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.
