Storyline

A widow's forgiveness. A killer's remorse. Bond of Silence is the true life story of a shocking murder and the amazing bond that came from it. Katy and Bob live a perfect life in a small close knit town. He's a respected lawyer, a renowned tri-athlete. She just had twins. It is New Year's Eve. Teens converge on the house next door. Always the good neighbor, Bob goes to shut it down. A confrontation occurs. Then he's dead. No teen comes forward. The media pours in. Headlines scream. Katy hunts for answers. But no one talks. A bond of silence covers the town. The police do an undercover sting and someone's caught. Ryan, a popular kid, tries to be cool, but the burden of what he did that night is unbelievable. Ryan and his attorney want to plead not guilty, but then Katy and Ryan meet. Where Katy should be a grieving wife, she becomes a supportive mother. Rather than berating, she listens. Rather than accusing, she comforts. And Ryan tells her what happened. Step by step. When Ryan ... Written by anonymous

The ending was the best part
5 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must have missed the advisory at the beginning that this was at least loosely based on a true story, but I pretty quickly guessed because the plot wasn't all neatly tied up with ribbons but had the messiness and uncertainty of real life. I was a bit disappointed in the production overall -- I think there were potentials in the story director Peter Werner and writers Brian D. Young, Edithe Swensen and Teena Booth didn't capture -- but I was especially impressed by the ending and would have liked more about just how Katy McIntosh let go of her desire for revenge and found it in her heart to forgive her husband's killer and even make joint public speaking appearances with him to try to warn other teenagers of the risks of drunken partying and do what she could to prevent a similar tragedy from happening to someone else. (Sequel, anyone?) She showed a lot more nobility of spirit than the previous reviewer, who seems to think she should have lived the rest of her life in a state of livid hatred and let his crazy, stupid action go on ruining her life over and over again.
