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 fiancĂ©, 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.

I can honestly say that I loved this book!  David Meredith has taken a classic fairy tale and turned it into something spectacular.  He has used the details & characters from Snow White to help us through a journey of what happens once the 'Happily Ever After' has come & gone... 

Reading from chapter to chapter, my emotions were so real, so raw.  One minute I was wishing I could take the Queen Snow White into a loving embrace to comfort her and then with the turn of a page, I was wanting to shake her to make her see what she was missing.  There were times I even had to keep myself from shouting at whichever device I was reading from.

With fairy tale retellings being quite popular here lately, I would definitely recommend adding this one to your TBR (to be read) pile.  I'm rewarding this book a rating of 4.5 hot lips!
