Warrior Princess is a first-person narrative. It is well-written and captivating, most often reading like a novel. In it, Princess presents her case and explains her fight for the 15 million children orphaned by AIDSshe being one of them. You can hear her strong voice coming out of her writing. She does not keep secret even the unfortunate aspects of her life, but explains how God used everything for His glory. Against all odds, Princess is still fighting for the lives of millions, and through this book she asks us to fight with her. We can make the decision that on our watch as the custodians of our planet, we will no longer tolerate the pain and destruction Are you with me?
Most of the book is the story of her life. When she catches up with herself, she infuses the last few chapters with more details, goals, and hopes regarding what has already been accomplished and what is well within the capabilities of yet being accomplished. Some of the content is mature, but the message is for all ages.
Her closing message is, I simply hope that my story, a story that echoes millions of others, will inspire you to join the fight against poverty, HIV and AIDS, and preventable disease. Stephanie Warner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
"I prayed with Princess in the lobby of a hotel in Lusaka, Zambia. I walked beside her and watched the sun set over the village where she grew up. I listened to her 'preach' to community leaders in the beautiful Bemba language, and sang while she led worship. Princess Kasune Zulu is a woman of passion, strength and wisdom. She has challenged me to engage more deeply with my global sisters and to speak more clearly on their behalf. I am grateful for the example she has been to me and glad that this book will allow her story to inspire many others."
"This book is a compelling and inspiring story of suffering and hope that will motivate, empower and challenge you to believe that the impossible is possible in our lifetime--even in the face of poverty, HIV and AIDS. Warrior Princess is a must read for every person who wants to make a real difference in the world."
"This is a fascinating book about a compelling woman who, when faced with personal tragedy, chose not to succumb but to fight--and not just for herself, but for millions of other people affected by extreme poverty and HIV/AIDS. Princess Zulu's story is a challenge to us all to focus less on our own worries and more on the opportunity we have, every day, to help others, in our families, communities and around the globe. It is also a reminder about what can be achieved when brave individuals speak out in the face of fear, injustice and stigma."
"This is the story of the life of Princess Kasune Zulu--from very humble and simple beginnings in a little village in Chibombo central Zambia, through early marriage, infection with HIV, fiery AIDS activism to meeting with the world's most powerful men and women--is a compelling story of a warrior woman's determination not to be defeated by a deadly virus. Princess says of her infection that the HIV running in her blood stream is a mere guest in her body and her life; she has refused to let the guest take over her life! This is the story of a Zambian woman who is positive about being positive. It is a story everyone must read."
"Princess Zulu's story is one of significant suffering, profound courage and great hope. Princess is not willing to be conquered by death or disease, but instead holds onto the hope of a greater purpose. She is a warrior, one who has embraced her life completely. I am utterly amazed at the joy found in her story. Warrior Princess is deeply moving and inspiring, reminding us of the life-giving truth of the gospel and provoking each of us to live out our God-given purposes. Read expecting to be challenged and encouraged by Princess'story of hope and great joy."
" Warrior Princess is a beautifully written, powerfully moving story. As we follow Princess on her extraordinary journey from a poor Zambian village to the corridors of global power, we find ourselves learning a great deal about the critical issues of our time--how and why extreme poverty affects Africa, and what life is like for the world's 15 million children orphaned by AIDS. The humbling lesson from Warrior Princess is that AIDS affects people just like you and me, who through an Âaccident of latitude' were born into the world's poorest countries. AIDS affects mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, teachers, doctors and nurses with hopes and dreams and families of their own. The great moral question of our time is just how will we choose to respond?"
" Warrior Princess is the honest and engaging story of a courageous woman who turned a tragedy into positive living. It shows that AIDS in Africa is not only about doom and gloom, but also about resilience and many heroes."
"The first time I met Princess Zulu I was impressed by her physical beauty and her effervescent personality. But I was equally taken with her deeply spiritual, intensely personal relationship with God born out of suffering and difficult situations. She is an amazing woman! If we speak at the same event, I do my best to make sure I speak before her so that I don't have to live up to her ability to capture a crowd! I'm proud to call her my friend and sister."
"Here is the story of an unlikely young woman who has changed the world. Orphaned in her teens in Zambia, her passion to be a voice for the voiceless in the midst of the AIDS pandemic took her from preaching to hardened truckers along the 'AIDS Highway' to churches across the United States and ultimately to the White House. Her story is a triumph of the human spirit that continues to inspire all who meet her. Read this book and be amazed at what God can do with even one person who is truly willing to serve him unconditionally."
Vanessa Church5 Stars Out Of 5May 11, 2010Vanessa ChurchWarrior Princess:Fighting for Life with Courage and Hope was an excellent literary effort for first-time authors, Princess Kasune Zulu and Belinda Collins. I just completed the book and am recommending that all of my friends purchase a copy. This is a story about an ordinary young woman from Africa, who has accomplished extraordinary things in her young life--despite her having been diagnosed with an incurable disease. It is a story of faith, and hope and a belief that dreams really do come true. It will make you laugh and smile and cry. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and believe everyone who reads it will come to a similar conclusion. This story is powerful and a must read.
