This novel,MoreThis compelling story chronicles the tragic life of Princess Yasmin Al Hassan, a woman born into royal echelons of Moroccan society. She falls from grace at the hands of an Islamic culture that holds no tolerance for the rights of women. This novel, which is a blend of fact and fiction, is an account of what can happen to women if they do not follow the ultra-conservative rules of provincial Arab societies – even if they are royalty. Yasmin is reared in the Moroccan Muslim tradition, where a certain degree of Western ideology is practiced. Much of the Western ideology is not accepted in many other Arab countries. After moving to Saudi Arabia with her new husband, Yasmins beliefs – and all else she holds dear – are tragically taken away from her as she tries to live in her new world.Yasmin fights her way through unspeakable horrors as she desperately tries to hold on to both her sanity and her life. As her world crumbles around her, she continues to find the courage necessary to live her life in the only way she knows how...with the dignity and nobleness that was inherent in her from birth...as a princess.This gripping and timely novel takes the reader into a wold where money is no object, struggles for power are prominent, and women are treated as property. From Morocco to Saudi Arabia, from Egypt to America, this book will be glued to your hands from the moment you pick it up.
