When Calls the Heart: Heart and Soul

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the movie from Edify Media in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are 100% my own.

About the dvd-

From celebrated author Janette Oke (The Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wild frontier. Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy), and Lori Laughlin (Full House, 90210) star in When Calls the Heart, "a beautiful story with roots in relationships, self-empowerment, and the enduring power of love" (Common Sense Media).

Further complicating their new romance, Jack and Elizabeth must party company so that Jack can return to Hope Valley and his duties as a Mountie. Elizabeth, however, remains in Hamilton, where she finds herself tending to her family and spending time with handsome Charles Kensington. Back in Hope Valley, Rosemary has been offered a role in a play in San Francisco and makes preparations to leave with two producers. When Jack learns that the "producers" have taken Rosemary in the opposite direction- for New  York- he races after them to rescue her....a gamble that ends up being the talk of the town when he and Rosemary spend a night together.

My thoughts-

I absolutely never get tired of this show! I love historical fiction and seeing it come to life on the big screen is always cool, but seeing it play out as a tv series is like every book nerd's dream (or at least this book nerd's). What I have loved about the second season of When Calls the Heart is seeing Elizabeth in an entirely different element. It is fun seeing her back and home and trying to remain the person she has become but absolutely falling into a comfort zone being back in the life she is used to. Plus the costuming department is probably having a ball dressing Elizabeth when she is home in Hamilton, there are such pretty clothes! There is also another handsome gentleman in the mix, Charles Kensington. He is a nice, and handsome man but he is no Jack! It is fun, but also has me on edge sometimes, watching how this love triangle might unfold. Meanwhile Jack has complications of his own with his former flame Rosemary. There is a lot of drama packed in to this 88 minute dvd! If you enjoy watching period pieces, you definitely need to be watching When Calls the Heart!
