Blind Sympathy by Roberta B. Bombonato
Vafara is a blind composer who creates new symphonies for the world. Alone in a cabin with only her service dog, she’s not concerned in the slightest for zero cell phone reception in a secluded in the woods. This is her special time where she can be free to let her musical compositions speak to her.
Israfel is a demon one assignment short from graduation: possession of an innocent soul. He always knew he was different from others of his kind, and meeting the pure Vafara confirmed it.
Will he be able to possess a passionate musician when all he wants to do is hold her? Or will he throw it all away and risk an Angels and Demons war to save her innocent soul from the dark fate that awaits?
About The Author
Roberta Bombonato has been hearing characters in her head since she was born, but only began writing down their stories since 2007. They can be a rowdy bunch and only leave her alone when the book is finished. She calls herself a basket-case, weaving stories with twisted pain and unconditional love.
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Roberta moved to the United States at the age of 11 and became a U.S. Citizen. She currently resides in fabulous, sunny Florida with her disabled veteran husband, two loving dogs, Kent and Pup, one eccentric parrot, Apollo, and two Guinea pigs to keep him company.
In 2009, she released her first book AN UNCONVENTIONAL FAMILY. It received an honorable mention is the 2009’s Hollywood Book Festival in the Wild Card category.
There was a period of 10 years in which she was plagued with writer’s block. The Ketogenic diet has helped her get back in the game, stronger than ever. She even became a certified Keto and Fasting Coach through Dr. Berg. She helps clients lose weight and feel great like she does. She documents her weight-loss journey on Instagram @nerdyketonian.

Redemption is a common theme in her extremely different stories. There is something so beautiful about a very LARGE character arch. Triggers evoke such emotion and her characters find a way of concealing the hurt because vulnerability is a weakness. The power lies in change.
Roberta vows to keep writing her character’s stories even if they don’t follow the regular formulas of the writing world. She believes that in order to do them justice, they will not be put inside a conventional box. This is where pushing the envelope will result in unpredictability.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have not read anything by Roberta Bombonato, so this book for me was a new adventure with an author who has such an awesome imagination and talent for writing a story you can actually get carried away in (if you get my drift). For me, I believe Roberta has the writing style to make her stories unique and believable, which I enjoy immensely. Blind Sympathy was a fascinating story in my opinion as another reviewer mentioned a true “Beauty and the Beast” story. If you enjoy the paranormal genre, you will love this book.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, thank you, Roberta. In addition, my actual star count is above five stars for the talent and imagination of the author. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
