WHEN CALLS THE HEART: THE HEART OF HOMECOMING REVIEWED
“When Calls The Heart: The Heart of Homecoming” finally gets a Christmas special. So, what can we expect from the show for people who find Outlander to be too edgy? Well, it’s a cross-time love of fellow lovers and well-wishers who erect Wishing Trees and other bits of loveliness. Everyone acts like it’s a live-action Disney movie from the early 1970s, but it doesn’t matter. This is goofball charm designed to keep your grandparents happy. Also, while these specials are new…why do they always look like they were shot a decade ago? That always bugs me.

The Plot Thus Far
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, a beautiful story filled with "many of the values we all hold precious such as love, family, friendship, community, faith and caring about one another", (Military Press)!
The citizens of Hope Valley find the true meaning of the holiday season with a Wishing Tree that helps everyone’s dreams come true. As Abigail, Bill, and the rest of Hope Valley work together to create a special Christmas parade to warm the town’s collective hearts and bring everyone closer together, Elizabeth longs only for the return of her beloved Jack.
