Princess 2 is a great read, as gripping as the first Princess book It is not necessary to have read the first book to follow and understand this one but it does provide useful background and makes it easier to understand the behaviour and thoughts of the princess.
This book follows the life of princess Sultana s children She is an actual Saudi princess only name changed to protect her identity that longs forfreedom for women in Saudi Arabia Through tales of her children s lives the bitter reality of women in Saudi Arabia is portrayed.
