The stories of the five year old girl who was raped to death won't leave my mind. The stories of female genital mutilation are horrendous and stay with the girl all her life causing medical problems and pain all her life. It makes want to do something. If I was rich I would give until it hurt. Thank goodness Princess Sultana, whoever she really is, does have wealth beyond measure and can and does help these women and children being abused by their own families. Read it. It will change your life.

EXCELLENT must read!

I am very familiar with Sasson's "Princess" series and am so very delighted to have listened to the audio of the book. I spoke with J. Sasson years ago, asking if there would be a continuation. At that time she said no, but I am VERY pleased to see an "update" 4th publication now. Thanks sooooo much Jean! ^.^

The best book in the series

This is the best volume in the series. it's the most contemporary one of the 4.

I listened to all 4 volumes in 2 days span and the previous books were fresh in memory. This one also feels less sanitized.

The World is blessed to have Princess Sultana. I wish her a long, happy, and rewarding life.

Riveting Details

Excellent detail, very fascinating! My studies of Arabic language and culture made this an amazingly gripping subject to learn how even stature and the highest privilege don't provide protection.
