My first Christian novel I ever read was by Janette Oke. My foster mom introduced me to Christian fiction when I was 16. Her stories gave a me a peek into what I wanted my life to be like. I am not meaning pioneer life, but a life that is honest, pure, and a life that shows that God is #1.
About the series:
Elizabeth Thatcher leaves her upscale life in the east to pursue being a teacher in a coal mining town out west. Life out west is harder than she imagined, but the people she meets in Coal Valley compel her to stay and teach. One of the people she meets is Constable Jack- a Mountie. They have a complicated relationship during season one and I look forward to seeing where their relationship goes in season 2. I just love how Daniel Lissing brings to life my romanticized image of the Mountie that I grew up reading about in Janette Oke books. The TV series is a bit different than the books, but not enough that you don’t recognize the love between the characters and the hardships of living out west.
I got the chance to preview the season 2 premiere, but before I did that I had to watch season one. I do not have cable, but the show is available through streaming online. It took me about 2 episodes before I was really hooked on the show. I am a true #heartie now and after watching the season two premiere I am hungry for more.
I am not going to spoil anything about the season 2 premiere, but I do have to say that it is a rather emotional episode. Make sure you have you tissues handy! The only thing I didn’t like about the season 2 premiere is that it ended too soon. I need to know what happens next. [Read more…]
