Hallmark Channel's "When Calls The Heart" on DVD


One of television’s most romantic and family friendly dramas, When Calls The Heart: Trials of the Heart, is now out on DVD

Inspired by celebrated author Janette Oke's bestselling Canadian West book series, comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Starring Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy), Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210), and Jack Wagner (The Bold & The Beautiful, General Hospital), When Calls The Heart is “a beautiful story with roots in relationships, self-empowerment, and the enduring power of love” (Common Sense Media). 

Elizabeth Thatcher (Krakow) is an independent, 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 (Lissing) – in the small frontier town of  Coal Valley. But when she receives a telegram informing her that her mother has taken ill, she returns to Hamilton, her hometown, with Jack as her escort. Once in the comparably opulent Hamilton, Elizabeth and Jack are confounded by Jack’s ne’er-do-well brother and Elizabeth’s former suitor, Charles Kensington. But it is Elizabeth’s father, William, who drives a wedge between them when he suggests to class-conscious Jack that Charles would be a better match for his well-bred daughter. This is a story about love… frontier style.

I am a huge Janette Oke fan, I have watched all of the Hallmark movies based on her books.  Halmark really knows how to make some amazing movies and series, so if you have yet to see this series, now is the time. Janette Oke movies offer family friendly, faith based themes.  In the When Calls the Heart series you get it all, romance, adventure, mystery, a sense of community and faith.  It reminds me of a modern day Little House on the Prairie.  Even if you have not previously watched the series, you can still watch this movie and understand what is going on and fall in love with these characters.  This movie was the perfect tie in to the new season!

Executive produced by Michael Landon Jr., Brad Krevoy, and Brian Bird, When Calls The Heart airs on The Hallmark Channel, returning for Season 2.
