Houri, if you have read any of Jean Sasson's Princess-books and found them to be unrealistic then you ought to read "The Phoney Princess" (availiable on Amazon) which explains in detail by whom with whom and how Jean Sasson's Princess hoax book's were created.

also --- do you thing the author may have exaggerated in order to sell more books in the West?
Well, I think the most shocking thing about the Princess Sultana books is surely the fact that those books are not true and that they were made up to further stir negative propaganda and of course to make money from unsuspecting western readers who know painfully little when it comes to Middle Eastern history and customs especielly those of close knit royal circles.

I read those books many years ago and it didn't surprise me. I read a lot of other books about women and Islam after that as well. I was living in Amsterdam at the time and I read quite a bit back then. I think the actions would have surprised me more if I had not been living in Europe. I enjoyed reading them but they are indeed the exception and not the example from what I have read. cheers Cyndi

lenora the article concerning Death Of A Princess is indeed very informative and of course also very well written so my hat of to you for posting it and of course also the author.
But let's ask a question, " Is the information we have all there is about this case?" I will repeat here a little of what I wrote about it in "The Phoney Princess".
I mentioned some of the the wispers and gossip that emerged from Saudi Arabia at the time suggesting this unfortunate princess was actually married to a much older Saudi prince and that it was questionable if the figure that cowered in the arrid desert sand clad from head to toe in a black abaya in readyness to be executed, was really the princess or did some other ciminal person male/feale have to stand in for her? Someone no daubt who under normal circumstances would have been executed for his/her unrelated crime some other day. In Saudi Arabia the religious police who exposed tis princesses secret liaison, is indeed very powerful but the last word in such a case rests at the top of the royal table. For all we know, this princess might have been send to an Arab country lke Lebanon with an entourage of personal staff untill the story blew over and then returned to the fold. She might be married, happy, have children......

I have read the last two and I found it interesting to read about the Saudi royal family and about the sultan's younger sister.

The books are very interesting and I dobt that the author is posting on this site. Sorry. And, I think, from perosnal knowledge, that this is more the norm than not. I would not like to be a female in Saudi Arabia. Very restrictive and archaic.

To Friederike Monika, I understand you have also accused other writers of stealing your work.

Why didn't you go to England to pursue the case against Deborah Moggach? Would you explain.
