When Calls The Heart

Since Downton Abbey has wrapped for the year, I have a divine little recommendation for you.  The Hallmark Channel unveiled its new show, When Calls The Heart earlier in the year.

Being a fan of Little House on the Prairie, I have been watching since day 1. The show is about Elizabeth, a well-to-do young woman who took a teaching assignment in Coal Valley.  Upon arrival, she has been dealt a great number of character building opportunities but maintains a positive, can-do attitude.  Also sent to the town is Jack, a mountie.  As constable, he has been asked to investigate a great many cases in the town (church burned down, the mine caved in, etc.) but is REALLY there to look after Elizabeth.  He is not happy about the last responsibility but has no choice.  Elizabeth's family has got money and connections. 

What makes this family friendly show so wonderful is the sweetness of the scripts, the sumptuous costuming and set design, and the chemistry of the cast.  Remember Lori Loughlin from Full House... Uncle Jesse's wife?  Yep!  She is in it and is always the voice of strength and reason.

Elizabeth is played by Erin Krakow, a Hallmark Channel regular.

Daniel Lissing plays Jack... and he is one dreamy mountie.  I love the play between Elizabeth and Jack, their witty banter makes me smile.  This show makes for a great Saturday night.

There are a number of episodes left in this season so jump in and watch!  It airs on The Hallmark Channel at 9/8c... but check your provider in case you need to catch the East Coast feed like I do. You can also catch previously aired episodes!

Seriously, who can resist this?!
