CFDb Review:

The series was a little disappointing to me after watching the pilot.  Changing the story a little bit, and the main characters.  There wasn’t any real Christianity in the first one.  It is a well done movie, but nothing special.  (Update – watched the 2nd in the series and liked it a LOT better.)  Planning on continuing to watch the series.  Check out the CFDb Movie Review.  Sonoma Christian Home Interview with Lori Loughlin.

When Calls The Heart: Canadian West The Series

Film Description:

“When Calls the Heart” tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coalmining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion.

The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman’s career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter. Living in a 19th century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.

The series is inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West, and reunites Oke with Executive Producer and Director, Michael Landon, Jr.
