This chapter details Xuan's path that led her from the jungle to London and back to Saigon in 1956. It narrates how she first met Lau in the maquis and then in England where they got married. It also talks about Xuan's studies in piano at the Royal College of Music and Lau's education at the London School of Economics and Oxford. The chapter discusses Xuan and Lau's return to southern Vietnam, where they had to keep a low profile teaching piano and raising four children. It mentions Xuan's resentment of the rule of Ngo Dinh Diem, which she described as a dictatorial regime whose injustice the people had to bear daily.
