Have you ever loved a book SO much that you could read it over and over again and never get tired of it? Seriously? I am not joking? Because I know that that has happened to me. When Calls the Heart is my favorite book ever. That is why I reread this book to fulfill Reading Resolution #38 (Reread your favorite book). When by It Starts with a Book and I were creating this list, we both thought that rereading your favorite book would be a fun idea. At the beginning of the year, I wasn’t sure what book I would use for this resolution. Then, after watching an episode from the Hallmark TV show, When Calls the Heart, I picked up this book and started reading it for the who-knows-what time.
When I first read this book, I couldn’t put it down. In less than a few days, I finished the entire When Calls the Heart Saga. I fell in love with Wynn and Elizabeth. Janette did an amazing job writing their story. I love, love, love (if you couldn’t tell) the whole saga.
Throughout the years, there have been many different covers of this book. So, I am rating just the cover above. That is the cover of the book that is on my bookshelf. I am giving this cover 4 stars. It may seem like an old-fashioned cover, but that is why I love it! If you get the whole saga in the old covers, you will see how the art keeps getting better and better, clearer and clearer. It gets more “real”.
If you already couldn’t tell, I am giving this book 5 stars. If I could, I would give it 10. But, I haven’t to follow my rating system. So, a shout out to everyone who loves a good read: When Calls the Heart is definitely worth it!
P.S. The TV show, When Calls the Heart, is also really great! I love it!
