Waterstones Says

A poignant tale of longing and discovery from the bestselling author of The Book of Two Ways, Wish You Were Here follows a young woman whose carefully planned life is thrown off course by a pandemic, as she finds herself on a romantic holiday – alone.

It's Friday the 13th and Diana is an ambitious young appraiser at Sotheby's in New York. She's about to go on a long-awaited holiday, where she knows Finn, her surgeon boyfriend, will propose and the next stage of her carefully planned life will begin.

But it is Friday the 13th of March 2020.

The new virus hits. Finn can't leave the city, and suggests she goes without him. In the Galapagos, unable to get back to her real life, Diana learns about the devastation hitting the world as she hears intermittently from her boyfriend. She's discovering a new side to herself and a new kind of life, when everything changes . . .
