Are you a fan of the When Calls The Heat series on Hallmark. Did you know what it based off of the books Jeannette Oke wrote? It may not be exactly the same but it based off it and I really do enjoy it.

I had not read her books I wanted to. I was able to do so with Where the Courage Calls. It about woman named Beth Thatcher. Her goal to being a teacher in a frontier town. Will she get her wish or will she be turned out.

She thrown into a mining community to teach the children. Will she make it will she not. The town see friendly and she try and help the town after a disaster. The book is really good. I am sorry it been a while since I read the book. I will want to read more of the author's book when I can get a chane.

Will she make friends in her new mining community? Will she find love? Beth seem to be tested and about her skills. Read to see how it ends up. ( )

I knew right away that I would like this book better than the movie that was made about Where Calls the Heart.


And it’s not at all a surprise.

Books are almost always better than movies – not to mention, the movie was actually the story Janette and her daughter have written here - when the storyline was supposed to be about Elizabeth and Wynn.

In the movie, Elizabeth’s niece – Beth was reading about her aunt’s story as she embarked on an adventure of her own. I don’t know if the movie was always meant to be a gateway into a series for Hallmark (if it was – I would have thought they’d cast the people they intended to stay through the series…) or not but that’s how it turned out.


I don’t know if Janette Oke ever envisioned her stories being made into movies but I can not imagine that she truly had that picture in her head when she wrote the wonderful stories that Hollywood has twisted into their very own versions.

Either way, this book is a masterful retelling of what was, in my humble opinion, a somewhat mediocre movie. Personally I don’t care for some of the things that were added into the movie and I am thrilled to see that Janette and her daughter did not put them into this new novel. But that’s not surprising either. Janette Oke is, and has always been, a superb writer. She writes each story so well, you feel as if you’re right there with the characters.

I can remember listening to my mother as she read the Love Comes Softly series to us as young children. Janette painted such a beautiful picture through her wonderfully vivid descriptions and the truly realistic plots. Each book was a treasure-trove of intrigue and adventure.

I think Janette Oke was the first writer who inspired my own stories. She made it all sound like a wonderful fairy tale while also making it feel like you were listening to a story about one of your own ancestors – passed down through the generations.

This story is no different. She hasn’t lost a bit of her touch and I’m thinking that it also bodes well that he daughter collaborated with her on this latest novel. The story is so much like her others, it feels less like a collaboration than a true meeting of the minds.

BRAVO Janette and Laurel!

I hope we see many more stories from the two of you!

Where Courage Calls by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan is the first book in the Return to the Canadian West series. Beth (Elizabeth) Thatcher has graduated from college and has been offered a teaching position in Coal Valley. Beth feels she is being called to teach there by God. Beth comes from a wealthy family in Toronto. Beth's older sister, Margret is married to John Bryce and has one son, J.W. Her younger sister, Julie is into shopping, flirting, and having fun.

Beth travels to Coal Valley by train. It is her first time traveling by train alone. Partway through the journey she is joined by Edward Montclair, a family friend. Edward's mother and Beth's mother both hope that Edward and Beth will marry. Edward escorts Beth to Coal Valley at the request of Mr. Thatcher. Beth is not fond of Edward. She has found him to be conceited, cocky, and a bully.

Thanks to Edward, Beth arrives in Coal Valley without clothing, toiletries, or her teaching supplies. Beth also finds out that she is going to be teaching in a pool hall (it used to be a saloon before prohibition). Beth sets out to teach her almost two dozen students with limited supplies in a smelly room.

There are many great characters in this book. Molly McFarland who runs the boarding house, the children, Phillip Davidson, traveling preacher, and Jack Thornton, a Mountie!

Beth will have to overcome many obstacles during her year in Coal Valley, but she will also get great rewards. Where Courage Calls has romance, mystery, and humor. It is a great story. Janette Oke is one of my favorite writers and I always look forward to her books. I give Where Courage Calls 5 out of 5 stars. Happy Reading! ( )
