The Reflections of Queen Snow White

By: David Meredith 

 Buy Links:  Amazon


 On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven's wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven's fiancé, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White's own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing: The king is dead. The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old. It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what "happily ever after" really means? Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.

   Ever wondered what happened once happily ever after ended.  In reflections of queen snow white, we find out. The book starts as princess Raven is planning her wedding and Queen Snow White has lost her prince Charming a year earlier, Wallowing in self despair , Queen Snow has pushed everyone away even her own daughter, As Snow tries to find somewhere away from everyone and everything, She finds herself in her step mothers old room in the tower. Where she finds the mirror, that helps her out and shows her what is in her heart and that she is stronger then she feels. As she looks into to the mirror she remembers the good the bad and the oh so ugly in her life. She realizes that she is strong and that the ones you love never ever really leave them. They are all around you all the time.   This story shows us that when we do loose the one we love, we can dwell on in the depths of despair or try and move on and build the life we wanted.  This book hits home with me because after loosing my father, I was in a turmoil , torn between healing myself and being there for someone who just couldn't come out of the mourning period. So I know how both princess Raven and Queen Snow White felt like.  As Snow did in the book people should do reflect and love the ones that are still here.   The mirror was a strong image in the book for the soul fact that he said that I am reflecting what you know and what is in you heart, This helps Snow out a lot , know that it is already in her heart and she know she needs to love and forgive. But that is the hardest thing to do is forgive the person that has left you alone.  As the book continues and the mirror reveals more of the strength Snow has , she realizes that she is strong and good and is loved by everyone, This is a great book for anyone who would like to see what happened when happily ever after ends. I also recommend this for those who like to find out what happened after Snow and Charming met , fell in love and eventually passed on. David Meredith did a fantastic job creating the characters , you feel for Snow in her time of sorrow . You want to cry with her, shake her and comfort her the whole time, So please check out this book you so wont be disappointed in it
