This is an incredibly moving and wordless account of a couple who conceives a child, but then miscarries - a reality many face everyday. I am so pleased there are more texts coming about about this very topic as it's far more frequent than many think, and the silence around such a common experience is not helpful. There is light at the end of this journey.

Oh my goodness, this graphic was so raw and truthful. It follows two women as they
try to start a family together. The partner carrying the child experiences a lot of
complications throughout her pregnancy, which ultimately leads to a miscarriage. It
delves into the what life is like after something like that, and how this couple picks up
the pieces and continues on. It was a beautifully illustrated novel, with an important
focus, but I did wish for more dialogue throughout the graphic. I wanted to learn more
about what the characters were thinking and feeling.
