Download or read book Princess: Stepping Out of the Shadows written by Jean Sasson and published by Bantam. This book was released on 2019-08-22 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the international bestseller, Princess: The True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia, Princess Al-Sa'ud and the acclaimed author Jean Sasson began a remarkable series of books. Now, more than twenty-five years later, this compelling journey continues as we follow the fortunes and the dazzling life of the Princess, her friends and her family. But, of course, there is a less glamorous, much darker side to this engaging series, and in Stepping Out of the Shadows Jean and the Princess focus their attention on how, despite positive news on civil rights reforms, Saudi women still suffer physical and psychological abuse and have little legal protection due to the archaic guardianship laws of the land. So, although this is a kingdom on the threshold of revolutionary change - change spearheaded by the young Saudi Crown Prince who is keen to modernize his country - any thoughts of equal rights and the chance to lead an independent life remain little more than dreams for most Saudi women. Whilst the Princess acknowledges and welcomes the reforms that are on the horizon, through stories of joy and sorrow, we see how she is determined to continue to fight for equal rights for women in this, her beloved kingdom.

Download or read book Princess More Tears to Cry written by Jean Sasson and published by Random House. This book was released on 2014-08-28 with total page 432 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Jean Sasson’s book Princess: Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia was published, it became an immediate international bestseller. It sold to 43 countries and spent 13 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list. Now, in this long-awaited, compelling new book, Sasson and the Princess ‘Sultana’ return to tell the world what it means to be a Saudi woman today. Through advances in education and with access to work, Saudi women are breaking through the barriers; they are becoming doctors, social workers, business owners and are even managing to push at the boundaries of public life. Major steps forward have, undoubtedly, been made. But this is not the whole story. Sadly, despite changes in the law, all too often legal loopholes leave women exposed to terrible suppression, abuse and crimes of psychological and physical violence. For many, the struggle for basic human rights continues. This fascinating insight will include personal stories of triumph and heartbreak, as told to Princess 'Sultana', her eldest daughter, and author Jean Sasson. Each of these stories will offer the reader a glimpse into different aspects of Saudi society, including the lives of the Princess, her daughter and other members of the Al-Saud Royal family.

She’s safe for now, but she needs to find a way to get back to her timeline, where she’s the Crown Princess of the whole magic people, without meddling too much in the past affairs. Only that everything goes awry and what happens is exactly the opposite, especially as the first person she meets in the past is the ancestor of the king who’s after her, Prince Podron. No matter how hard she wants to push him away, he keeps on sticking to her, and together they go on a journey to make Priceskan’s secret wish come true: going back to her timeline. However, Prince Podron isn’t the only person she meets along the way, nor the only life she’ll meddle with, and messing with the flow of history seems to be unavoidable.

Book excerpt: From the acclaimed author of Singing With the Top Down comes a poignant tale about makeshift families and the healing power of friendship. Fifteen-year-old runaway Chancy Deel arrives in the picture-perfect town of Wenonah, Oklahoma, needing a helping hand. It’s just her luck to get it—from a cranky old man named Max Boyle, who is hardly the answer to her dreams. After losing his beloved wife, Max has only his dog, Alfie, and his home of fifty years to hang on to, and now Adult Protective Services is convinced he can’t manage on his own. Max would rather end it all than resort to assisted living. So when he finds a throwaway kid sleeping in his garage, Max seizes one last chance for both of them. Giving Chancy a home just might prevent him from losing his. In securing a place to live, these two solitary souls will discover something much rarer—a place to belong . . . and a heart to care. “Debrah Williamson creates characters who are spunky, flawed, courageous, loveable, and above all real.”—Lisa Wingate, author of Tending Roses

H. the Princess Aline of Hohenwald came into the life of Morton Carlton--or Morney Carlton, as men called him--of New York city, when that young gentleman's affairs and affections were best suited to receive her. Had she made her appearance three years sooner or three years later, it is quite probable that she would have passed on out of his life with no more recognition from him than would have been expressed in a look of admiring curiosity. But coming when she did, when his time and heart were both unoccupied, she had an influence upon young Mr. Carlton which led him into doing several wise and many foolish things, and which remained with him always."--Bookseller's website.
