 What happens when “happily ever after” has come and gone?

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.

This was a wonderful tale.

Everyone knows that Snow White went off to live happily ever after, but did she really?

I thought it was really great to see she’s like the rest of us. Her life had it’s ups and downs but like the rest of us she survived the bad times and lived the good times to the fullest.

I absolutely loved the way Snow was forced to see her true self. To look back on her life and really see herself, Charming and all the other people who loved her, as well as those that hated her.

I loved seeing how her Happily Ever After had truly turned out. The ups the downs the entire story.

Charming was obviously that. I don’t think Snow could have had a better husband.

I thought that Erfreut was a great friend to Snow. I was happy to see that he stuck by her throughout out the bad times.

This is a great read that will remind you that in even in the darkest of times there is always hope.
