Great Series
5 stars By Tash86, Oct 26 2017
This is a great family movie-even my Dad looks forward to the next DVD release!! It's a series about a school teacher who takes a job out West. It isn't what she expected but she learns to survive

So so
3 stars By Miss RHV., Oct 05 2017
This is an episode at the beginning of a great series : BUT I would recommend NOT watching it because it has different characters to the rest of the series - it does paint a picture for what's to come but can confuse you as well. Other than that -- GREAT series !

Good start to the series
4 stars By Ausjenny, Apr 07 2015
Firstly if you have read the series you may be disappointed to start. This book got be back to reading when I first read it and I fell in love with both Canada and Mounties. This Movie actually starts with the next generation and the niece of the heroine of the original books. I still enjoyed the story and like that it is different. The movie sets up Elizabeth moving to Cool Valley to teach school and upcoming series. I really liked the flashbacks from her Aunts journal. Both have moved from the east to the west of Canada and both have to learn to live in less privileged way. Lovely story.

Comfortable viewing
4 stars By Julie, Dec 09 2014
This was a lovely film to watch, but don't come with expectations that the storyline will progress dramatically as there are a lot of flashbacks before the heroine actually takes the first step of leaving home.
It is essentially the story of self-discovery and following one's heart against family expectations. If you read the book first, as I did, you will find there are notable differences in the plot but this film can be enjoyed in its own right. Happy viewing!
