Excellent!

I had to write a review to compliment the narration and story telling by Nancy Peterson. She is exceptional and really brings the story to life. A transportive experience for those wanting something that is easy to listen to and warms the heart.

enjoyable

I enjoyed it, a bit much religion but it was for the time. The hallmark series is more modern and does this story justice.

Fun

Great story. Loved to feel the emotions of the first pioneers. They are strong people. Even though it is fiction it feels very real.

When Calls The Heart is better than the TV show

so endearing

It was refreshing to be able to find a book that is not filled will random, wonton sex, violence, and profanity! I cannot wait to listen to the least in the series!

sweet story

The narrator was amazing! As a teacher, I really liked this story. It did a good job of showing how teachers really do get attached to their students and really care for them. I would say half of the story was about her as a teacher in the Backwoods and the other half (I actually started to wonder if there was a love story until more towards the end) was a sweet love story between her and a mountie... just a good old fashioned love story.

Easy listen but eventually predictable

Fairly predictable love story, I was eventually waiting for it to end. But nice simple story line.

Love this series!

This is my fourth or fifth read/listen to this series (over the last 30ish years)! I just adore these books from Janette Oke and have done since my teens. This is a great introduction to Elizabeth and how she adapts to this new life!
