This chapter explains the story of Nasreen Choudhury. There are lots of Sylheti people who live in England. In 1973, Nasreen's husband opened a restaurant in Ilkley. He started a restaurant business because he had an accident in a factory and lost his hand. Ilkley is a tourist town, so people come from all over the world. Everything was going so well – they had a home and a business, the children were good – but then Nasreen's husband passed away, in 1984, and she was left with the children. Then, the struggle began. Nasreen had to run the business all by herself.
