Following "Princess", dealing with women's lives behind the veil within the royal family of Saudi Arabia, this book now turns the spotlight on Princess Sultana's teenage daughters, Maha and Amani. 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 Sultana's 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. Throughout the book, however, she never tires of her quest to expose the injustices which her society levels against women. 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 lived in Saudi Arabia for more than ten years and became, during that time, a friend and confidante of Princess Sultana.
