L'amour n'est pas une science exacte. La comédie romantique de l'année !


Peut-on trouver une épouse sur mesure ? Le professeur de génétique Don Tillman, génie des sciences mais absolument inapte à vivre en société, en est persuadé. Pour mener à bien son " Projet Épouse ", il met au point un questionnaire extrêmement détaillé lui permettant d'éliminer toutes les candidates qui ne répondraient pas à ses exigences. Et celles-ci sont nombreuses, car pour Don :
la femme idéale NE DOIT PAS
1. Fumer et boire.
2. Être végétarienne et aimer la glace à l'abricot.
3. Se lever après 6 heures.
Mais elle DOIT
1. Faire du sport.
2. Être ponctuelle.
3. Accepter le Système de Repas Normalisé qui prévoit du homard au dîner le mardi.

S'il y a bien une personne qui ne remplit aucun des critères établis, c'est Rosie Jarman, étudiante le jour et barmaid la nuit, dont la vie est aussi désordonnée que celle de Don est méthodiquement organisée...

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Rosie Project comes a story of taking chances and learning to love again as two people, one mourning her husband and the other recovering from divorce, cross paths on the centuries-old Camino pilgrimage from France to Spain.

“The Chemin will change you. It changes everyone…”

The Chemin, also known as the Camino de Santiago, is a centuries-old pilgrim route that ends in Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain. Every year, thousands of walkers—some devout, many not—follow the route that wends through quaint small villages and along busy highways alike, a journey unlike any other.

Zoe, an artist from California who’s still reeling from her husband’s sudden death, has impulsively decided to walk the Camino, hoping to find solace and direction. Martin, an engineer from England, is road-testing a cart of his own design…and recovering from a messy divorce. They begin in the same French town, each uncertain of what the future holds. Zoe has anticipated the physical difficulties of her trek, but she is less prepared for other challenges, as strangers and circumstances force her to confront not just recent loss, but long-held beliefs. For Martin, the pilgrimage is a test of his skills and endurance but also, as he and Zoe grow closer, of his willingness to trust others—and himself—again.

Smart and funny, insightful and romantic, Two Steps Forward reveals that the most important journeys we make aren’t measured in miles, but in the strength, wisdom, and love found along the way. Fans of The Rosie Project will recognize Graeme Simsion’s uniquely quirky and charming writing style.
