A princess of the Saudi Arabian royal family, Sultana Al Saud finds the oppressive treatment of women in her country intolerable. Growing up as a rebellious teenager and well known for her fight against the injustices meted out against women, Sultana was fortunate enough to have married a man considered somewhat more progressive than most other Saudi men. In the second book of the series, we witness Sultana grappling with family issues as both her daughters follow a path that could lead to their destruction. While secrets behind famous Saudi Arabian scandals are revealed and sensitive topics such as female circumcision are discussed with admirable comprehensiveness and insight, the reader is left holding their breath and bracing themselves for the next shocking revelation. A delightfully gripping page-turner that is too brutal not to be real.
