One of Narada's "Celtic Voices," Mary Mc Laughlin takes you on a journey which bridges the gap between mythical and modern Ireland on this beautiful, evocative album. The songs are original and provide a platform for her lush, multi layered vocals. The arrangements are embellished by the addition of guitars, keyboards, cello and uillean pipes, giving an overall soundscape which is almost visual.

The twelve songs are linked by the themes of Ireland, women and the sea and vary in content from the fantastic images of Celtic myths as in Yundah/Sealwoman and Fionnuala's Song to the very real emotions of an Irish woman making her way in this modern world as in Eyes of Africa and Trying to Forget.
