Princess Sultana’s Circle now available as an e-book!

Many readers have requested that I alert them when the 3rd book in the triology becomes available as an e-book.  That day has finally come.  PRINCESS SULTANA’S CIRCLE can be now read as an e-book through Amazon or other e-book outlets.

Others has asked that I give them a hint as to what is in the 3rd book.  So, here goes:

Princess Sultana’s Circle consists of a variety of stories about some of the females in Princess Sultana’s family, as well as stories of other women she came to know, courageous women who work to achieve equality of their lives, whether in personal or professional matters.

Here’s a brief description of only a few stories in the book:

Munira, Sultana’s niece, is the very shy and lovely daughter of Sultana’s evil brother Ali.  Munira is to be married to Ali’s equally evil childhood friend, Hadi.  Sultana and her sisters conspire in the hope to stop the marriage, for they know that Munira will not be a match for a much older, and extremely mean Hadi.

As Sultana’s one son and two daughters grow up, needing her fewer hours in the day, she becomes bored and listless.  During this lonely time in her life, she withdraws while starting a very harmful habit that will be discovered by her husband, Kareem.

Sultana’s youngest daughter Amani learns from one of her mother’s western friends about the joy of loving animals.  But Amani has a personality that takes everything to the extreme.  The end result is a series of hilarious incidents whereby the family home ends up with so many rescued animals that a family blow-up occurs.

Princess Sultana reveals the horrific story of a young American girl whose Saudi father fled America to Saudi, stealing a young girl from her mother.  (Author’s note:  Even today, innocent Heidi is still in Saudi Arabia and has been kept from her mother since that fateful day, other than three or four brief visits arranged by the Saudi Embassy.  It’s a tragic tale repeated over and over.)

All of Saudi Arabia is in an uproar when two British nurses are tried and condemned for murder.  The women are sentenced for beheading.  It’s a tense time in the kingdom and Sultana describes what it is like being Saudi during this dramatic stand-off between the Saudis and the British.

Nearly every Saudi Arabian love the desert and most families leave the cities and travel into the desert on occasion.  The beauty of Saudi Arabia and of the desert culture is revealed when the entire family goes to the desert for a holiday.  Descriptions of ornate tents and visits to bedouin villages are a delight.  Tragially, the trip is ruined for Princess Sultana when she discovers a terrible event occurring in her own family.  Once again, the princess and her sisters try to save a woman from a life of anguish and even terror.

If you get to read the third story about Princess Sultana, please feel free to write and ask the author questions about the book.

Happy Reading to you all!   Jean Sasson

      Hi… This is the 3rd books in the PRINCESS TRILOGY, but it has never been available as an e-book until now. (In the UK, it is titled DESERT ROYAL.)

      This is not a new 4th book on the princess…

      Have a lovely day! Jean

    Hi Jean,
    I am one of the many people who has read your books and felt horrified by reality yet inspired by the courage of the Princess in upliftment of women in Saudi Arabia. After reading your works, I myself have become more sensitive to women’s causes in India where still evil practices are being directed against women.
    Thank you for writing the stories which represent the truth of the most parts of the world.

    • Jean Sasson says:

      Thanks, Anuja! Sorry for the long delay but for some reason I was not notified of your message… I’m glad that you are more sensitive to the issues regarding women. ALL of us need to be that way — perhaps we can bring change. Thank you so much, Jean

    • jeansasson says:

      Hi Hazem, For some reason I was not notified of your email message. Well, I have different publishers for different books, but that should not matter as the bookstore managers should be able to order the books without a problem. Where are you living? Most likely my UK publisher, Doubleday/Transworld, would be the publisher who supplies your area. Let me know! Thanks so much, and once again, my apologies for the late reply. Jean

    Hi Jean, I am hooked on to books and came accross your book in this series and finished all three within 3 days. very well written and thanks to the princess for the revelations or rather inside view. as a Gender Activist in South Africa and having journeyed to Saudi (hajj) it realy gripped me not realising that the situation regarding our sisters were this “bad” for a lack of a better word. I thank the Almighty that we as South African Muslim Women grew up in a Community (Cape Town) where women took up their rightfull place in the community and further played a key role in the liberation and freedom of South Africa. My heart goes out to our sisters. The saying of women activist in South Africa is “You Strike a Woman ……You Strike A Rock” “Wathinta umfazi, wathinta imbokotho”. I cannot get over this terrible injustice and sit back and let our sisters in the Arabian Region be oppressed and subjected to such injustices. What is it that can be done how can we support our Arab Sisters? is the question that I ask to assist our oppressed sisters!!!!! I Pray that the Almighty grant them that they take there rightfull place in Society and the respect and give them a Voice that can be heard loud and clear, Insha Allah.I salute the Princess and her Circle.
