When Calls The Heart: The Dance, DVD review

  • Studio: Word Entertainment
  • Approx. 87 minutes.
  • ASIN: B00KSON3L6


New miners arrive in Coal Valley to help with the final stages of reopening the mine and the town decides to celebrate with a dance at the end of the week. One of the new miners, Billy Hamilton has taken a special interest in Elizabeth and she is flattered by the attention. 

Meanwhile, pregnant widow Carla Noonan has moved in with Abigail and Elizabeth so the women can keep and eye on her for the remainder of her pregnancy. 

As Elizabeth and Billy's relationship develops, Jack becomes suspicious of Billy's motives for pursuing Elizabeth so persistently.

My thoughts:

Thanks to Hallmark this family series continuously brings viewers quality entertainment and values reminiscent of Little House On The Prairie
Based on Janette Oke's novels and produced by Michael Landon Jr., When Calls The Heart series has already attained many fans, young and old.

#4 in the series, The Dance showcases now the familiar faces of frontier teacher Elizabeth Thatcher and Canadian Mounty Jack Thornton. After the fatal mining accident, life is settling slowly in the small town. And when new miners arrive to fill the vacancies, amongst them is the handsome Billy Hamilton who spouts poetry.

Filmed in British Columbia, Canada, the series features breathtaking scenery and brings viewers a nostalgic look at life in a remote western town where the Mining Company is the heart of its life.

For those readers who have not yet seen the previous posts, be sure to check the first three episodes reviewed here:

- When Calls The Heart 

- When Calls The Heart: Lost and Found
- When Calls The Heart: A Telling Silence 

As anticipated from Janette Oke's novels and producer Michael Landon Jr., this is a refreshing approach to family entertainment everyone can enjoy!

4 Stars!

And here is a little bit of trivia for readers:

Aussie actor Daniel Lissing who plays Mounty Jack Thornton is also a popular singer/songwriter and performs to packed houses all over Sydney. Worth noting is that Daniel has performed for the Australian troops serving overseas in East Timor (Pacific Islands) and was formally recognized for his peacekeeping efforts by the Australian Defense Force.

  1. Well that's interesting I 've never heard of Daniel Lissing, but the face is envoking a memory.

    1. It seems he is as much a nice guy in real life than on the screen Merle. I understand he is not a newcomer to the Australian film community so that might be the reason.
      Hugs to the best Aussie Corgi (love that tail!),
