This is an amazing story of what life is truly like for women behind the Veil of Islam! The main character, a real Saudi Princess, risked her life to have this book written. The author, Jean Sasson, gives a vivid rendering of the isolation that many Muslim women live in and helps the reader to understand how men treat women in the Islamic world. Reading this book will give you great insight of what life is like for the women of Saudi Arabia and for Muslim women all over the World. It is heart breaking and will move you to tears. I recommend reading this book if you want to deepen your burden for Muslim women.
