The War Council (University Chronicles)
Ever wonder what it would be like to be able to hire the team from "Mission: Impossible" to solve your relationship woes? A young communications professor attempts to make that happen in "The War Council." After the love of her life leaves her for a job on the other side of the world, Professor Maggie McGrew is devastated. To Maggie, his leaving--and not taking her with him--was just not logical. Instead of merely mourning the breakup, Maggie pours herself into the study of love. She comes up with the concept of a paramilitary-style relationship counseling service that she calls "The War Council," because, as they say, all is fair in love and war. Maggie then enlists her friends and colleagues--from fellow professors to a university psychologist and the rugby coach--to serve in a variety of roles on the council.
