From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and The Book of Two Ways comes "a powerfully evocative story of resilience and the triumph of the human spirit" (Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Malibu Rising) Diana O'Toole is perfectly on track. She will be married by thirty, done having kids by thirty-five, and move out to the New York City suburbs, all while climbing the professional ladder in the cutthroat art auction world. She's an associate specialist at Sotheby's now, but her boss has hinted at a promotion if she can close a deal with a high-profile client. She's not engaged just yet, but she knows her boyfriend, Finn, a surgical resident, is about to propose on their romantic getaway to the Galápagos--days before her thirtieth birthday. Right on time. But then a virus that felt worlds away has appeared in the city, and on the eve of their departure, Finn breaks the news: It's all hands on deck at the hospital. He has to stay behind. You should still go, he assures her, since it would be a shame for all of their nonrefundable trip to go to waste. And so, reluctantly, she goes. Almost immediately, Diana's dream vacation goes awry. Her luggage is lost, the Wi-Fi is nearly nonexistent, and the hotel they'd booked is shut down due to the pandemic. In fact, the whole island is now under quarantine, and she is stranded until the borders reopen. Completely isolated, she must venture beyond her comfort zone. Slowly, she carves out a connection with a local family when a teenager with a secret opens up to Diana, despite her father's suspicion of outsiders. In the Galápagos Islands, where Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection was formed, Diana finds herself examining her relationships, her choices, and herself--and wondering if when she goes home, she too will have evolved into someone completely different.… (més)

This was so readable that I have to give it five stars. And of course an ending to any novel is entirely up to the author. I was left wondering what was going to happen to her business in the end....IF.....and Rodney, her good friend....again, IF....Not quite a spoiler alert but I did have questions that I can puzzle out for myself---that's really not the author's job to solve everything. Hard to know sometimes what a Happy Ending is all about. Was this one of those, or not?? I do agree with other reviewers that Picoult beautifully described in incredible detail the picture of Covid at the time she was writing. Where are we now??? ( )

I loved this book set during the pandemic. I didn't know what to expect, as I had heard about the book, but not the subject. Diana and Finn are a couple, planning to head to the Galapagos. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hits, and Finn, a resident, has to work at the hospital. He encourages Diana to go without him. When Diana gets to the island, everything is shut down. Fortunately, a local woman offers her shelter and food. Diana spends weeks on the island, waiting for the time for her plane to return her to NYC.
What happens next is shocking. As always, Jodi Picoult throws something at you that you were not expecting. Brilliant! ( )

Though not particularly a Jodi Picoult fan, I did enjoy this book. About the end of the first section, I was beginning to think everything was a bit too pat, but then the second section shed a totally different light on the story.

This is really a story of Covid and how it affects the body and the mind in so many ways. The main character, Diana O'Toole is believable in her confusion about her experience and in the relationship to her mother who is dying.

Hard to write without giving away the main plot of the book. ( )

Not bad for the first COVID book. The themes of coping after a tragic event are the somewhat the same ( )

I was surprised. I did not expect the turn of events because I was so invested in one storyline that when it changed, it took me by surprise. Thoroughly enjoyable, fun to read not taxing on the brain. ( )

According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.

The only way you can tell how far you’ve come is to know where you started.
When you’re surrounded by desert, it’s inconceivable to think there are places that flood.
“The point is, if someone abandons you, it may be less about you and more about them.”
You cannot trust perception. Falling, at first, feels like flying.
