A Winter In China
Able, bored and just down from Cambridge in the summer of 1937, Sally Marsden contemplates her future without enthusiasm. So many have assumed she will marry Hugh Jerrold, it is practically, an engagement. When Hugh returns from his diplomatic posting to China there will be a wedding and a thoroughly respectable settling down.
One afternoon Sally's father, impelled by a mixture of his own dissatisfaction, compassion for his daughter's predicament, a newspaper advertisement in "The Times" and a passing desire to spite his wife, suggests that she travel to China herself. Sally can spend a winter in China and she and Hugh can return together the next spring.
Sally accepts a last adventure before submitting to the strictures of upper-middle-class English female life. By the time she arrives in the East, it is not long before the Sino-Japanese war begins to lap around the edges of the isolated and complacent western settlements.
A move inland to Nanking restores the peace. But only a few weeks pass before a disastrous miscalculation separates Sally from Hugh and leaves her trapped in the city, one of two dozen Europeans and Americans to witness the capture and sack of the Chinese capital by the Japanese Imperial Army.
