Beyond Reason Margaret Trudeau
A secret romance with a handsome statesman, twenty-nine years her senior, took a beautiful twenty-two-year old girl from obscurity to fame. In 1971 Margaret Trudeau became the youngest First Lady in the world. The Trudeaus appeared the happiest of loving couples…but not for ever after. Six years, three children and much speculation later, Margaret Trudeau walked out. She had taken the unprecedented step of leaving a reigning head of state.
Now Margaret Trudeau reveals her own, unique experiences of life at the very top. The characters in her book are headline makers; and hers is truly the inside story. With startling honesty, keen insight and an outrageous sense of fun. She describes the reality behind glamorous facades; the facts behind the scandals.
Her official role led her on a continuous round of state visits, political campaigns, grand parties for world leaders and tea parties for their wives. But the red tape and unrelenting security stultified her free spirit and by the time she mastered the fine art of protocol she no longer wanted to live by the rules.
Throughout Margaret Trudeau has kept her perspective and, above all, her sense of humour. Her spontaneity, quick tongue and love of romance are all part of this intimate and candid self-portrait.
