A while ago author David Meredith reached out to me to see if I would be interested in receiving a free copy of his book The Reflections of Queen Snow White in exchange for an honest review. Due to life happening, it took me a while before I was able to start reading it. Even though I had it waiting for a while, I am so glad that I picked it up! I am a lover a fairytales, so I was very excited to receive this retelling of Snow White.
What happens after happily ever after?
That is the question that Meredith’s story answers. It takes place many years after the story of Snow White that we are used to hearing about. In this retelling, Snow White has a daughter who is about to be married, and her Prince Charming has unfortunately passed on. Snow White has been in a deep depression since her husband’s death, feeling as if there is no hope for her without him; that he was the one who made her strong.
The majority of the story actually tells of times between the wedding of Snow White and Charming and the time that the story takes place in. What I really enjoyed about this is that they are not just flashbacks that Snow White has on her own. These memories are revealed by the infamous mirror on the wall. I absolutely love this portrayal of the mirror. Usually in retellings of this tale, the mirror is seen almost as much of a villain as the Evil Queen. That is not the case for this one. I do not want to give away too much information about the story, so I will not say too much about the mirror. However, I will say that the mirror proves to be one of the most important characters in the story.
I could not put this story down! I finished it in two days, and that’s only because I had to work and sleep. Otherwise, it would’ve been finished in just one! I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of fairytales! Thank you so much to David Meredith for this story!
