A Marriage at Cross Purposes

Professor Martin Quint has moved from a major university to a small college. He has an important book to write. But he is pressured by the college to help develop a new school of engineering and entrepreneurship and pushed by a visiting professor from Oxford University to completely redesign his teaching mode. Meanwhile, his wife's new business draws her away from child care. Conflicts over time and money erupt just when a shocking revelation from Martin's past threatens to careen everything out of control. Cross Purposes provides an eye-opening look at the realities of academic life, but at its heart, it's about a marriage at cross purposes, about trust and betrayal, anger and forgiveness....
