When Calls the Heart: Hearts in Question

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 the 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), Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) and Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210) star in When Calls the Heart, a beautiful story filled with "nostalgic... escapist fun" (!

About the episode-

An air of discord settles over Hope Valley when Jack's spirited mother, Charlotte (special guest star Brooke Shields), pays an unexpected visit...and stays with Elizabeth. While Charlotte "helpfully" critiques Elizabeth's skills as a housekeeper, pie-maker and teacher, Rosemary has become a bit of a taskmaster herself for those helping with her imminent wedding to Lee. Meanwhile, Gowen comes under suspicion for "irregularities" in the bank's bookkeeping, and as he and Nora prepare to leave town, Bill and Jack must contend with a violent storm, rising flood waters and the collapse of the Silverton mine!

My thoughts-

As usual, there is no shortage of drama or heart in this installment of When Calls the Heart. For a little bit of excitement, Jack's mom is in town. She stays with Elizabeth and her expectations are difficult to live up to, or so it seems. Rosemary is almost always one of my favorite parts of any episode, usually for her well meaning antics, but in this episode they really shine a light on the fact that she is a good person with a good heart as well. The end of the episode will have you on the edge of your seat as there is a huge storm and one of our favorite people gets caught out in it and washed away in the river! It was a nail biting scene. I always enjoy watching this show. It's good clean fun for the whole family and it gives the opportunity to talk about history and other places which my kids always find interesting. This is one of the best family friendly shows on tv!
