Description

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.
