Summary This follow-up to Princess: Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia reveals the intimate struggles of Saudi women inside one of the richest, most conservative kingdoms in the world. These are stories of triumph and heartbreak amongst the highest- and lowest-born. Princess Sultana speaks frankly about her strong-willed daughters, her beloved husband and the contentious al-Saud family whose daily battles about what it means to be a woman in Saudi Arabia mirror those of the society at large. This is an unforgettable journey into the hearts and minds of Saudi women.
