Product Overview

What could be worse than losing the love of your life? Getting her back!

William Teale is a brilliant professor of mathematics. His theory of inevitability posits that any human action, no matter how insignificant, might result in a disproportionately huge calamity.

His wife, Virginia "Faye" Warner, is a world-famous romance novelist who specializes in reuniting soul mates after a tragic and prolonged separation. According to her math, "one past and two hearts plus one love equals four-ever." The Teale-Warner marriage is a thing of geometric and artistic perfection, a melding of the heart and the brain-"amour" and algebra.

But when Faye''s ghostwriter suffers a nervous breakdown and shakes all the arrows out of Cupid''s quiver, Faye reintroduces her husband to love. Unfortunately, it''s not with herself, but with the woman William had loved and lost years ago. Love is about to clash with inevitability, and it''s unclear which will emerge victorious.

Told in the off-beat voice of William''s graduate intern, Roger, "Do the Math" reveals the curious relationship between logic and love and the delightful consequences of taking a chance.
