When I looked at the main issues of this book, it was not new ones. It was still interesting, even though the first book was more interesting.

This was the second book written by Jean Sasson I read. As the first book (Daughters of Arabia), this book told mainly about the gender equality. Sultana, as a main character in this book, was a princess of Al-Saud family. This was a well known and very wealthy family. Again, in this book, Ms Sasson detailed about problems within a mixture marriage (western and middle eastern), a domestic violence, women and girls trafficking for sexual purposes, and how men treated women. It was based on a true story. Everything was disclosed unless the identity.
