One also hears a little David Wilcox new age sentiment, but again she sings with a strong feminine authority. Her lyrics yearn for heart and home without resorting to musical or lyrical clichés. She is supported on this CD by a fine cast of musical characters; Tim O'Brian, Mike Marshall, and Jerry Douglas. One wishes the tempo picked up once in a ...

    AWESOME!!!!

    An awesome CD. I agree, she needs to record another one. Very touching songs...several would be very neat at a memorial service.

    Wish there were more

    I'm not sure what it is about Leslie Tucker. She has a wonderful voice and the lyrics are very good, but it's not like there aren't other singers with voices as good. For me, however, her voice and this album just hits all the right places. It is one of my favorite albums, and I really wish she would record another. Leslie, are you listening?
