A similar love story to The Rosie Project, Us is the story of a long-married couple Douglas and Connie. Douglas is a biologist; Connie is an artist and art teacher. The story begins when, after 20 years of marriage, Connie tells Douglas that she is thinking of leaving him. Their son is going off to college, and she just feels that they've done their job of raising their son.

Douglas is much like the main character in Rosie Project in that he is very socially awkward and a science geek though not autistic. He finds love with a spontaneous, attractive woman and can't believe his good luck when he meets and marries Connie.

This is a true look at marriage in all it's gritty detail. I became enrapt in the story of these fictional lives, and rooted for them to stay together, and for the son and father to forge a bond. But the story is true to life, and somehow the author is able to pull off a different happily-ever-after.
