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 Sherroda€™s decision to run for the Senate (he would not enter the fray without his wifea€™s unequivocal support), and her own decision to step down from writing her Pulitzer Prize-winning column during the course of one of the nationa€™s most intensely watched races.
