So glad to find this again, after all these years (I rented the original from our library 6 or 7 years ago). I seem to recall that the cover art showed a bit more of the girl, though - I hate to think it's been censored! Good luck with the treatment. I'm already looking forward to the next album...

Worth The Wait - Oh Yes!
author: Cecilia Pattison-Levi (BMA Magazine Australia)
After waiting for the last seven years for Katherine Crowe’s debut album “Missionary Girl” to be released, it has finally seen the light of day and it was worth the wait. The album has not dated in any way and is a confident recording of a blossoming singer songwriter. The album is a mix of light and dark topics and sounds. The topics of suicide, losing faith, wasted friends and betrayal of the 'Missionary Girl' surface but all wrapped up in surprising musical shifts. The stand out is the first track the fantastic song ‘Treading Water’ which I managed to track down as a single in 2006 from the USA and it is breezy pop number. Crowe utilizes the sounds of blues 'Escape', jazz 'Cleaner Man'and pop and rock to fill out her interesting songs. For all those waiting for this album, this is definitely worth adding to your collection and I can’t wait to hear more from Katherine Crowe. I thank the day when I saved that Q magazine review and kept trying to find this album. Outstanding!

Pure, clear, gentle voice. She's a younger Judy Collins or Joan Baez, and the simple piano background is a relief from over-production, and my favorite numbers are the ones without her own voice harmonizing on a separate track. Just pure simple beauty, great old songs in a great new voice.
