Kimberly Bjugstad writes the following about When Calls the Heart :
In the book "When Calls the Heart" by Janette Oke, Elizabeth had to face a decision of leaveing the life she loved or helping her brother, Johnathan, out west. This book makes you wonder what it would be like to live in the old west and how people had to survive. People should understand what kind of lifestyles are different from the old west and the ones te still have today. For Elizabeth living in the east was everything: you were proper and showed respect.Butout west life was different for her learning how to live a whole different life. She has to change her way of thinking and figure out on her own how to survive. The people who made her react the way she did are Wynn and Johnathan becaue of the special relationship they had. This book showed what it would be like to be on your own and to make a decision for yourself. Through Elizabeth's help to a little community she teaches in, she helped them understand how important education is to their childeren and how there community could grow together. For Elizabeth, life on the frontier was challenging, but fun. Books should be fun for everyone. When you pick up a book, you want to be able to enjoy and understand that book. Everyone should be able to understand life from olden daysto present days.
