When young the young schoolteacher Elizabeth Thatcher sets off from her high society home to teach school on the edge of civilization she was unaware of what lay in store.

Through the film When Calls The Heart and the first two episodes of the television series by the same name, journey with Elizabeth to the edge of the frontier as she discovers love, laughter, and purpose in a tiny mining town.
For the young Elizabeth Thatcher (Poppy Drayton) her only dream was to teach. Teach, that was, somewhere safe and comfortable like the high society prep school down the road. When an unexpected turn of events finds her assigned to a remote outpost on the edge of the Canadian frontier Elizabeth is at first hesitant. Her family is more than hesitant. They are appalled she would even consider it. Not known for her courage or adventurous spirit in the least, the young protagonist of When Calls The Heart has all but made up her mind to refuse the position. That is, until she discovers her old Aunt Elizabeth's diary by accident. Now Aunt Elizabeth (Maggie Grace) is never talked about. The beloved sister of Elizabeth's father disappeared years ago. So naturally the young Elizabeth is curious. Sneaking the diary back to her own bedroom Elizabeth cracks the book open. Viewers are then whisked back in time-- through a series of flashbacks-- to experience the story of the Aunt Elizabeth hidden in the diary. Two stories in one, in the film When Calls The Heart! The young Elizabeth soon discovers that her missing aunt was also a teacher-- on the frontier. Inspired by Aunt Elizabeth's story-- one of courage, love, adventure, and a dash of romance-- the young Elizabeth Thatcher sets off to prove that she too can face, and survive, the frontier. Will her determination be enough, however, or will she fail to accomplish her purpose?
Episode One: Lost And Found
Picking up where the film When Calls The Heart left off, the first episode of the beloved series based on Janet Oke's books When Calls The Heart: Lost and Found finds the young Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow) adjusting to her new life in the frontier mining town of Coal Valley. Things are a bit more difficult than she expected, however. A recent accident at the coal mine has left most of the children in her classroom orphaned, and their mothers widowed. To make matters more difficult, the newly assigned town constable-- a Mountie by the name of Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing)-- is unsure that she-- the high society girl that she is-- is capable of handling a school on the edge of civilization. When a board bearing a message from one of the dead fathers is discovered in the mine rubble, the town explodes as each family attempts to claim the board-- and the message-- as their own. When the plank mysteriously disappears, however, Elizabeth and Jack must lay aside their prejudice and doubts in order to save their new town. When Calls The Heart: Lost and Found continues the journey of Elizabeth Thatcher.
