Elizabeth Thatcher, a cultured young teacher in 1910, fears leaving her comfortable world in the city. But when she accepts a teaching position in a frontier town, she finds new purpose and love with a handsome Royal Canadian Mountie.
A classic prairie romance based upon the novel by best-selling author Janette Oke, WHEN CALLS THE HEART tells the story of Elizabeth Thatcher, a cultured, young Eastern school teacher who takes a teaching position in the hardscrabble Alberta frontier. Despite the many hardships of frontier life, she cares deeply for the school children. But she has closed her heart to love until she meets handsome Wynn, a member of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police.
This family movie, set in 1910 in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains, is a co-production with Believe Pictures of Los Angeles and directed by Michael Landon Jr.
I have personally read the "When Calls the Heart" book series by Janette Oke and as an avid reader, I thoroughly enjoyed it. She weaves together such amazing stories of faith, history, and adventure. I am truly looking forward to seeing these wonderful characters come to life - beyond my imagination!
