Look What You Made Me Do
A Powerful Memoir of Coercive ControleBook - 2018
"Coercive control may have recently been made llegal in Britain, but not many women dare to open up about it. Helen Walmsley-Johson is an exception" The Times Not all abuse leaves a mark - a powerful memoir of coercive control Helen's first husband controlled her life, from the people she saw to what was in her bank account. He alienated her from friends and family and even from their three daughters. Eventually, he threw her out and she painfully began to rebuild her life.Then, divorced and in her early forties, she met Franc. Kind, charming, considerate Franc. For ten years she would be in his thrall, even when he too was telling her what to wear, what to eat, even what to think. Look What You Made Me Do is her candid and utterly gripping memoir of how she was trapped by a smiling abuser, not once but twice. It is a vital guide to recognising, understanding and surviving this sinister form of abuse and its often terrible legacy. It is also an inspirational account of how one woman found the courage to walk away.
