For the first time, the international bestselling PRINCESS books are available in a boxed set.
IT ALL BEGAN WITH PRINCESS, called "Absolutely riveting..." by People Magazine.
This first book in the nonfiction trilogy describes the true life of Princess Sultana, a princess in the royal house of Saudi Arabia where she lives in a "gilded cage" with no freedom and no control over her own life.
The saga continues with PRINCESS SULTANA'S DAUGHTERS called "Another page turner..." by Publishers Weekly. DAUGHTERS continues the extraordinary story of Princess Sultana. Gripping and personal, DAUGHTERS recounts the lonely battle of a Princess who is attempting to secure freedoms for her daughters.
The third and last book completes the PRINCESS TRILOGY, called a "Political rallying cry...." by Publisher's Weekly. CIRCLE paints a horrifying reality for women of the desert kingdom. As Sultana battles for a life of dignity, she saves other women from servitude.
THE PRINCESS TRILOGY is the testimony of a woman of indomitable spirit and great courage.
You have never read a story like the story of Sultana, and you will never forget her or her Muslim sisters.
