Episode 1: Lost & Found – Elizabeth Thatcher arrives and immediately has a set of problems to deal with, including a few mothers of the children who are not sure she is right for the job, the recent death of several coal miners, and a small house she is to live in that she accidentally burns down. She also meets a young Canadian Mountie named Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) and sparks fly but it is difficult to determine if they are sparks of love or from tempers flaring as they clash frequently.
Episode 2: Cease and Desist : – The women are told by the mine owner, Mr. Gowan, that they will have to vacate the small homes where their husbands dwelt until their husbands met their fate in the mines. The women unite and decide to work in the mines as the only way they can conceive of keeping their homes and a roof over their children’s heads. Elizabeth Thatcher begins to hatch up a plan for the women to keep their homes without being gone from their families, sucking in coal dust. The plan looks like it will succeed but Gowan is a step ahead of them. As they are running out of time, they will need a new plan and they will have to unite in their hope for a miracle to occur.
This is a terrific DVD with wholesome entertainment and yet it manages to create real tension and drama in the lives of the town people. This is well worth owning and watching!
