About the Author:

Jean Sasson grew up in a small town in America's deep south before moving to the Middle East in 1978 to work at a prestigious royal hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In 1985, she met Princess Sultana, who inspired the widely acclaimed Princess Trilogy. Jean later worked as freelance writer in Lebanon and Kuwait, conducting interviews with Kuwaitis who survived the first Gulf war, as well as high ranking Kuwaiti officials before, during and after the War. Her affection for the Middle East has been the motivation for a number of her books and Jean has spent her career sharing the personal stories of many courageous women. Princess More Tears to Cry is Jean's 12th book and the fourth in the Princess series.

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
