Many women dream about having a family and a building a home. We grow up on a steady diet of fairy tales and chick flicks that drive our dreams - and leave us with a sugarcoated version of reality. We want it all: the prince, the kiss, the proposal, the ring, the castle and eventually, the kids in smocked rompers playing cheerfully on the perfectly manicured lawn. Our hopes and dreams are pinned on the world’s version of happily-ever-after.

The problem is, the fairy tales and chick flicks end where real life begins. We never see that follow-up scene where the prince and princess argue at 3 a.m. over who will get up with the colicky newborn. Or the princess reluctantly returning to work to help pay the bills and feeling the stress of juggling work and family. And you certainly won’t see that part where the princess moves her last child into the dorm and realizes the bulk of her identity has been based on being a mother.

In Ever After: Life Lessons Learned in My Castle of Chaos, bestselling author Vicki Courtney addresses the realities of marriage and motherhood - the difficulties and the blessings. This book offers women a behind the scenes glimpse of what a fairy tale really looks like, on the average day for the average wife and mom. Poignant, funny and even cathartic, Ever After shares mistakes made, lessons learned and memories to keep. Most of all, in this book, Courtney reflects the hope and promise that God meets us in the middle wherever we are in the journey.
