SECRETS TO SHARE is Jean Sasson's explosive and riveting new book. As the world's attention traces the reluctant social advances in the Middle East, Princess Sultana and her female friends and family have stepped forward to rescue young women in the region who are cruelly mistreated by their husbands, their fathers and the brutish ISIS soldiers who kidnap them. But inside the Princess's lavish Saudi Arabian palace, sparks of anger and bolts of fear crackle because of the secrets kept to forward her efforts to help women and children. Kareem is furious when Sultana guards Maha's secret to volunteer to help traumatized children at a refugee camp in Turkey. When a beautiful Yemeni woman visits the royal palaces of Saudi Arabia, Sultana is saddened, yet mesmerized to be told the story of the woman's seven marriages. Meanwhile, Kareem's father takes a new wife - and Princess Sultana is blamed. Jean Sasson is author of thirteen bestselling books, including New York Times bestseller PRINCESS: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia and of GROWING UP BIN LADEN: Osama's Wife and Son Take Us Inside Their Secret World.… (mais)

I received a free copy of this e-book from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review.

I read the original Princess series a few years ago, and I really liked them. I have a deep interest in women's rights, and the books' subject matter appeals to me.

After reading this one, I was left unfulfilled and disappointed. First off, if you haven't read any of the other Princess books, you'll be lost. None of the characters grow or evolve in this book, so if you don't already know them, you probably won't grow to care for them. This isn't the kind of book that can be picked up and enjoyed without reading all the others in the series.

Secondly, I was most frustrated by the fact that nothing really seems to happen in the book. The narrative mainly consisted of Sultana saying how important "her work" is, and how many millions she gives to women's causes. That, mixed in with conversations she has and very awkward letters she receives, makes this book very unsatisfying. It seems like the characters would talk about several terrible situations women were in, but nothing was done aside to say "I want to help." I would have enjoyed this more to find out how exactly she was helping, or what exactly was being done to help women, but the book was extremely short on details.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. It took me forever to get through it, because the book failed over and over again to catch my attention and engage me. I still think highly of the first three books and will certainly recommend them to interested parties. I do not feel that this book is a worthy successor to the original trilogy. ( )
