Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are about to face their most important challenge.
Their eleven-year-old son, Hudson, is struggling at school: he’s socially awkward and not fitting in. Don’s spent a lifetime trying to fit in—so who better to teach Hudson the skills he needs?
The Hudson Project will require the help of friends old and new, force Don and Rosie to decide how much to guide Hudson and how much to let him be himself, and raise some significant questions about Don’s own identity.
Meanwhile, there are multiple distractions to deal with: the Genetics Lecture Outrage, Rosie’s troubles at work, estrangement from Don's best friend Gene…
And opening the world’s best cocktail bar.
Hilarious and thought-provoking, with a brilliant cast of characters, The Rosie Result is the triumphant final installment of the much-loved and internationally bestselling Don Tillman trilogy.
A Note From the Publisher
“Charming, eloquent, and insightful, The Rosie Result is a triumphant conclusion to Don’s story, one that celebrates this remarkable father, husband, and friend in all his complexity and brilliance.”—Booklist [starred]
“Although The Rosie Result centers on Hudson and Don, each character in it transforms in their own way. . . Simsion’s novel depicts autism in such unremarkable ways that its story becomes remarkable in the telling.”—Foreword Review
“[V]ery much a charmer. . . with everything coming to a proper close. A fitting end to this delightful trilogy that doesn't pull punches.”—Kirkus
