Cindy Hardin Killavey delivers a delightful and energetic performance of the Scottish fairy tale The Light Princess. Her vibrant voice brings to life a peculiar situation: a young princess is cursed by an uninvited guest during her christening and deprived of her gravity on land. The only time she does not float into the sky is when she is immersed in water, so swimming in a lake becomes her only refuge. Enter a prince, who falls in love. When the lake begins to dry up, the princess and prince are faced with a life and death decision. Can love triumph over all?
A king, a queen, a baby's christening, an overlooked guest and a curse. Author George McDonald takes the classic motiff and turns it on it's ear when the newborn princess loses....her gravity! An uninvited guest shows up anyway and the newborn princess is cursed. She grows up without her gravity. She is known as the "light" Princess.
Her parents can find no cure until by dark magic the girl's favorite place, the lake, begins to dry up and she begins to waste away. Will someone step forward to save them both?
