This book shares the inspiring story of a man who weathers a difficult childhood, a serious diagnosis, and forbidden love

The Golden Ship

Golden Ship by Mario Kordic Plavec has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

We all encounter storms in our lives, both literally and figuratively. What do you do when the going gets tough and you must weather the changes? Mario Kordic Plavec was born during a storm, and his life has been full of bad weather. At a young age, he was affected by sorrows, death, drugs, illnesses, and family problems—normal things, but perhaps unusual for a child to endure. But his storms gave him wisdom, as he learned how to manage them and seek happiness along the way.

As a young adult, he was diagnosed with MS, and it took him four years to heal. This life-changing event inspired him to leave home and travel to Singapore, where he met a beautiful woman and they fell in love. But the winds of change did not remain calm for the lovers, as her Muslim heritage forbade her from marrying Mario. Will Mario find inner peace and weather the storms of change? Golden Ship, by Mario Kordic Plavec, is an inspiring story of a man who endures all obstacles with a profound sense of self-awareness and finds love and peace.

A native of Croatia, Mario Kordic Plavec now lives in Slovenia with his wife, Anita Caparia. He studied political science at the University of Ljubljana from 1991 to 1993.

Golden Ship is a 90-page paperback with a retail price of $12.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0609-0. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information, or to request a review copy, please visit our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
