Surrounded by great opulence and luxury from they day they were born, but stifled by the restrictive lifestyle imposed on them, they have reacted in desperate ways.; Their stories, and those which concern other members of Princess Sultanas huge family, are set against a rich backcloth of Saudi Arabian culture and social mores, which the book depicts. It details, for example, the ritual of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, as the princess and her family journey to this holiest of cities.

In her campaign to improve the lot of her own daughters, Princess Sultana strikes a chord amongst those women who are lucky enough to have the freedom to speak out for themselves.; The author
