When Calls the Heart- Heart of Faith
From celebrated author Janette Oke (the Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy), Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) and Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210) star in “When Calls The Heart: The Heart of Faith,” a beautiful story originally broadcast as “The Heart of Christmas.” Christmas is coming to Hope Valley, and everyone’s in a festive mood. Rosemary and Lee have returned from their honeymoon to reside in their new row house next to Elizabeth, who’s busy helping her students mount a nativity play. A traveling peddler, Sam, is mistaken for Santa by the kids… and then mistaken for a thief by Jack! But Elizabeth is stunned when word arrives that the supply train has derailed. Without costumes for the play, food for the feast and presents for the kids, Christmas will be ruined! It takes a lot of faith, spirit, and the cooperation of friends and family to show Hope Valley what Christmas is all about!
“When Calls the Heart: Heart of Faith” is the inspiring first two episodes of the fourth season of this wonderful and warm-hearted series. It is big on story, big on characters, and big on heart! Sam the mysterious peddler shows up and seems to have the perfect gift for every occasion. When a freight train is derailed, which was carrying needed supplies and costumes for the children’s Christmas pageant, the town has to pull together to make a little Christmas magic themselves. This includes providing food, costumes, gifts, and a stove to keep a family warm. And one man makes sure the kids have a surprise visit from Santa himself.
The movie features romance between Jack and Elizabeth, and Abigail and Pastor Frank. And the characters’ values and their faith in God are nicely illustrated. We are more than happy to award this DVD our Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages. This one shoots for the heart and strikes it, but in a good way.
