“Don Tillman is a brilliant geneticist, but he has always been rather socially maladroit.  Imagine his surprise when a friend tells him that he would make a wonderful husband.  Intrigued, he starts The Wife Project and commences the search for the perfect spouse.  While in the midst of his extremely precise hunt for a wife, Rosie Jarman blows into Don's life like a wild wind.  Rosie is on a quest of her own--The Father Project--the search for her biological father.  Rosie is the antithesis of Don's image of the perfect wife of his scientific calculations, but somehow he finds himself putting The Wife Project on the back burner to aid Rosie.  Much ado about a comedy of errors ensues in this hilarious, quirky romance!”-- Rachel King, Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany, NY
