Not being one for biographies, I went into this book with a bit of hesitancy. From the very beginning I was captivated.
Queen Noor reveals intimate details of her life as a Queen in a place that held so much curiosity for the rest of the world. She shares the details of her love for the King and the country that became the home of her heart.
Well told and filled with delightful tales and emotional memories, this story is one that everyone should read. From her unique family background to the intense commitment she made to improving the state of Jordan and people all over the world.
Queen Noor is definitely a woman to be considered extraordinary and the telling of her life with King Hussein is a beautiful one, though often filled with turmoil and despair.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a warm love story with strong characters, all the better that these characters are real.

Overall this was an excellent historical account of Queen Noor's life and the history of Jordan. Some details were unnecessary and drawn out and I was a bit disappointed the Queen herself only narrated the introduction.
This book is a wonderful story of a Queen who did not live a fairy tale life, but a privledged life. Queen Noor has taken every opportunity to serve her country, family and husband. A very interesting tale of a unique life story.
