Inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West, the series tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher, a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coal mining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion. The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Set against the wild canvas of an early 20th century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.

The main character, is all over the place. One minute she is strong and capable, the next she is a damsel in distress. I find it rather awkward to watch. The male lead is good looking and thankfully is a little more solid. However; he being the hero is beyond obvious. I like everything else about it though.

I should point out that this has only just come to a channel I can watch it on and I am only 4 episodes in. I really hope this show gets better, especially since it was given a second.
