SYNOPSIS:

From Amazon Editorial:


"When Calls the Heart" tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coalmining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion.

The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher's wealthy father has doomed the lawman's career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate's daughter. 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.

The series is inspired by Janette Oke's bestselling book series about the Canadian West, and reunites Oke with Executive Producer and Director, Michael Landon, Jr.


When Calls The Heart “Lost and Found”
RELEASED TO DVD on 25 February 2014
(From the Television Series inspired by the writings of Janette Oke)


My Thoughts:

An Hallmark Channel movie directed by Michael Landon Jr., When Calls The Heart - Lost and Found is inspired by the Janette Oke's best selling series and has all the making of a classic. 
What better way to enjoy it therefore than with the whole family, sharing quality time the old fashioned way:TOGETHER

For those of you who had the opportunity to see 'Little House On The Prairie' produced by Michael's legendary father, I am certain this movie will bring back many souvenirs!

Janette Oke, Michael Landon Jr. and screen writer Brian Bird make a great team in this latest cooperation, providing viewers with Christian entertainment, a great cast and a change from Hollywood latests! 
This is a much needed and greatly refreshing approach to movies which anyone will appreciate! 

Anyone who had the opportunity to see the pilot movie (reviewed HERE) will notice a few changes of course in the cast but it still manages to come out 'new' with a different twist in the story as well as in the performances and provides good wholesome values to boot!

Filmed in British Columbia, Canada, it features breathtaking scenery and brings viewers a nostalgic look at life in a remote western town where the Mining Company rules everyone's life, the women fight for their families, the newly hired teacher instills hope in her students and Mounties keep the law!


Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth its 5 stars rating!!
