First-time novelist Graeme Simsion hit the ground running with this book and we hope for many more to come. Don Tillman is a brilliantly awkward professor who is seeking a wife. Lacking any social skills and many failed blind dates, he sets out to find the perfect wife by initiating an online project.
Complete with a series of questions, Don believes he can screen for the right partner by eliminating those who fail to answer correctly. He decides to see Rosie, who he realizes will not be a suitable life partner, but is intrigued by her desire to find her real father. The two set out to solve this mystery and on this quest Don discovers that he has grown beyond the limitations that he has set upon himself and can’t return to the life he has always lived.
