If you are one of the over 22 thousand #Hearties who watched season 1 last year on the Hallmark channel, then you are probably anxiously awaiting the TWO HOUR season 2 premiere taking place this Saturday, April 25th. I am pretty sure you will not be disappointed! If you happen to be like me and had no idea such a series even existed, I highly suggest becoming acquainted with When Calls the Heart, especially if you are a fan of Janette Oke's and inspirational fiction.
The series is inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West. “When Calls the Heart” tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coal mining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion. The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman’s career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter. Living in a turn of the century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.
While I have never read any of the author's books, nor had I seen season 1 of the series, I found the season 2 premiere easy and enjoyable to watch. I was thrilled to see Lori Loughlin and Jack Wagner and discovered some new favorites such as Erin Krakow and Daniel Lissing. I'm not going to give anything away, but I will say that the end of the premiere left me wanting more! Watch the premiere this Saturday to continue following the lives of the widows, Elizabeth and Jack (I found myself really rooting for them!), and the rest of the folks in Coal Valley.
