This book is powerful and in a way is something everyone can relate to in one way or another. We all found ourselves living a perfectly normal life when covid first started and then all of sudden life around us shut down. This is exactly where Diana finds herself except, she and her long-term boyfriend (Finn) are planning their bucket list vacation to the Galapagos before everything begins to shut down. Finn is a surgical resident and his hospital is all hands-on deck, forcing him to cancel the vacation but he still urges Diana to go. Once she gets there everything seems to go wrong, the world shuts down, she has nowhere to go and no Wi-Fi. She luckily finds a family to take her in during this trying time.

Diana experiences the pandemic like everyone else, day by day and with a lot of uncertainty. She begins to reevaluate her career, her family dynamics and friendships. This book is an emotional rollercoaster from the very beginning to the very end. Diana is faced with a world of uncertainty and begins to question the life she has built for herself.

Does she stay on the island with the new life she has started to build? Does she go back home to Finn? Finn who she hasn’t talked to in who knows how long? They’re two different people now with their experiences of the pandemic and Diana must decide what that means for her and her future.

If you know Jodi Picoult books then you know there’s always twist and I did not expect this one.
