When Calls the Heart: Heart of the Family

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

About When Calls the Heart- 

From celebrated author Janette Oke (The Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide 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).

Elizabeth returns to Hope Valley and immediately volunteers to look after a neighbor's rural homestead....and his two children, an undertaking which proves to be a bigger chore than she'd imagined. But when Jack lends a hand, and they wind up chatting by the fire,. all seems right in Hope Valley and the world. Meanwhile, in Hamilton, Bill Avery sets about busting a counterfeiting ring wide open, an endeavor which surprisingly leads him back to Hope Valley,  where he mysteriously declines Jack's help. But Bill isn't the only big-town visitor: Elizabeth is even more surprised to see her former suitor Charles Kensington, standing right in the middle of her schoolhouse!

My thoughts-

Just looking at the adorable cover of the dvd you can tell that Jack and Elizabeth have a pretty cute relationship. What I love most about this show is that are some incredibly romantic moments, but romantic moments that are also innocent and can be watched by younger eyes. I love watching When Calls the Heart with my 7 year old daughter, Jack is the perfect example of the type of man she should be seeking for her life when she's older!

Elizabeth is back in Hope Valley after being gone for a while to tend to her sick mother. She is welcomed back with a party in town that pretty much everyone comes out to! Watching historical fiction always makes me wish I lived in a time when people still were all about community and come together for something like the homecoming of one of their own. There was a lot of Jack in this span of episodes which I am always happy about, but the most fun thing that I got a kick out of was Elizabeth volunteering herself to run a homestead and take care of two children. I knew she would have no trouble with the children, but taking care of a homestead? Watching her milk a cow was hilarious! There is also some drama with Nora showing up in town AND with Charles showing up in town as well! I will never grow tired of this show. It is great for the whole family and always packed with lots of drama, humor and romance. It may be sappy at times but there is nothing wrong with a little old fashioned sap! I will be hoping for (and tunning in to) many seasons to come!
