When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Hero Review

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the dvd from 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 Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wild frontier. Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing, (Eye Candy), Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) and Lori Loughlin (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). New arrivals bring excitement, love and danger to Hope Valley. Pastor Frank has been reinstated following the revelation of his criminal past, but the arrival of his old cohorts, the Garrison Gang, are making life- and his relationship with Abigail- very tense. Bill Avery has his own debt to settle with Jake Garrison, and Jack intends to stay Bill's  hand from killing the man. Meanwhile, Lee's foot injury brings a pretty nurse, Faith Carter from Hamilton...and soon after, her possessive fiance. And Jack rises to the defense of new settlers on Gowen's land when Gowen abruptly raises their rent.

My thoughts-

Something I really love about When Calls the Heart is that there is a big ensemble cast and while the show centers on Elizabeth and Jack, there are always several other story lines going to keep things interesting. In this episode, a familiar face from Hamilton shows up in Hope Valley. I thought it was interesting to see Faith again and in a different setting. Poor Abigail's love life is always so stressful, but I love seeing her navigate her life. One of my favorite stories in this episode was about a little girl in Elizabeth's class that has just moved in from elsewhere and is not having an easy time adjusting. There isn't too much going on with Jack and Elizabeth's relationship in this episode, which is a good thing, it just means that things are going well which I am always happy about. I hope those two get it together and get married at some point! I have said this before but I love watching this show and I love that I can watch it without worry in front of my children. It is a great show for them to watch that shows drama, comedy, romance and how life was different during this time period. It is a great show for the whole family.

  1. I love this series. It is full of fun characters, the stories are great, it is inspiring, and clean, clean, clean. It remind me a lot of Little House on the Prairie. Michael Landon Jr. Is the director.
