Singer/songwriter Sara Groves has a compelling, passionate voice, capable of conveying the emotional nuances of a song with a straightforward, no-frills integrity. But the most powerful component in her artistry is her songwriting. "Hello Lord" finds her wrestling with a decision and looking for divine wisdom. On "Painting Pictures of Egypt," she sings of the difficulties involved in moving forward. The title track is the album's emotional focal point and the ideal example of why this young artist should have a long-running dialogue with a wide audience for years to come.
