    In her early 40s, Helen met Franc - who at first seemed kind, charming and considerate but soon also started telling her what to wear, eat and even to think.

    This candid and gripping memoir explains how she ended up being trapped by two smiling abusers and has been written to help other women in similar situations have the courage to walk away. It will help you recognise, understand and survive this sinister form of abuse.

A liberating concept that praises the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time, lagom is also inspired by the core belief of responsibility and common good.

    By following the lagom way of life, you can live happier, reduce your environmental impact, improve your work-life balance and free your home from clutter. It also encourages you to enjoy good food the Swedish way and cherish your loved ones.
