Chapter 3 Summary

Christopher forgets all about Sarah's threat and is surprised to find her there on the day of the dinner. He still declines to take her as his date and she creates a scene. She manages to get in anyway, but not as Christopher's date.

The dinner is in honor of Sir Cecil Medhurst, for his contribution to world affairs. During the evening, Christopher and he talk. Christopher asks him if, in his travels to Shanghai, he ever met Akira Yamashita. Sir Cecil has never met her. Sarah approaches them in time to hear about this inquiry.

Later in the evening, Christopher and Sarah make amends. Sarah explains that her ambition is to marry a man who will "make a difference" and hence, it was imperative that she be present at such prestigious affairs. They both apologize for the way they treated each other.
