When Calls the Heart: Heart & Home

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 the show-

When Calls the Heart is a television show on the Hallmark Channel based on the writings of Janette Oke that debuted on the Hallmark Channel to more than 3 million viewers, making it the #2 show for the night on all of cable for the primary telecast at 9 p.m and #3 overall in households. The show is about Elizabeth Thatcher, a young high society woman who is now working as a teacher on the western frontier.

About the episode-

Jack and Elizabeth leave Hope Valley and rush back to the city of Hamilton when they learn that Jack's brother, Tom, was involved in an automobile accident...with Elizabeth's sister, Julie But Tom and Julie are hiding something about the incident, a deceit that puts Jack and Elizabeth at odds with their families...and with each other. Their trip is further complicated when Tom and Julie endeavor to run off together- via train this time- and Elizabeth's father offers Jack a job- an offer that puts Jack and Elizabeth's fledgling romance in peril yet again.

My thoughts-

This season has been full of so much drama! I am loving the addition of Tom and Julie to the story lines. They definitely add a new flare to the show. What I don't love are the things getting in the way for Jack and Elizabeth. There have been some intense moments and misunderstandings in Heart & Home and it makes me want to yell at my tv. I really feel bad for Jack, I feel like I relate more to his side of things, but  feel bad for Elizabeth too because she doesn't mean any harm and doesn't realize how her reactions to certain things make Jack feel. I love the sweet and very romantic relationship of Jack and Elizabeth and I absolutely hate seeing it strained. I have loved seeing Elizabeth interact with her family and in the complete opposite environment of what we are used to seeing of her usually being in Hope Valley. There are no shortage of interesting characters this season. I can't wait to see what happens with all of the residents of Hope Valley next!

When Calls the Heart is inspired by a series of novels by Janette Oke. You can find these novels on
