This isn't a traditional romance by any stretch of the
imagination. Nevertheless, romantic overtones resonate throughout
this compelling novel. I especially enjoyed the way the book went
from present to past and back to present. I highly recommend this

Stanfill's message on Romantic Times BookClub Magazine
by a Talented Storyteller
I rarely find a 'first book' to be all that a publisher says it is.
In the case of THE BLOOD REMEMBERS,
however, I must make an exception. Terry Stanfill has written a story
that rivals another great first work, THE EIGHT.
Terry Matthews, Reviewer, Bookbrowser
Remembers is a superbly written debut novel by Terry
Stanfill and documents her from first page to last as a writer of
great storytelling abilities.
Mid West Book Review.
Remembers is a haunting novel. I am awed by its structure.
Like the names of its characters, it seems to be written in the form
of a rose. Inside, there is the story of Rosamonde. The outer petals
are the story of Rose. It is only with the unfurling of all the petals
that the rose blooms for those few minutes in all its perfect beauty.
Geri Wilson, San Marino Tribune
the author of an excellent novel. Go with the romantic flow and the
historical accuracy and you'll have a grand time in front of the fire.

Summer will always be associated with reading for me.
I offer a summer book suggestion that tickles me on many levels. First
of all, the Blood Remembers
by Terry Stanfill is one of those yummy books that I—cliché
that it is—couldn’t

After reading a good book such as The
Blood Remembers, you may be surprised to find out that
your favorite new author was a West Haven citizen. Tension and surprise
mount to a marvelous climax in this tale where past, present and future
as well as real and imagined worlds meet.
Taralynn Villano, Correspondent, The West
Un roman aussi riche d’histoire et de culture,
qui reste cependant toujours accessible est un véritable trésor.
la combinaison de beaucoup de talent et de sensibilité qui
en fait un livre aussi spécial et précieux, aussi mystérieux
et passionnant. Le lire me rappelle le plaisir qu’on éprouve
quand on se perd dans la contemplation d’une tapisserie
« mille-fleurs », un détail conduit à un
autre détail, un pétale conduit à une autre feuille,
et bientôt, on est sous le charme d’une « invitation
au voyage » magique parmi une forêt de
« symboles et de signes ».

I don’t usually recommend books. I have to read them first.
However, The Blood Remembers by Terry Stanfill is a dynamite escape
from today’s problems.
