Rate this:
In 1970, a pretty young woman called Helen Cummings married a handsome doctor called Stuart Wynter. But instead of being a marriage made in heaven, it was the beginning of a hellish existence of spiralling abuse that ended six years later when she escaped with her two young children. Except it wasn't the end at all because Dr Wynter remarried and this woman and her child weren't able to escape, and Helen wasn't able to help. In this brave memoir, Helen Cummings relates an idyllic childhood growing up in 1960s Australia and looks back on a marriage that nearly killed her and her children. Today Helen is the mother of a famous daughter and the daughter of a famous mother, but she also had to come to terms with being the former wife of a murderer, and someone who was powerless to help his victims.
