Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Rosie projectTitle to be discussed: The Rosie project by Graeme Simsion.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, August 8, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date.... So when an acquaintance informs Don that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet Don must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical; most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things, and is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent, and on a quest of her own. Rosie is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie, and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper."
