Northern Sky Magazine, Allan Wilkinson

"...the availability of top class players is a key factor in the album’s approach.... Overall the album, in almost every aspect, reminds one of Mary Chapin-Carpenter at her finest ... an utterly satisfying album."
Living Tradition, Nigel Schofield

Flyingshoes, Maurice Hope

"The title track's theme of emigrants fleeing the famine, reveals some marvellous playing."
The Musician

"Strawbs fans have always believed former member Brian Willoughby to be one of the best acoustic guitarists in the business. Add the beautiful voice of Cathryn Craig, then record the album in Nashville where only the best make it as session men and you are set for an excellent album. Simply said the playing is spot on."
Friends of Fairport, Ian Burgess

"The sound is full and rich with Cathryn's voice big and bold out front."
R2 Magazine

We love the excellent arrangements, Cathryn's emotive vocal, Brian's excellent guitar playing, the interplay between the instruments on the album and the flavour and rhythm of Native American music on some of tracks. It is a very worthy addition to your music collection and a huge treat for your ears! (Full review here)
Lauren Canyon Music

The goods get delivered. Boy - she can sing! Can he ever play guitar! They write good songs as well. A terrific mix of Nashville Americana meets English folk. A marriage made for all the right reasons. Not a dud song in the mix.
Roddy Campbell, Penguin Eggs Magazine, Canada
