In touch with readers of "Sultana's" stories
If you are reading this third book about Sultana, I know you are a true believer in justice for all women. And, I hope that along the way, you are enjoying a second benefit as you learn about the true lives of women who are hidden behind black veils of secrecy.
Although I have already written detailed comments under "Princess" and "Daughters," I did want to "appear" with "Desert Royal," since so many of my readers have told me that this is their favorite of the three books about "Sultana." I have no explanation for this, other than this extraordinary woman tends to "grow" on you. Whatever the reason, I am very pleased and grateful to you all.
And, if you have finished reading the book, the Princess & I ask that, if at all possible, you all try to help another woman in need. And if you'll only look, you'll find women in need in every country, including the West. If nothing else, please write to people in your government and ask that help be given to the mothers who have lost their children to their Saudi fathers. Little girls such as Heidi, featured in this book, should not be forgotten. Even as I write this, I cringe, thinking of how that little girl, and so many other little boys and girls like Heidi, are missing, and crying for, their mothers. And, how their mothers, such as Margaret McClain, are crying for their children. Surely, this most important issue should receive instant attention from all governments...
Thanks so much for caring,
Jean SassonBook Description:
