An Unbreakable Family by Roberta Bombonato
Marvin and Carmen’s marriage is fantastic. Giovanni, their son, is a lively boy who can hold his own against bullies. Akemi, their adopted daughter, is 18 and struggling to find herself. The past affects the present and the future in a big way.
How can she move forward without knowing the whole truth and trust the parents she has come to love? Digging for answers alerts the other side and forces, Marvin, to come out of retirement.
Uniting against domestic terrorists might be better than therapy for: AN UNBREAKABLE FAMILY
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 pids 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 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
As with the first book in this series “An Unconventional Family” Roberta tells this story in first-person narratives, which I enjoyed as it was a fantastic way for me to know what each character was thinking or planning.
As this is not my normal genre, I enjoyed this book as much as the first. Roberta’s writing and imagination are sure to keep any reader engaged. As with the first book, this book is full of action, romance, and family drama.
I would like to thank Roberta for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
