She writes that the trip to Canada helped rejuvenate her spirit and keep her on as America's top diplomat.
"I've never told him (Mac Kay) that without the levity and refreshment of that visit, I might not have regrouped and returned to Washington to fight another day," Rice writes.

With the goal of becoming a concert pianist, Rice began piano classes at the age of fifteen. Mary's Academy in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado and graduated at the age of sixteen. She majored in music but when she met students of greater talent than herself in Aspen Music Festival and School, she doubted her career prospects as a pianist.
Right after that Rice attended an International Politics course taught by Josef Korbel and then she discovered her interest in the Soviet Union and international relations.
Ever since Condoleezza Rice and Peter Mac Kay were photographed smiling at a Nova Scotia Tim Hortons there have been rumours of romance between the politicians.
Now, Rice is addressing the gossip in her autobiography, "No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington." In September 2006, the pair appeared in Nova Scotia to commemorate Canada's sheltering of Americans on 9/11. The comment led to speculation that the two may have spent the night together.
In 1974, at age 19, the University of Denver awarded Condoleezza Rice a B. From the University of Notre Dame, she received a master's degree in political science in the year 1975.
During the Carter administration, Rice first worked in 1977 as an intern in the Cultural Affairs and Bureau of Educational in the State Department.
Mac Kay isn't the only foreign politician Rice has been linked to romantically.
She has also been tenuously tied to former British foreign minister, Jack Straw and former Italian foreign minister, Massimo D’Alema.
After many ups and downs and continuous effort, today Rice is one of the talented and successful American political scientist and diplomats.
