The Rosie Result by Graeme Simsion
Our Review….The title of Graeme Simsion’s third book in the Rosie series, The Rosie Result, does little to indicate the incredibly warm hearted, thought provoking and well written novel that the author has produced.
The story of Don and Rosie’s challenges raising their eleven year old son Hudson – who they suspect is autistic, and like most parents, want to protect and guide him through the tricky world of pre-adolescence. With Don having navigated a similar childhood path he is keen to see Hudson avoid the pitfalls that he experienced.
Unfortunately not everything goes to plan and as it takes a village to raise a child, the village, full of brilliant characters, comes to the rescue to create an unforgettably life affirming story that will linger with you. I thought this was the best book in the Rosie series, it was certainly the one I enjoyed the most.
