About the book:

Beth Thatcher has spent her entire life in the safe, comfortable world of her family, her friends, and the social outings her father’s wealth provides. But Beth is about to leave it all behind to accept a teaching position in the rugged foothills of western Canada. Inspired by her aunt Elizabeth, who went west to teach school several years ago, and gently encouraged by her father, Beth resolves to put her trust in God and bravely face any challenge that comes her way.

But the conditions in Coal Valley are even worse than she’d feared. A recent mining accident has left the town grieving and at the mercy of the mining company. The children have had very little prior education, and many of the locals don’t even speak English. There isn’t even a proper schoolhouse. In addition, Beth’s heart is torn between two young men–both Mounties, one a lifelong friend and the other a kind, quiet man who comes to her aid more than once.

Despite the many challenges, Beth is determined to make a difference in the rustic frontier town. But when her sister visits from the East, reminding her of all the luxuries she’s had to give up, will Beth decide to return to her privileged life as soon as the school year is over?

My thoughts:

From one of the christian fiction author's that started my love for reading! 

My 9 yr old girls and I recently watched When Calls the Heart movie and tv series...imagine our enjoyment when we realized this book would be releasing soon!  This is one of those books that you can pull off the shelf and feel confident in what you'll be getting just because of the name that is associated with the title! 

Every young, old, new, and in between reader should check this novel out!  I give this book 5 stars!

**I received this book in exchange for my honest review**
