Nicole Chénier-Cullen's discussions of the critical issues that the minister tackled, such as new immigration legislation, dealing with Quebec's first separatist government, and the tragedy of the Vietnamese refugees, uncover a behind-the-scenes perspective never before known. Her humorous, straightforward account of life in a minister's office is most refreshing. Her honest, thoughtful discourse on how the couple survived what could have been a scandalous relationship adds a revealing dimension to the story, as does her portrayal of Cullen's transition from politician to Federal Court judge.
Finally, the author's heart-wrenching account of her husband's final years, and how the family coped with the ravages of Lewy Body, an Alzheimer's related disease, packs a real emotional punch.
