Look what you made me do: a memoir

Walmsley-Johnson, Helen, author

For more than two years, BBC Radio 4's 'The Archers' ran a disturbing storyline centred on Helen Tichener's abuse at the hands of her husband Rob. Not the kind of abuse that leaves a bruise, but the sort of coercive control that breaks your spirit and makes it almost impossible to walk away. As she listened to the unfolding story, Helen Walmsley-Johnson was forced to confront her own agonizing past. Helen's first husband controlled her life, from the people she saw to what was in her bank account. 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. This book is her candid and utterly gripping memoir of how she was trapped by a smiling abuser, not once but twice
