Publisher Comments:

Because she is a woman, she is considered worthless — a slave to the whims of her male masters. She has watched sisters, cousins and friends sold into marriage as young girls to men five times their age and brutally murdered for the slightest transgression, in accordance with cruel and ancient religious law. Now bestselling author Jean P. Sasson offers a shocking glimpse into a world of opulent splendor and horrific oppression — and presents the real-life story of a courageous modern Saudi princess... who has risked her very life so that the truth may finally be told.
