Reviews - What do customers think about Shattered Bonds?

Just when you thought you had it bad!  Jun 9, 2008
Cindy Ruth Band had everything that she could have possibly imagined, a loving mother and beautiful home in Long Island. Then one August night in the early 1980s, it call came crashing down on her. Her mother's dead body remained at the foot of the basement stairs. Then her father's secret life unraveled about his long-term love affair with widowed socialite and travel agent, Elizabeth Diamond, and Cindy's image of her own family life was completely shattered by lies and deceit by her own father who wanted to have a new life with a new wife. Sadly, Cindy would be tormented and began to deal with the constant torture of her father's abuse, physical and psychological. Cindy was very close with her mother, Florence Shaffer Band, and her death devastated her. In fact, her mother was murdered by her own father. Cindy's life did not go happily after that because of her mother's death. She was heartbroken over the loss and when she tried to recover in Greenwich, Connecticut with other family members then her father brought her home to a house of horrors. Liz became both friend and foe and it isn't until her father's deathbed confession in prison that she learns of Liz's involvement in both her husband and her mother's death. Her father became a murderer twice. Cindy did the unthinkable and forgave him for his crimes even though he tried to kill her and institutionalize in a mental hospital against her will as a trick to discredit her testimony. Cindy's life was never the same and she speaks about the crimes that affected her. I'm sure that she would have been able to tolerate a perfect stranger killing her mother than her own father.
Such Bad Writing  Dec 4, 2007
The actual murder case seemed interesting, but I just couldn't get very far in this book because the writing was SO BAD! There were endless amounts of dialogue that were just in no way shape or form how actual people speak. It jars you right out of the story when the people in the novel spout stupid nonsense that rings amazingly false. I would like to read about this case in a book written by someone else, someone that leaves out all the useless and stupid yet copious amounts of dialogue.

This book is not very believable at all. THere is to much that does not ring true!
not believable  Aug 18, 2007
I read a lot of true crime books and did not find a lot of this book to be believable at all. First of all a psych hospital would of never just admit Cindy when just showing up at the hospital like she did!! I also do not believe the treatment that she was goiven while at the hospital,since I did work for 13 years at a psych facility and never once heard of or witnessed anything like this.
Also AI do not believe her father would of admitted to his guilt the way she said it happened.
I do believe that her father murdered her mother which is very tragic. I just feel that a lot of the story is not truth and only Cindys version. Which you can tell by the reading of the book that she is not very believable. THe authors did do a good job, but should of verified more of the TRUE facts of the story by other.
