When Calls the Heart- Heart of a Teacher


From celebrated author Janette Oke (The “Love Comes Softly” series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Erin Krakow (“Army Wives”), Daniel Lissing (“Eye Candy”), Jack Wagner (“Melrose Place”) and Lori Loughlin (“Full House,” “90210”) star in “When Calls The Heart,” a beautiful story filled with “many of the values we all hold precious such as love, family, friendship, community, faith and caring about one another” (Military Press). A stern new schoolteacher has replaced Elizabeth at the schoolhouse, and no one’s happy. But Gowen can do nothing because a letter from Thomas Higgins, the superintendent of schools, suggests Elizabeth used her family connections to get the job in the first place. Elizabeth goes to Cape Fullerton to confront Higgins, who instead of helping, propositions her! Meanwhile, Jack hears that the Mounties are struggling in the Northern Territories… and when he receives word that a good friend has been killed, he makes a decision that will change his and Elizabeth’s lives dramatically.

Dove Review

“When Calls the Heart—Heart of a Teacher” features two terrific episodes from this amazing and popular show’s fourth season in one DVD set. Bad things happen when good people do nothing is illustrated nicely in these episodes. Elizabeth is replaced as school teacher by the board, due to a superintendent who seeks revenge when she refused his advances in the past. She sets forth to clear her name and to win her job back. Some bullying goes on as well from the sons of the railroad superintendent. Elizabeth seeks to aid the problem to bring back a peaceful result, especially after learning the tragedy in the boys’ lives following a past break-up of their father and mother.

Jack makes a fateful decision about going to the Northern Territories to fight against several gangs that are wreaking havoc—a decision that could affect his future with Elizabeth. We are delighted to award the DVD episodes our Dove Seal for all ages. Five Doves all the way!
