Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Inspired by her husband’s favorite endearment, actress-turned-author Sylva Kelegian has written an engaging story that will take readers on a magical journey full of hope. “The Dolphin Princess” (published by Xlibris) chronicles an eight-year-old child’s quest for love, which she finds from unexpected friends in an unusual place.
When eight-year-old Saroya loses her mother, her usually absent father takes her on a cruise for her birthday, which he forgets to celebrate. Saroya, devastated and very seasick, falls off the ship, trying to catch a locket that once belonged to her mother. She is then rescued by a dolphin who takes her to the magical Animia Island, where she meets Josephine, a stuffed puppet; her son, Little Joe; Calista the conch; Jonbl the baseball glove; and the adorable Spoon. They, among others, were all unwanted and are now animate - alive. Through her new friends, Saroya learns she is not alone and that where there is life, there is love.
Full of adventure and magical creatures, this new book brings a message of hope to all young ones, and adults alike: That the death or absence of a parent is not the end, and one can always find love as long as one is alive. With her knack for storytelling, Kelegian effectively gives life to her imaginary characters. From a person who has been in the limelight, this time Kelegian gives the floor to a tale full of inspiration: “The Dolphin Princess”.
