A Mother’s Story by Amanda Prowse wins 2015 eBook of the Year award
A Mother’s Story, Amanda Prowse’s gripping and heart wrenching novel about a young mother struggling to cope with postnatal depression, has taken home Sainsbury’s Entertainment on Demand’s third eBook of the Year title.
Since mid-November avid readers and eBook lovers across the country have been voting for their favourite eBooks from an original list of 140 of the year’s biggest titles spanning a range of genres; from crime thrillers to biographies, and literary fiction to women’s fiction.
A Mother’s Story, Prowse’s seventh book in a glittering writing career which only began once she turned 40, topped a prestigious list of successful 2015 titles, including The Lie by C.L. Taylor, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Paper Towns by John Green, and The Final Minute by Tina Boyd.
The powerful novel tells the story of Jessica, who despite a loving relationship with her husband Matthew and a supportive family network, struggles to come to terms with the birth of her new child Lilly and fails to get in touch with her maternal instincts. The book tackles the traumatic, and often misunderstood, topic of postnatal depression with incredible detail, while delivering a tactful and though-provoking narrative.
On winning the award, Amanda Prowse commented: “I am absolutely over the moon to have won this award. What means the most to me, is that it is voted for by readers and book lovers. Thanks to everyone who voted for me, I am delighted that Jessica’s story has resonated with new mums all over the world, and has been chosen among some very worthy competition.”
To celebrate Amanda Prowse’s success, Sainsbury’s Entertainment on Demand will be offering A Mother’s Story for just 99p. Visit www.sainsburysentertainment.co.uk to find out more.
