Book review: When Calls the Heart (Canadian West #1) by Janette Oke

Nothing in her cultured East Coast upbringing prepared Elizabeth for a teaching position on the Canadian frontier. Yet, despite the constant hardships, she loves the children in her care. Determined to do the best job she can and fighting to survive the harsh land, Elizabeth is surprised to find her heart softening towards a certain member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Book 1 of the bestselling Canadian West series.

I was encouraged by the Hallmark Movie and then the series When calls the heart to pick up the books they were based on. After all most of the time the book is better then the movie right? I think in this case they are both very good. When calls the heart is a read that I really enjoyed. While I am not be of the same faith as Elizabeth and her lovely Mounty I can understand and respect the faith they have. When you embark on a new adventure no matter what you believe in you have to have some kind of faith to really believe you can do it. I plan on reading more in the series this book was full of enjoyable characters who you really feel like you can embrace yourself in. There is nothing quite as great when it comes to books as a cast of characters you feel you really know, characters you feel you could be sitting next to and eating with.
