Living in a 19th century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.
I was a huge fan of these shows when I read them in book form! So, when I was given the chance to review the When Calls The Heart series as they came out on DVD I was pleased beyond measure. I love wholesome shows that I can watch with my kids that show them how relationships are supposed to be.
There is enough drama and entertainment to keep the kids enjoying the shows. Yet, there’s plenty of wonderful romance to keep me intrigued. I love how they keep things simple and honest. The couple looks really good together and they form a friendship first.
I highly recommend this series for anyone. It’s a great way to enjoy TV time with your family.
