AllMusic Review by

Another fine disc from this Canadian band with Acadian folk roots. Following the high expectations of their terrific Beaupre's Home, they here deliver an equally impressive collection of traditional legends and heartrending love songs. The tightness of the band might be attributed to the fact that there are three siblings at its core (Michelle, Paul and Suzanne Campagne). It also helps that there are some fine songwriters also: a jumping weeper like "Fly All Over" is beautifully complemented by the haunting "Help Me Help You." This is an honest and affecting work.
