THE TRUE SNOW WHITE’S DIARY
Audiences of today will be mesmerised by The True Snow White. The fantasy fairytales of old clash totally with the recent genre of reality film. Yet, as much as the fairytales of yesteryear have left some of us with unrealistic expectations, neither do many of us want the harsh realities of real life reminded to us for entertainment.
The True Snow White delivers a middle path of aspiration in life conduct. From the title alone, those who are not of a romantic nature are unlikely to look at it unless forced, so this suggests the audience will be Romantics or children.
To deliver The True Snow White to a child is to give them a balanced version of an ancient story. Such a version is a gift in moulding their development to look within and share without.
A Romantic will still be captivated but will find wise words that they can take away to enable them to merge reality with their dreams, “Above all and in the end, he will be human. That, in spite of all your dreams, you should never forget.”
He can also be substituted for She will be human. In our dreams everything is perfect but life isn’t like that. None of us is perfect and so we expect too much of each other. Or do we? Is it wrong to expect the best, to demand the best of ourselves and each other?
“He will be human” conjures up a warts and all vision with a sharp dose of reality. Set into the context of an ancient fairytale it is easy to push this aspect away, because to remember we and others are human implies a frailty. Yet remembering this frailty could bring compassion and forgiveness that would pay dividends in the quest for ‘happily ever after.’ “He will be human” is no small point to gloss over.
Likewise, She will be human is explored within The True Snow White. Snow White is a real child, a real young woman and as such is not perfect. We watch as Snow White learns to comprehend her inner strength, “And no self pity either, only choices to make. Just do it or leave it.”
Wise words from wise men. We are enthralled. The trick for Snow White is to know which words to listen to, for “A good word of advice can also be dangerous and turn you from your path forever. Much better you listen to the voice of your own heart.” But Snow White is human. Does she know how to listen to the voice of her heart?
Get your own copy and find out!
I have recently ordered and received my personal copy of The True Snow White Limited Premiere Edition, and I must say its quality well exceeded my expectations. It is often difficult to get a sense of what one is buying from an online description. But when it arrived, I was more than satisfied.
Those like myself who have already purchased their very own keepsake will have recognised the potential value this book can return in years to come.
Not only is it excellent value for money, but it also looks good, has been handcrafted very carefully, is individually numbered, and includes a personal handwritten message and signature by the author. And I am confident that whoever is lucky enough to buy one of the remaining copies will be just as happy about it as I am.
