Writing with warmth and humor, Connie Schultz reveals the rigors, joys, and absolute madness of a new marriage at midlife and campaigning with her husband, Sherrod Brown, now the junior senator from Ohio. She describes the chain of events leading up to Sherrodas decision to run for the Senate (he would not enter the fray without his wifeas unequivocal support), and her own decision to step down from writing her Pulitzer Prize-winning column during the course of one of the nationas most intensely watched races.
