[minimal shelfwear to book itself, tiny dent in top edge of front cover; jacket has a small chip at top of spine, a couple of small tears at base of spine]. "The true story of the young German woman who, while governess to the Saudi Arabian royal family, participated in the circumstances surrounding 'Death of a Princess.'" (The reference here is to a controversial 1980 British TV docu-drama that depicted the public execution of a Saudi princess and her lover for adultery.) The author "spent two years as a governess to Prince Abdul Azis, grand-nephew to King Khalid of Saudi Arabia," and draws on that experience to reveal "what life is like for the lonely, luxury-loving princesses whose incalculable wealth buys everything except the love they desperately desire." (Ms. Buschow was fictionalized as the character "Elsa Gruber" in the film, and depicted by actress Judy Parfitt.)
