Narrator Marin Ireland takes listeners on a journey they won’t soon forget. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile contributor Sandi Henschel discuss Jodi Picoult’s Wish You Were Here, concerning Diane—a woman whose long-awaited dream vacation to the Galapagos becomes something very different when the Covid pandemic hits. Ireland sounds truly flummoxed as Diana’s luggage is lost, her wi-fi becomes spotty, and money runs low. Ireland is utterly believable as Diana slowly connects with quarantined island locals, awakens to the beauty around her, and begins to reassess her life.
