I received a copy of Waves through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Waves is a beautifully written exploration on the concepts of pain, loss, and recovery. It’s based on true events and emotions…which makes it all that much more heartbreaking to see. This is one of those stories that will always hit readers hard, but especially so when they’re dealing with their own loss. It’s something we can all sympathize with, and something we’ve all had to learn to cope with in our own way. In that sense it really doesn’t take much effort to connect with the narrator of this sad story.
This is the tale of love and loss. Of one couple who desperately wanted a child, only to face hardship and heartbreak. It’s not an uncommon experience in this world, but it is one that isn’t talked about enough. I give the author so, so much credit for being able to be open about her experiences, and I wish her all the best in life.
I am grateful for the opportunity to read this, and even more importantly; I hope this gave Ingrid Chabbert and her family some sense of closure.
