From the Inside Flap:

Readers of Princess, the international bestselling book about Princess Sultana, were gripped by the revelations of life of unimaginable wealth, and shocking human rights abuses inside the royal family of Saudi Arabia.

In Princess Sultana's Daughters, the chilling truth of life behind the veil carried on with the compelling stories of Sultana's young daughters, and other members of the Saudi royal family.

Now, with Princess Sultana's Circle, the extraordinary story of Sultana continues. The forced marriage of Sultana's niece to a cruel and depraved older man, and Sultana's discovery of the harem of sex slaves kept by a royal cousin, makes her more determined than ever to fight the oppression of women in Saudi Arabia.

Princess Sultana's Circle paints a horrifying reality for women of the desert kingdom. It is a haunting look at the danger of Saudi male dominance and the desperate lives of the women they rule.

About the Author:

Jean Sasson lived in Saudi Arabia for over ten years from 1978, and became, during that time, the intimate friend and confidante of "Sultana," who asked Jean to write her life story.

After writing the New York Times bestseller, The Rape of Kuwait, Jean told the story of Sultana by writing Princess and Princess Sultana's Daughters, both of which became bestsellers in many countries.

Due to readers' tremendous outpouring of interest and affection for Sultana, and for other women who endure appalling abuse, the author and the Princess now continue their efforts to end the outrageous human rights abuses against women which occur all too frequently in Saudi Arabia, and in other countries.

Jean continues to travel extensively in the Middle East and livers in her native southern United States.
