​Tennessee author and former Farragut resident debuts novel released on Amazon

NASHVILLE — The Reflections of Queen Snow White (Fantasy/Romance novel) written by David Meredith, an independent author and native Tennessean from the Farragut area, has been released on Meredith spent nearly a decade teaching English in Japan but is currently living and teaching English in Greater Metropolitan Nashville. The Reflections of Queen Snow White is his debut novel.

"Then the king's son, full of joy said, 'You are with me... I love you more than everything in the world. Come with me... You shall be my wife.' Snow White was willing and went with him. Their wedding was held with great show and splendor and they lived together happily ever after..." -The Brothers Grimm - Tale #53

Thus ends one of the world's most beloved faerie tales... Or does it? 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 in The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
