When Calls the Heart

From the Back Cover:

Elizabeth Thatcher is young, pretty, cultured, and educated. But when she journeys west to teach school in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, she's completely unprepared for the conditions she encounters. Still, she's determined to succeed at the formidable task of fitting in with the locals and shaping the hearts and minds of the schoolchildren in her care. 

She's just as determined not to give her heart to any of the local frontiersmen. Until she meets Wynn Delaney, a member the Royal Canadian Mounted Police...

I really enjoyed reading "When Calls the Heart". It is the first book in the Canadian West series. It is an enjoyable book and quite funny in places. 

I give this book 9 out of 10 R's


  1. Hi Rebekah, I don't know if I told you that there are 6 books in this series and they are at the library.

    1. I just recently got the last two books. :) Thanks for letting me know! :)

  2. I would like to read more by Janette Oke sometime. This book sounds good, Rebekah! Do you prefer the books or the show?

    1. I would like to read more books by her too!
      Oh, it is really good, you should read it sometime. :)
      I really like the books, although I've only read the first two, but the TV show is wonderful too. You should definitely watch it sometime. :) There is also a movie version of When Calls the Heart, but I like the TV series a lot better. ;)
