I’ll admit, there are times that I wish we still had cable TV. And one channel that I know we’d watch a lot is the Hallmark Channel. They have such great family programming available, such as the When Calls the Heart series. While I’ve shared before that it’s nothing like the novel series of the same name, it’s still good, clean, family-friendly programming; and I love that.
Recently, the show started into its 3rd season, and we were lucky enough to receive the first movie to check out. (I believe that each movie is actually the equivalent of 2 episodes of the show.)
About It Begins with Heart
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), Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210) and Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) star in When Calls The Heart: It Begins With Heart, an especially romantic film originally broadcast under the title, A New Year’s Kiss.
In the days before the big New Year’s Eve celebration, Hope Valley sees some unpredictable resolutions. For instance, Abigail sets out to catch whoever’s been stealing from her kitchen – and finds herself in charge of two orphans in the process.
Elizabeth resolves to take charge of Jack’s dog, Rip, in an attempt to remedy Rip’s apparent jealousy of their relationship. Rosemary is determined to win a San Francisco Herald essay contest about a “real frontier family”… and has to pose as Lee’s wife when a reporter from the paper shows up. And Bill Avery tries his best to convince Jack that he’s not the one who should be behind bars for counterfeiting.
Meanwhile, two visitors in town ponder sticking around and causing trouble for both Jack and Pastor Frank!
Heidi Says . . .
I love this series! We haven’t seen a movie from the series that we didn’t love. It’s a show that we can watch together as a family and never worry about bad language, violence, sexual content, etc. It’s just good, clean, uplifting family entertainment. It’s a genre that is lacking in the entertainment industry today. So, I’m very thankful to Michael Landon Jr. for producing it, and to the Hallmark Channel for airing it.
Without giving away the entire plot of the movie, suffice it to say that you end up cheering for Abigail to keep those kids, you spend a lot of time questioning whether Bill Avery is crooked or above board, and, as always, you’re cheering for Jack and Elizabeth as their love story continues to unfold.
