Have you seen the new series When Calls the Heart on the Hallmark Channel this year? This storyline is so sweet and charming and a bit reminiscent of Downton Abby! I was a huge fan of Little House on the Prairie when I was younger and this series When Calls the Heart gives me the same nostalgic feeling.
Elizabeth Thatcher (Krakow) is an independent, strong-willed teacher who has foregone the life of the big city and found a job, a home – and a bit of unexpected romance with a handsome Mountie named Jack (Lissing) – in the small frontier town of Coal Valley. But when she receives a telegram informing her that her mother has taken ill, she returns to Hamilton, her hometown, with Jack as her escort. Once in the comparably opulent Hamilton, Elizabeth and Jack are confounded by Jack’s ne’er-do-well brother and Elizabeth’s former suitor, Charles Kensington. But it is Elizabeth’s father, William, who drives a wedge between them when he suggests to class-conscious Jack that Charles would be a better match for his well-bred daughter. This is a story about love… frontier style.
You should definitely catch up on this first season before you start the second season which began on April 25, 2015. This is a definite must see- we loved it.
