When Calls the Heart Review
Nothing in her cultured East Coast upbringing prepared Elizabeth for a teaching position on the Canadian frontier. Yet, despite the constant hardships, she loves the children in her care. Determined to do the best job she can and fighting to survive the harsh land, Elizabeth is surprised to find her heart softening towards a certain member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Book One of the bestselling Canadian West series.
I read this book solely for the purpose of completing the challenge of reading a book set in Canada, and can I say how hard it was to find one that I was even a little bit interested in reading? Like authors please leave the US alone and maybe write a few YA books that take place in Canada.
Elizabeth was an aright character. I have to say I had some issues with her, (as a Canadian from the twenty-first century) but as someone who was painfully thinking about how she could teach those kids when there was things that they knew that she doesn't.
She tended to jump to conclusions. It was so annoying as so many of the conclusions she come up with were so wacked up that if she thought about it could have been not chosen.
