From Amazon Editorial Review:

Feeling sorry for 8-year-old mute Rosaleen Sullivan, teacher Elizabeth Thatcher reaches out to the little girl as they share lunch. But when Elizabeth is called away and then returns, Rosaleen is missing! Meanwhile, constable Jack Thornton discovers evidence that Cat Montgomery may have been involved in a suspicious church fire. Could the two cases be related? 

My Thoughts:

Readers will remember reviews of When Calls The Heart and Lost and Found , wholesome Christian entertainment, a change from Hollywood latests!

Not since 'Little House On The Prairie' has a series been more heartwarming! Based on Janette Oke's book When Calls The Heart, each episode is directed/produced by Michael Landon Jr. Not surprising, this Hallmark presentation 'A Telling Silence' is sure to delight viewers once again!

In this episode Constable Jack Thornton investigates a church fire whilst Elizabeth continues to teach in the little mining town of Coal Valley where town folks are still recovering from the latest mining disaster. Amongst them are Rosaleen who has not uttered a word since she lost her Dad in the accident and a school boy whose crush on his new teacher is as sweet as can be!

I'll mention quickly Rip the basset hound, a new addition to the jail house for he is sure to win hearts.

Costume designer Sandra Burns earns a mention on this blog due once again to her fantastic costumes and as always, a heartfelt thank you to Michael Landon Jr. for keeping tradition in the family: this is the sort of movie you do not have to fear showing to the whole family! 

Filled with valuable family values, A Telling Silence brings fun, clean entertainment which gets better and better as the series grows!

Note: Distributed by Word Entertainment, When Calls the Heart “A Telling Silence” is now available to purchase in Christian Retail since April 22nd, 2014.

    1. We have sun Diane but it is far from hot here!
      Thank you for entering the giveaway,

    2. As I watched the video I thought of "Little House On The Prairie".

      This seems like a great video series.

      God bless.

    3. It has a little something for everyone Victor, Michael Landon Jr. has his Dad's touch for that!
      All the best,

  2. It's always good to hear about wholesome family entertainment in this day of sex- and violence-filled movies. There are so few things that are worthy of a family sitting down together and watching.

    1. Judy, I hope you will have the opportunity to watch it with the family, it's really nice not to have to worry about language, actions and so on...We have forego broadcast telly for the very reason we could not see it as a family.
      God bless,


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
