"This is a wonderful album showcasing the work of songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, Janis Carper, in nicely layered arrangements . . . Carper's throaty alto resonates with solid womanly strength. Her lyrics are simple, effective poetry without frills. . .Got to hear this one for yourself!"
