When Calls the Heart: Trials of the Heart

When Calls the Heart is an incredible Christian Film. Based on the stories by author Janette Oke's, it is the second in her award-winning series to be produced. Part drama and part historical and factual, it takes place on the Canadian frontier. In a rugged way of life, viewers are introduced to the main characters: both named Elizabeth and both with wonderful personalities. The two women are different, but have many of the same traits. They are self-empowered, care about others and put their future in their hands. Their journey as shown through this film is quite an incredible story.

An 88-minute film, When Calls the Heart is produced by Word Films. This drama with a hint of romance is approved for ages 12 and up and is worth the watch. It contains the first two episodes of season two. There are lessons and values for people of all ages and it focused around family.


The beginning of episode one introduces new characters as Elizabeth and Jack are becoming closer in Coal Valley. Jack is in the process of teaching Elizabeth how to ride a horse. As time is going on, they are getting to know each other even more. They laugh together and share good times. Afterwards, Jack kisses Elizabeth and tells her how she is the only woman she has ever kissed that was not his mother. He teases her that there have been five women before her, but she plays it off because both of them know that is not true. They spend an ample amount of time just gazing into each other's eyes. As they are there wondering about what their future together holds, they receive a telegram. It is saying that Elizabeth needs to travel home because her mother has suddenly become very sick. Jack more than willingly accompanies her back to her home and hometown. When Calls the Heart has plot that is based around steadfast characters but continues to move.

When they reach the city of Hamilton, Jack discovers that Elizabeth comes from a very wealthy family. Their home, lifestyle, and estate are in a very good condition. Jack spends his time trying to navigate his place in the family. However, Elizabeth's father does not think he is good enough. Jack does not come from the same class and society that Elizabeth does. Her father sees Jack as man unworthy of marrying his daughter. He spends a large amount of his time trying to separate the two. He sees a better fit for his daughter in the form of another man named Charles Kensington. Before meeting Jack, Elizabeth and Charles had been in a relationship. As Elizabeth's father drives Jack and Elizabeth apart, he tries to weld her with Charles instead. When Calls the Heart portrays some struggles that are very realistic in people's lives. Elizabeth's choices and journey are unique, but relatable. Her story is not only told, but shines through.
