2022 | 168 min | Not Rated | English

From celebrated author Janette Oke (the Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Jack Wagner (Melrose Place), Pascale Hutton (Flashpoint), and Kevin McGarry (Heartland) star in When Calls The Heart, a beautiful story filled with “many of the values we all hold precious such as love, family, friendship, community, faith and caring about one another” (Military Press)!

In Like A Lion finds Elizabeth returning to her beloved Hope Valley after a month away and discovering that some surprising changes have occurred in her absence. From a mayoral race to exciting business ventures to old friends in new roles in the community, the one constant for Elizabeth is her budding romance with Lucas Bouchard. Then, in Turn Of The Page, the long-awaited arrival of Elizabeth’s novel should be cause for celebration — but hurt feelings and negative reviews threaten to put a damper on her accomplishment.
