I received one of the new DVD’s called “ When Calls the Heart – Heart and Home ” from Elliott with Edify Media, Inc. and was asked to watch the movie and post a review on my blog about it. I had already seen the the other “When Calls The Heart” movies before this, and love them, you can find my reviews on the others here.
All of the “When Calls the Heart” shows are amazing. I always look forward to them being on TV, or being able to share the DVD’s with friends when they come over. This series is amazing, and it’s one that even my husband and son like to watch. You learn from the story, feel the love and other emotions that are felt by the characters, and just enjoy the beautiful portrayal of times past.
I was able to enjoy an online chat awhile back with the wonderful star Erin Krakow. What an amazing woman and actor. It was so fun to hear her take on things and to realize that she is a young lady and not from back in the times when these scenes show. I loved hearing about the shows she loves on TV today, and how she feels about where the story is going. What a fun time!
This title of the series, has some real drama! I found myself yelling “NO” at the TV a few times, and once again just hoping for things to work out for Jack and Elizabeth. Seeing them deal with family drama, was also great – that never goes away in any era, does it? It’s so fun to have your thoughts of how it should go, and twists on what you expected…I love it! I definitely recommend this title, as well as the others, for your family to watch together.
Thanks Elliott at Edify Media, Inc. for letting us view this movie and give our opinions on it.
When Calls The Heart – “Heart and Home”

“A TERRIFIC SERIES FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY” -Dove Foundation
“ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND VERY ENTERTAINING” -Movie Guide
Nashville , Tennessee: When Calls the Heart, Produced by Michael Landon Jr. and inspired by the best-selling books by Janette Oke, tells the story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young woman of privilege, working as a teacher in a prairie town in the Western Frontier. Still anxious to win
the approval of Elizabeth’s father, Jack now has to overcome an unforseen problem- his brother. He and Elizabeth’s sister Julie are now planning to run off together, infuriating her father, and complicating Jack’s own plans of courting Elizabeth. To make matters worse, his brother Tom, and Julie are in an automobile accident.
When Calls the Heart- “Heart and Soul” is a feature length film from the episodes of the When Calls the Heart television series. Season two of the When Calls the Heart television series debuted on the Hallmark Channel to more than 2 million viewers.

Synopsis: 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 with roots in relationships, self-empowerment, and the enduring power of love” (Common Sense Media). Jack and Elizabeth leave Hope Valley and rush back to the city of Hamilton when they learn that Jack’s brother, Tom, was involved in an automobile accident… with Elizabeth’s sister, Julie! But Tom and Julie are hiding something about the incident, a deceit that puts Jack and Elizabeth at odds with their families… and with each other. Their trip is further complicated when Tom and Julie endeavor to run off together – via train this time – and Elizabeth’s father offers Jack a job – an offer that puts Jack and Elizabeth’s fledgling romance in peril yet again.

I remember when this first came out. I tried to watch it, but lost interest. I may need to give it another try and see how it turns out the second time I watch this series. Thanks for sharing!
There are people who love it, or not. That’s why there are so many shows on today! I just love that we can watch it together as a family and it has soul!
This looks like a movie I’d enjoy watching and I’d probably be talking to the screen, too while watching it. No, I’ve never had to make an actual choice over a relationship, thank goodness!
This looks like a nice family friendly movie. I would like that.
It’s perfect for a family movie night, Jessica – I love this series!
I never had to make a choice with a relationship. I only dated a few guys.
That’s a great thing, Tara! 🙂
