    Look What You Made Me Do

    Helen Walmsley-Johnson

    Product Code: LWYM
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    After listening to The Archers and hearing the story about Helen Tichener being emotionally abused by her husband, Helen Walmsley-Johnson found some of the plot elements disturbingly familiar. This is her story about how she wound up - and escaped - two relationships full of coercive control.

    Helen's first husband controlled all aspects of her life, from who she saw to how much money was in her bank account. He alienated her from friends, family and even their three daughters. He eventually threw her out, leaving Helen no chance but to painfully rebuild her life.

    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.

  • The Wild Remedy

    Emma Mitchell

    Product Code: WLDR
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Emma Mitchell has suffered with depression for 25 years. When she moved to the edge of the Cambridgeshire Fens in 2003 and started rambling, she realised that walking in the countryside would lift her mood just as much as medicine or therapy.

    Photographing, collecting and drawing as she walked, this is a hand-illustrated diary of the paths and trails around Emma's cottage. She shares her nature finds and tracks the lives of local flora and fauna over the course of 12 months and candidly talks about how this has an impact on her mental health. She also discusses the awe-inspiring animals she's encountered on her rambles.

    Written with frankness and honesty - and filled with beautiful drawings, paintings and photography - this is a truly unique journal for anyone who has ever felt drawn to nature and considered its influence over us.
