Good Movie
4 stars By Candid, Sep 03 2018
4.5 Stars

This movie is well made and has believable characters. 

This movie follows two generations of women named Elizabeth Thatcher who are very similar in their life's aspirations and dreams. As the Jr Elizabeth Thatcher uncovers her Aunts diary, her resolve to follow her dreams against the worries of her family grow stronger.

However, as she sets out on her journey, is she going to be able to handle leaving her privileged life as the daughter of a wealthy family, for a life as a pioneering teacher as her Aunt did? 

I enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to watch.

Entertaining and Ispirarational
5 stars By Olivia, Apr 03 2018
Once you start watching these series you want to watch the next one! Great to watch with the family, Michael Landon Jr does a fine job producing this series. Elizabeth Thatcher wants to be a teacher however to get to her destination she has some hiccups and it's funny to watch how she settles into a small town. Highly recommend

LOVE IT!
5 stars By Bree, Feb 11 2018
I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to watch a show as a family that is appropriate for all that's still entertaining. This movie is so lovely (the dresses!) and has funny bits, too. Do yourself a favour and buy it. Put the kettle on, grab a blanket and snuggle in.
