I loved the concept of this book, not just a retelling of Snow White, but a whole new perspective from Snow White as an older woman. I enjoyed the device of using the magic mirror to force Snow White to reflect upon issues of her past in order for her to come to terms with them, I liked that we got to see the events from the fairy tale in this new light. I did wish that we got to see see Snow White as an even stronger female character, but we do get to see her slowly gain strength and confidence within herself. I would have also liked to explored more of how Queen Snow White dealt with the marriage of her daughter. There were a few editing errors in the version of the story I received along with some weird word choices such as 'melancholic funk" which didn't really fit the feel of the book.
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
