When Calls the Heart (A Telling Silence) has two stories combined in one movie. The town of Coal Valley is still reeling from the mine explosion taking several men from the community and leaving devastated families. Elizabeth Thatcher is a young teacher who left her affluent life to be where she belongs by helping these families move ahead and look toward a bright future. She loves her students and is concerned for young Rosaleen who has not spoken since her father was killed. One day Rosaleen goes missing and Elizabeth is desperate to find her. She enlists Jack Thornton, the town constable and close friend to help her. In the midst of this little girl's disappearance, Jack discovers that one of the widows has some whale oil in her shed which looked to be the cause of the church fire that occurred three months prior. All of these events are swirling around with secrets being kept and Elizabeth and Jack sorting out their feelings for each other as well as for the friends that they are trying to protect.
It's another great family movie filled with mystery and hope for a small town. Elizabeth has a heart of gold and makes everyone in her path feel loved and respected. She is always ready to fight for her students and give up her comforts to sacrifice for those she has come to love in this small mining town rocked by tragedy. It's fun to watch her interaction with her students, the parents, the townspeople and of course, Jack Thornton.
