It's rare to find television of this quality that also features themes and scenarios that the entire family can watch together. For those looking for such programming, When Calls the Heart is a gem. The show was off to a wonderful start in its first season. The premiere of season 2 looks to carry on their high standard of entertaining storytelling and compelling drama. This first episode includes motifs of personal choice, and dealing with the consequences of choices, as well as the struggle of love striving to overcome differences in family of origin. There's also strong nods to family and community in this story, plus the rewards of maintaining integrity and seeking justice. I'm so excited to see what the cast, crew, and creators of When Calls the Heart have in store for us with the remaining season 2 episodes.

Season 1 of When Calls The Heart was wonderfully family friendly television and sublime storytelling. Season 2 has started the same way. This series has it all: wit, warmth, faith, heart, romance and intrigue. There is nothing like it on television (Hallmark Channel USA Saturdays beginning April 25, 2015.) Purchase the season pass here so you watch it over and over from your living rooms or on-the-go. This will be the best $20 you spend on entertainment. Ever. Period. If you missed Season 1, get it as well. Binge Watch; I dare you not to fall in love and clamor for a Season 3 and Season 4...and Season 10.

The show captured my heart from the very beginning! My mother was at home with me and she was dying , but I didn't realize it, she had cancer and we didn't know. I started watching the show with my mother , and we watched it all the way through as far as we could go. And, it has been near and dear to me ever since. My great-grandmother came from a small town in Texas to Austin Texas in the early 1920's . She rode into town in a horse-drawn buggy with three Children & was a widow. She then went to work for the Driskill Hotel. She worked there for 23 years ,and raised her three children, and remarried when she was 40 years old. She had a marriage that lasted for over 40 years, my family is blessed to have been in the restaurant industry here in Austin, TX for many decades, and it took standing together and having each other's back to make it work. When Calls the Heart reminds me so much of my family, and having to stick together , and taking the time to show humor and love toward one another and among our hard work , we created and you never forget this kind of love.
