Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult
It's wheels up and off to the Galapagos for Diana and Fin after four years of meticulous saving and planning for their engagement. At least, this was the plan until the pandemic hit. Sound familiar? Medical resident, Finn must stay back but he urges Diana to go on the non-refundable trip. They had no clue how things would unfold. Diana is stranded, learning to adapt and find her way through unlikely decisions and friendships. This listen will resonate with everyone who has had a pulse over the past two years. It hit so close to home with the complex feelings of worry, excitement, sadness, amusement and all the stress of living during a pandemic. This was beyond relatable as we all felt these jumbled emotions while trying to keep it together. We can only hope we made the right decisions given the circumstances.
