Kathy O'Connor of Davenport was inspired to release a CD of her music by what she calls "an incrediblygenerous act of kindness." A young woman who was moved by a home recording of "Out of the Ashes" told her, "This needs to get out to the world, and I am going to help you do that."

Ms. O'Connor describes the music on "Out of the Ashes" as "warm, rich and melodic, carrying the listener through a beautiful journey from pain to joy, fear to love and forgiveness to healing. Profound and inspired, this album has depth. If actively listened to, it can change your perspective, calm your spirit and bring you back to a place of peace and hope."
