The Rosie Result

£7.99

Until twelve years ago, geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date. Then he developed The Wife Project and met Rosie, ‘the world’s most incompatible woman’. Now, having survived 4,380 days of marriage, Don’s life-contentment graph, recently at its highest point, is curving downwards. Rosie has just returned to work and is struggling with an obnoxious co-worker. Don, meanwhile, is in hot water after his latest lecture goes viral. But their real worry is their son, Hudson, who is having trouble at school: his teachers say he isn’t fitting in with the other kids. For Don, learning to be a good parent as well as a good partner will require the help of friends old and new. It will mean letting Hudson make his way in the world, and grappling with difficult truths about his own identity. It will also mean opening a cocktail bar.

Description

CURL UP WITH THE WONDERFUL FINAL INSTALMENT TO THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING SERIES THAT BEGAN WITH THE ROSIE PROJECT

‘Incredibly funny, life-affirming and warm-hearted’ Heat
__________

Big-hearted, hilarious and life-affirming, The Rosie Result is a story of overcoming life’s obstacles with a little love and a lot of overthinking.

Don Tillman – scientist, husband, father, and world’s greatest problem solver – met his wife Rosie by inventing The Wife Project. But ten years on from marrying ‘the world’s most incompatible woman’, Don is facing a set of human dilemma tougher than the trickiest of equations.

Don and Rosie’s son, Hudson, is smart, but he’s not fitting in at school. His teachers want an autism assessment.

That leaves Don facing some tough questions. Is the man with a rational approach to everything ready to tackle big truths about his son, himself and his own childhood?

If you liked The Keeper of Lost Things, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and Don’t You Forget About Me, then you’ll love The Rosie Project series.
