Standing on My Own Two Feet
Faizia Zaman

about the book
Faizia grew up in Bangladesh, with a childhood she remembered as idyllic. She came to Britain as a young bride and was happily married - until her husband suddenly died, leaving her with five young children. In her life story she describes the devastation she faced, and how she acquired a network of friends and increased confidence through attending English classes; with this support she was able to overcome problems of money, housing and her children's education. Faizia died suddenly in 1997.

This new edition includes a preface by her five children who pay tribute to their mother.
