A powerfully evocative story of the triumph of the human soul.
Diana O’Toole is doing well. She will get married at thirty, have her first kid at thirty-five, and then move out to the New Jersey suburbs, where she will climb the professional ladder in the competitive art auction world. Her boss has hinted at a big promotion if she can close the deal with a high-profile client. She doesn’t know if he’s going to propose yet, but she knows he’s about to propose on their trip to the Galapagos Islands.

But then a virus suddenly appeared in the city, which means that everyone will be working at the hospital. He must stay behind. You should still go, he reassures her, since it would not be right for all of their non-refundable trips to be wasted. So, reluctantly, she leaves.
“A powerful story of resilience and the victory of the human spirit from the author of Small Great Things and The Book of Two ways.”

Diana’s dream trip quickly turns into a nightmare. She has lost her luggage, the Wi-Fi connection is almost non-existent, and the hotel she had booked is closed due to the pandemic. She has been quarantined for weeks now, and she is stuck there until the border opens again. Now, in the Galápagos Islands, where Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution by natural selection, Diana finds herself examining her relationships, her choices, and herself – and wondering if when she returns home, she too will be changed.
