Overview

The Princess Trilogy consists of Princess, A True Story; Princess Sultana's Daugthers; and Princess Sultana's Circle. Sultana is a Saudi Arabian princess, born to uncountable wealth. She has four mansions on three continents, her own private jet, glittering jewels, designer dresses galore. But she has no freedom, no control over her own life, no value but as a bearer of sons. Sultana is a member of the Saudi royal family, closely related to the king. For the sake of her daughters, she has decided to take the risk of speaking out about the life of women in her country, regardless of their rank. She must hide her identity for fear that the religious leaders in her country would call for her death to punish her honesty. Only a woman in her position could possibly hope to escape from being revealed and punished. Although Sultana lives with constant fear of retribution, her passion to provide her daughters a better life transcends her fear and fuels her desire for change.

    If i could give this more stars, i would

    Im a catholic and i think its horrible the way the women there are treated. Princess Sultana should be heard out by everyone, and her and her fellow women deserve to be free. Her life is glamorous, yet tragic. She was born a Royal Princess, in a country where women are treated horrible, i recomend these books to everyone.

    Trapped

    I think the Sultana books are excellent because she's so determined to change the way that women are treated. They always live a in male dominated world and have no power to change things. And yet they're horribly treated.

    A Gripping and Shocking Page-Turner

    I'd heard first-hand of the atrocities of the Saudi justice system from my father's travels there, but his was a one-sided, masculine-oriented tale. This series is a desperately needed light into a dark and ignored place of women's history, a place still quite alive. Nothing is more tragic than to think of a culture's worth of women living and dying in silence and solitude, with not one trace left for the future to know. Sultana fights to save herself, and she fights to save others, and I promise you won't be able to put this trilogy down until you've laughed and cried your way to the end.

    a woman who worked in Saudi Arabia

    As a young woman I worked in the Kingdom and saw first hand many of the atrocities imposed on the women. For a different perspective I recommend 'Single in Saudi' by Genia. It is the rollicking and revealing story of a young American nurse running amuck in Saudi. She got away with all the things Sultana raled against.

    Incredibly Informative!!!

    The Princess Trilogy was an absolutely riviting series. Sasson grabs and holds your attention throughtout. The series really makes you thankful of the freedom we enjoy in the USA! My heart goes out for the women behind the veil.

    she deserves freedom

    I am not a muslim I am a christain I am 16 years old.I want to say it makes me feel bad when someone is treated like this.everyone deserves there freedom even she does.Princess is just a name.If i had to become prince or king and go through all that or treat someone like that I would give it to someone else.Nomatter how much money I could get.I also think the king should give her ,her freedom.He would not like it if someone had him locked up like that and could not have any freedom.Or cant go out side with out being followed.thats how I feel.

    its unbelieveable

    well i am a muslim too. i never thought such things happened especially in a place like Saudia Arabia (its the place where our holy Kaba stands). one way or the other this is where our prophet lived... this is a place where most of the islamic history took place. its so ..so outragious. how can people do things in the name of islam, which islam doesnt even supports. many stories i have read are somehow related to islam. islam is not wht they state. islam is much more. i hope i'll be able to do something about it in the near future... and through this book people all around thw world will somehow (directly or indirectly) help those women in need of aid....

    I'm enraged!

    I lived in Saudi Arabia from 1975 through 1980 and I saw firsthand the bleakness of life for women in that country. I worked in an OB ward in a hospital in Riyadh and I saw first hand all the young girls married to old men. Those young girls were frightened out of their wits if we told them they had delivered a female. One man actually came in the ward and beat his wife after she gave birth because he did not get his precious son! To tell you the truth, I had pushed all the sad and horrific stories out of my mind. Then a few months ago my husband gave me two of the PRINCESS books as a gift. Jean Sasson's books brought all the memories flowing back. And, I am ENRAGED that the Western world hasn't reacted about these women up until now. When it is time to make war on a country (Afghanistan) then Western governments bring up the issue of women being so mistreated. Once the fighting is over, the women are forgotten. Women in much of the world are pawns and we are guilty of this as well. We must change this kind of anguish for so many innocent and helpless women in the world! It's time to STOP, THINK and finally get active on this issue. If YOU want the world to be a better place, spread awareness by providing friends with these books. After awareness will come action. After action will come change. Come on world, its time we listened to this author and other's like her who are spreading the truth of life for women in much of the world. Oh, I forgot to mention that these books are absolute page-turners. You will not stop until you read all three so you might as well get them all at once at a good price!

    it was a eye opener, this book gives me a better understanding of the middle east and feels me with pride, how lucky I am to be apart of the United States of America

    this was a awesome book, i could not put it down every chapter lured me in, jean sasson is a captive and brilliant writer. To look into the lives of others who are unfortunate, makes me so thankful for being born in America. we are the lucky ones and we should reflect on being fortunate. I was amazed that stonings still go on and other horrendious acts. It is a must read! This book has given me strength and brought pride into my heart. I support our U.S. troops. God bless them all

    Thrilled to have them all in a beautiful matched set

    I first read Jean Sasson's PRINCESS in a high school literature class and I have followed this author since that time. She writes in a fast-paced but beautiful way. As an adult, I read DAUGHTERS and CIRCLE, but although the books were about the same woman, the covers were different and they never really "belonged" together on my book shelves. Now I see that the three books have been brought out in a set for the first time and I am so excited. I know now what I am getting all the women on my Christmas list! The PRINCESS TRILOGY! Everyone I know is curious about Saudi Arabia and this one book will tell you more than dozens of other books put together.
