My thoughts:

No surprise here, we like the series so well we check each episode as you can see!

Janette Oke's engaging novel about a young society woman going West to teach children in a mining town was the inspiration for this series. When you combine her inspirational writing with talented Michael Landon Jr. directorial genuine know how, you discover true family entertainment! 

In this latest episode we see new development in Mountie Jack Thornton and Elizabeth's relationship. I found it endearing that both writer and director chose to play it lightly thus providing parents the opportunity to view this DVD with any age children. Rest assured however that this duo knows exactly how to pull the audience in with a winning formula: Engaging characters, great plots, beautiful costumes and colourful scenery. 

Judging from my family's reactions, this series is getting better all the time and will surely join the ranks of other families all time favourites such as Little House on the Prairie, thus proving that great directorial skills might well be an 'all in the family' gift!

5 Stars!
