For Immediate Release: May, 2017 -- Just in Time for Summer Fun Reading!
The 2016 Readers' Favorite International Book Award Contest featured thousands of contestants from over a dozen countries. “Readers’ Favorite is proud to announce that "The Mommy-Go-Round" by Eleanor D Alspaugh is a Bronze Medal Winner in the Non-Fiction - Parenting category in our 2016 International Book Award Contest.”
In May, 2016, The Mommy-Go-Round was also awarded 1st Place in the Pacific Book Award for Best Parenting – Family category. A Readers’ Favorite review stated, “I honestly loved The Mommy-Go-Round by Eleanor D. Alspaugh.” Eleanor “does a great job of drawing on the lessons and experiences of her own childhood, and those of her time as a mother, to create a wonderful picture of the American family as it should be.” It is “well written, well organized, and very humorous.” Another Readers’ Favorite reviewer found it filled with “reassurance that any reader who is a mother is not alone.” It is written with “amazingly revealing honesty. Throughout this beautifully illustrated book, she tells readers all the things nobody else will about the tumultuous journey of life when a woman, particularly if she is a Christian with high expectations of herself, embarks on motherhood.”
Now an award winning author, Eleanor D Alspaugh was raised in Hatboro, Pennsylvania and graduated from Shippensburg University. She currently resides in Carlisle, Pennsylvania with her husband Stephen and family. Formerly an Assistant Vice President, she somehow found time to capture in writing some of the antics of raising her three kids and experiencing life as a working wife and mother. A completely honest, humorous and heartwarming account of motherhood, The Mommy-Go-Round has truly captured the roller coaster ride of Motherhood sharing the awesomely blunt, seldom spoken, yet touching observations (and some true confessions) from Eleanor’s childhood as well as her mom-life role as a working mother of 3. Filled with heartwarming humor and love, she breaks the Motherhood Code of Silence regarding Motherhood, childhood and everything in between. She may even teach you a few things about that crazy role of a mother that no one warns you about! The book is available locally at the Whistlestop Bookshop in Carlisle, PA and the Doylestown Bookshop, Doylestown, PA as well as various places online.
Eleanor is currently working on a book called The Heart of a Soldier which highlights World War II and her Father’s experiences as a soldier as written in his letters sent home to her Mother. Eleanor looks forward to spending more time writing a sequel to The Mommy-Go-Round once The Heart of a Soldier is completed. Eleanor attended the Readers’ Favorite Award Ceremony in Miami this past November.
