I have to tell you that the opportunity to watch the season premier of When Calls the Heart before it aired was the most exciting opportunity I've had for my blog in quite some time! So much so, that I actually went out and bought new speakers for my computer in order to watch it. The old speaker had been dead for about two months and I didn't have a good reason to replace it until now. :-)
About the series:
The series is inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West. “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 turn of the 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.
My family has watched every episode of the first season of When Calls the Heart. We fell in love with the series and I even started reading, and loving, Janette Oke books because of When Calls the Heart. There are very few TV series that I'm comfortable letting my children, who are 7 and 8, watch. Actually, besides PBS, this is the only show my kids can watch! They absolutely LOVE it and ask to watch it over and over again!
Be sure to watch the Season 2 Premier of When Calls the Heart April 25th, 8/7 Central on The Hallmark Channel!
