Wish You Were Here, which will hit shelves November 30 from Ballantine Books, centers on Diana O’Toole. Her life is perfectly on track: She’s climbing the professional ladder in New York City, and she and her boyfriend, Finn, are about to embark on a romantic getaway to the Galápagos Islands where she is certain he will propose. When events out of her control require Finn to stay back in the city, she reluctantly heads to the Galápagos alone. As she falls deeply in love with the place, and the people who live there, Diana wonders if she’ll be able to go back to her old, once perfect life.
