When Calls the Heart: Change of Heart continues the story that started with the first movie, The Dance and was followed up by Second Chances. Elizabeth and Jack are exploring their new relationship when Jack's request for orders, which he asked for months before when he was unhappy in Coal Valley, comes through. He must now leave to fulfill his new duties. Elizabeth must deal with his leaving all the while entertaining her younger sister, Julia, who arrives for a surprise visit.
Julia views the way of life in Coal Valley as simply fun and almost as if it's all just stories from a dime novel. She doesn't take the seriousness of life in the frontier town to heart and soon finds herself in trouble, dragging Elizabeth along with her.
Abigail, the owner of the new bakery in town and a friend to Elizabeth, finds herself at continued odds with the owner of the mine. A man who may not be all that innocent in the tragedy that caused a number of miners to lose their lives not that long before, including Abigail's own husband and son.
Once again I found myself drawn in to this story. Michael London, Jr. does a fantastic job with these films and I found this one as enjoyable as the first two. I look forward to seeing more of them and perhaps I should pick up the book series and read those as well. Janette Oke, the author of the books these movies are based on, is a wonderful author.
