I have read this book because I am living in Riyadh at the moment, and trying to get an insight into the culture. The life related in this book is so extreme as to be almost unbelievable, but from what I have seen on the internet and in my life there, there are sufficient glimpses of what might be going on underneath the apparently modern-day surface to support the truth of this story. It's extraordinary, and scary that human beings can be so desensitised to other humans that they can treat them in such an inhuman/inhumane manner.

I had borrowed this book from the local library years ago, and it always stayed on my mind. When I got my e-reader, this was on my hit list to read again.
A very real and stark revelation of the real life of a woman, in Saudi Arabia, from common class or royal; it makes no difference. What a wake up call!

I couldn't believe it when this book popped up on the Smashwords roster.I specifically purchased it for the privilege of being the first to review it here. I first read Princes years ago and to say it made a lasting impression on me would be an understatement. Please read this book!
