It's always exciting when I get a package in the mail. Reviewing makes that little thrill possible for me. Thank you Edify Media! This time it was the latest DVD from When Calls the Heart, Heart of a Hero. As I told you last time, When Calls the Heart is basically a clean, romantic, and funny soap opera shown on the Hallmark Channel. I enjoy the interplay between all the characters. I've been watching and reviewing WCTH movies since November of 2013, and I never tire of Jack and Elizabeth and the other delightful main characters.
Heart of a Hero provides needed closure to the Garrison Gang issue that caused Abigail, Pastor Frank, and Bill Avery no small amount of trouble and anxiety. It also, to keep things interesting, began two more storylines that could cause a little trouble in the future. That's the way with continuing series.... ~smile~
You don't want to miss this one. One of my favorite things is that you can really see a new level of maturity in Jack and Elizabeth's relationship. They seem to be talking and hearing better. I'm proud of them. ~smile~
I continue to hear the same complaint from my 14 year old daughter— costuming is not consistent with the time period, and the ladies of Hope Valley have more clothes than is possible for widows in a town with no dress shop! Amy's trying to figure out exactly when it's set. She has narrowed it down to sometime around 1915 because of a Farmer's Almanac that Elizabeth consulted in a previous episode, but there is no mention of World War I. I guess we'll just have to keep watching.
The official description:
New arrivals bring excitement, love and danger to Hope Valley. Pastor Frank has been reinstated following the revelation of his criminal past, but the arrival of his old cohorts, the Garrison Gang, are making life (and his relationship with Abigail) very tense. Bill Avery has his own debt to settle with Jake Garrison, and Jack intends to stay Bill’s hand from killing the man. Meanwhile, Lee’s foot injury brings a pretty nurse, Faith Carter from Hamilton… and soon after, her possessive fiance. And Jack rises to the defense of new settlers on Gowen’s land when Gowen abruptly raises their rent.
From celebrated author Janette Oke (The Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing, Jack Wagner, and Lori Loughlin star in When Calls The Heart, "a beautiful story with roots in relationships, self-empowerment, and the enduring power of love", (Common Sense Media).
