After years of difficulty trying to have children, a young couple finally announce their pregnancy, only to have the most joyous day of their lives replaced with one of unexpected heartbreak. Their relationship is put to the test as they forge ahead, working together to rebuild themselves amidst the churning tumult of devastating loss, and ultimately facing the soul-crushing reality that they may never conceive a child of their own. Based on author Ingrid Chabbert’s own experience, coupled with soft, sometimes dreamlike illustrations by Carole Maurel (Luisa: Now and Then), Waves is a deeply moving story that poignantly captures a woman’s exploration of her pain in order to rediscover hope.

Waves by Ingrid Chabbert  is ❝ an album about love, loss, reconstruction.❞


This is a piece of art in each purest form. It documents the story of an incredible loss and how much effort it takes to get back on your feet.. You feel like you are drowing and you might not want to save yourself. There are always people that love you and want to help you to the best of their abilities.

The healing process comes in waves and I really liked the subtle way the artist was hinting that: as the color was returning little by little in the pages.

Even though this was a short read, it will stay with me. Thank you dear Ingrid for being brave enough to share your story.
