Reviews of No Blood Relative

“One of the most interesting elements of this story is the realism that Terry Carroll creates in the stifling atmosphere of Crooked Elbow, Alta. . . An agonizingly accurate portrait of the prejudice and claustrophobia of small-town life.” Judy Liebner, The London Free Press

“This is a classy first novel with a lot of style . . . a fine hand for setting and mood that can carry his story a good long way. All in all, a writer to watch.” Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail

“This first novel is an admirable one: Canada has lots of room for writers like Terry Carroll.” The Halifax Daily News
