Jean Sasson is the sharp-eyed and compassionate chronicler of women’s lives in the Muslim world.From AudioFile:
Jean Sasson based this shocking exposŽ of current life for Saudi women on the life-long diaries of a princess of the Royal House of Al Sa'ud, known only as "Sultana." Detailing the cruel and almost unimaginable treatment of females, who are virtual prisoners in their own homes, this is also a passionate plea for sweeping changes to a centuries-old system of oppression. Valerie Bertinelli reads Sultana's story with a determined, steady expressiveness. Her tone is well-suited for Sultana at a younger age; however, it does not change as the character ages or when she reads the author's epilogue. Interludes of regional music are interspersed throughout the presentation. A.A.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
