This is the British singer/songwriter Julie Hall's follow up to 2004's acclaimed 'Bluebells Rising' album. As with her debut album, this collection of songs, co-written by lyricist Robert Eggleston, has a largely folksy feel to it, with some beautiful Celtic harmonies thrown in for good measure. With a voice reminiscent of Iona's Joanne Hogg and a refreshing use of melody instruments such as violin, wooden flute and saxophone this album has many beautiful moments. The only slight disappointment is the use of electronic drums that are no substitute for the real thing. This aside Julie and Robert have crafted an album of heartfelt lyrics with a rich, textured sound that lifts the listener and takes them on a journey with their Maker.

Really enjoy Julie's latest album. Especially like "The Weaver", track 4 of the album. It has the theme that all can seem to be going along in the same predictable way but under the surface God, The Weaver, hears the prayers of His people and is putting in place all the elements to bring His plan to fruition.

Well worth a listen.
