I received a copy of Reflections Of Queen Snow White from its author, David Meredith. The book takes as its starting point the Grimm fairy tale of Snow White but, instead of simply being another retelling, Meredith looks into Snow White's future to imagine what happens after the Happily Ever After. We find Snow White, depressed and alone in a cavernous throne room. The rest of her court rush about outside delightedly preparing for her daughter's forthcoming marriage while Snow White still mourns the loss of her beloved Prince Charming who died of old age a year before. Meredith's story is dark in the Grimm tradition and includes descriptions of violence, sex and child abuse that will certainly be extra-shocking to those who only know the Disneyfied Snow White. I liked his idea of Snow White visiting her past by way of her Stepmother's enchanted mirror. She longs to reclaim happiness and her inner strength. Perhaps the mirror's reflection will show her how?

The adult Snow White is experiencing a crisis of confidence and has sunk into depression so her frequent woe-is-me wailing is understandable, if irritating. She seems determined to only ever value herself in relation to a man as would have been normal for the Grimm story's era, although the mirror tries to guide her towards independent strength. Meredith mostly uses historically appropriate language which adds to his well-crafted atmosphere, but occasionally slips into modern-day Americanisms such as 'mommy' which grate. Words are distractingly misused too. Amongst others we have dust moats instead motes, hair is quaffed not coiffed (surely she'd choke!), and my favourite was reading about courtesans in place of courtiers - although some behaved more as the former than the latter so perhaps the substitution wasn't so far off.

About the book:

Queen Snow White has been depressed since her husband Prince Charming died. Not even the wedding of her only daughter Princess Raven can bring her out of it.

When Snow wanders up to the forgotten tower she finds her stepmothers magic mirror. This is the beginning of a journey for Snow White as she confronts her past. Will Queen Snow White ease her grief and maybe even find some peace?

My thoughts:

Snow White was left desolate after losing Charming and this book tells the story of how she looks back on her life to find perspective in her future. It was really interesting to read a story set after the happily ever after. This story was thoughtful and kept my interest. The flashbacks to Snow Whites past were entertaining and more darker than the Disney version. Definitely more in keeping with Grimms fairy tales.

Overall:

I really enjoyed this story it was very descriptive and entertaining. I was happy to spend time reading about Snow White and her life after the happily ever after.

Well worth a read especially if you are a fan of fairy tales!

Four stars from me!

Thank you to David Meredith for kindly sending me a copy to read and review. This is my honest opinion.

My actual rating for "The Reflections of Queen Snow White" was 3.5 stars.

We are all very familiar with the story of Snow White and her happy ever after but what if we were wrong and things didn't turn out the way they were supposed to?

In this twist on an old fairy tale we meet an aging Snow White, who has since lost her "Prince Charming" and is still in a state of mourning for Charming and her life. Now sad and lonely, she finds her self reflecting back on her life with the help of a mystical mirror.

Unfortunately this story wasn't my cup of tea but it is definitely worth a read. It is very engaging and some bits are rather quite enjoyable. It isn't too long as I finished it in a couple of hours but if you like this type of story, this is one not to be missed.

'Once upon a time.....' - The classic start to all the fairy stories we have grown up with. And of course we have the classic ending - 'and they lived happily ever after'.

But what's happens after the 'happily ever after'?

This book gives us an insight into what life could have been like for Snow White when she is older, a widow, and mother of the bride.
The way this author has turned the popular children's fairy tale into an adult fairy tale is amazing. I read this book in one sitting, desperate to know more.

Queen Snow White is in a deep depression following the loss of her beloved Prince Charming. Nothing can get her out of it, even the upcoming wedding of her daughter, Princess Raven.

Attempting to find somewhere quiet she stumbles upon a room she hasn't visited in years. In that room she finds the magic mirror. She remembers well that this mirror almost caused her downfall, yet she feels compelled to converse with the mirror.

The mirror begins showing her, and the reader, various moments in her past. Part of the reason this is a book for adults is due to the violence she is shown to go through at the hands of her stepmother.

The idea of this book is to show Queen Snow White that she has a lot to be grateful for, she has led a life worth living, one not worth forgetting about due to grief. There is quite a moral there for us all if we give it the chance.

I loved this book and highly recommend it.
