Singer/songwriter Heller continues very much in the style of her previous album releases with this intimate acoustic gem. Fans will not be disappointed as Heller pours out her soul once again to the backdrop of acoustic guitar and some beautiful, well-crafted melodies with a hint of Americana thrown in for good measure. Whilst this album doesn't do anything new or particularly original, what it does, it does well. The uncomplicated acoustic guitar and vocal combination nicely emphasises Heller's crystal clear voice and consistently excellent songwriting skills throughout the album. The instrumental highlights of this album include the harmonica on "Not Mine Anyway", the haunting and beautifully arranged strings on the moving track "Invisible Love" and, of course, the deftly picked acoustic heard on all of the tracks. The short and warm title track delivers a powerful and simple message of love and salvation that is made all the more stirring by the simplicity with which it is delivered.
