When Calls the Heart: Complete Season 2

Disclosure of material connection- I received the dvd set 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-

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

Elizabeth thatcher (Krakow) is a 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- in the small frontier town of Hope Valley. But life on the frontier can hand you many tough turns, and so it is for Jack and Elizabeth as they face their very different upbringings, the pressures put upon them by family, rival suitors and even various criminal counterfeiters and kidnappers in their quest to find their place in this remote and rugged land.

My thoughts-

I absolutely adore When Calls The Heart. There is nothing else on television even remotely like it. I love getting lost in the old Canadian west, with it's cute sets and eccentric townspeople and, of course, the great romance. I love that there is a show on the air full of drama, humor and romance that I can watch while my kids are in the room. When Calls the Heart is based on a book series by Janette Oke about a woman from a wealthy family who leaves it all behind to be a school teacher in a tiny little town. She comes to love Hope Valley and finds romance with the handsome Mountie Jack. The first season introduced us to these characters and Hope Valley and set a great foundation. Season 2 was full of drama and several twists and turns. We even get to see Elizabeth go back home and live in her other fancier world for a while. There is also another romantic interest introduced for Elizabeth and we get to meet her sisters as well as Jack's brother. I love this box set because it is great to have all of the episodes in one place. There are also a couple of bonus discs with this set including behind the scenes footage with a cast and a short film inspired by a true story about two young children in Africa who lose their parents to the AIDS virus. It is a special bonus to get this short film in edition to this great show, prepare to be inspired! When Calls The Heart is one of my favorite shows on tv right now and I am counting down the days until season three continues in February. I can not wait! I recommend When Calls The Heart if you enjoy historical fiction or want a family friendly show.
