Janette Oke opens a whole new world up for the Christian -Historical Fiction reader in this book. Elizabeth Thatcher is like every dedicated teacher, only wanting the best for her students and a little adventure in her life along the way. Immediately arriving in Calgary Elizabeth meets her brother's handsome friend, Wynn Delaney and resolves he is very attractive but not worth the fuss over. She refused to marry in this year of teaching. But Wynn's resolutions of not marrying are even stronger causing Beth to fall for him even harder and trying even more to get him to change his mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars when calls the heart 20 Oct 2012
By berylp
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A most enthralling book about Beth who gave up a comfortable life to go out West and start a school for settlers children.
It is an insight into the difficulties that befell her ,and the romantic side of the story with a Mountie is interesting without detracting from her integration into a different but welcoming community.

This book is really good. It gives a glimpse into what life was like in Canada in the 1800s. The love story is a bit obvious, it has a good Christian message.

Just one of the best books. Every steps writer reveals brings reader in another beautiful world. Well, not so beautiful if you live it only when you read it.
