5.0 out of 5 starsHere is a list of the correct order of the disks / episodes
Verified purchase
I love this show and have been watching it since the beginning, but for the 3rd season in a row the DVDs have the 1 hr episodes combined into 2 hr movies and some have been renamed from their original titles.

On this set the first disk with the 2 hr holiday movie is listed as "It Begins With Heart" on the DVDs. It was titled "A New Year's Wish" originally.

This is the complete season, but the renaming and combining of episodes makes it confusing.

The disks aren't numbered again in this season, so here's a breakdown of the episodes in the order they aired.

Disk 1 : It Begins With Heart (2 hrs) (renamed from original title New Year's Wish)
Disk 2 : Troubled Hearts (2 hrs) (combination of episodes "Troubled Hearts" & "A Time to Speak")
Disk 3 : Heart of a Hero (2 hrs) (combination of episodes "Heart of a Hero" & "A Gentle Heart)
Disk 4 : Forever in My Heart (2 hrs) (combination of episodes "Forever in My Heart" & "Heartbreak")
Disk 5 : Hearts in Question (2 hrs) (combination of episodes "Hearts in Question" & "Prayers From the Heart")

Edit : 2 hrs and 1 hr in this review refers to the original run time when the episodes aired on TV with commercials included. On the DVDs without commercials they run about 20 minutes less per hour.

1.0 out of 5 starsA Canadian Mounties Fairy Tale
Verified purchase
This series is an adaptation of Jeannete Oakes' popular "Love Comes Softly" novels set in the Canadian outback during the late eighteen hundreds. I really wanted to like this Hallmark Channel production because of producer Michael Landon Jr's high ideals. His integrity and determination to create dramas that the entire family can watch together are unassailable; so is his faith as a born-again Christian. However, at the insistence of Hallmark brass, realism was turned on its head in favor visual effects. As a result, nothing about the series is realistic, nor does it have its foundation established in historical accuracy. It is instead a fanciful interpretation of books whose author has a wonderful ministry reaching people who might not otherwise be interested in faith-based novels. The majority of this series is purportedly set in a coal-mining town which has very few amenities, yet (looking ahead to Seasons 2-4) gorgeous gowns that weren't even in existence in that day and age grace some of the women folk. A supposed log-jam which backed up water in the river and then burst, completely wiping out a settlement below, was only a few logs high--not even enough to flood a football field. Magnificent Christmas decorations appear on buildings, railings, and porch supports that are actually found only in modern displays. Flowers in vases and corsages appear as if by magic, and the coal dust which pervaded every aspect of a real coal-mining town is for the most part strangely absent. So is any depiction of the grinding poverty and back-breaking work which was the lot of coal miners in that day and age. In order to enjoy this show, those who have any knowledge whatsoever of the real west as it was then, must completely suspend skepticism and a requirement for historical accuracy. The actors are great, and the setting is visually impressive (even stunning at times). But it is totally void of accuracy and realism. This could have been a great series, but it's not. Perhaps the majority of producers and filmmakers in America could profit greatly by taking a page from the book used by British filmmakers, who create some of the most historically accurate and engaging made-for-TV movies on the planet.

5.0 out of 5 starsLove this show ... So appreciate cast and crew for season 3!
Verified purchase
My 5-star rating is based on the premier of New Year’s Wish, comprised of episodes one and two of Season 3. I am that confident the whole season will be great! Season 1 of this show was definitely 5 stars for me, but I only gave Season 2 three stars because I did not enjoy the high society scenes or the change in the character of Elizabeth. Even though I will never be as fond of Season 2 episodes, I have a greater appreciation for those episodes now that I have seen the beginning of Season 3. Now we have the strong, confident Elizabeth back and her journal, which also adds depth to her character. The handling of the proposal cliffhanger was fabulous. I loved the cinematography of the ax cutting the wood in the first scene (symbolism for Elizabeth’s choice to pursue the life she chooses, not what her family chooses for her). The show once again focuses on real-life struggles, love and compassion for neighbors, the love of God for people, and the beauty of love and commitment in relationships.
Thank you to the cast and crew for this great show. Thank you for listening to your core fans and bringing happiness back to our TV viewing. Thank you also for engaging on social media with your fans and sharing BTS fun with us.

5.0 out of 5 starsFinally, a TRUE love story
Verified purchase
I love this series. It's nice to see some classy shows that have morals and good heroes and heroines in it. I love seeing courtship portrayed, instead of everyone jumping into bed together. Hollywood always falsely portrays that the over-sexed form of dating has been around all along. Courtship and true romance were the norm until the 60s. Love to see that they are sticking with the facts and true romance. Love the Mounty hero! Good looking and adorable. The mounty uniform and a horse never hurt anything either. Really love how they are not jumping on the ant-God and anti religion bandwagon and portraying it as most people see it. The things that I don't care for is Season 2 felt kinda a little out of place... Elizabeth's character changed and became more flirtatious than intellectual and it seemed more soap opera-like than it needed to be. Season 1 is the best and Season 3 is right behind it. I would like to see in the upcoming season, more of frontier life and hardships portrayed... and no more on again off again love between Elizabeth and Jack. ALso recapture Elizabeth's goofy and clumsy side a little more, like in Season 1. Love this season though. So glad to have something wholesome to watch! Sick of garbage on tv.

4.0 out of 5 starsWish it was more accurate as to weather, climate and history
Verified purchase
I have enjoyed this series. The quality of the scripts is declining, however. The first season was the strongest effort. In this last season every tiny bit of unhappiness or discomfort in any of the characters becomes a major issue that MUST be dealt with immediately. It becomes annoying. There is another point that bothers me. It is historically and climactically inaccurate. This is supposed to take place in Canada near the Rockies. In the shows that took place during the winter, from after Christmas to New Year's Day, the characters are wearing light coats, or no coats at all. They look as though it is summer. Historically, in 1910, grown women would wear their hair up, not loose. It would be loose at night after undressing and getting into their nightgowns. They they would braid their hair and put on a night cap. These women, supposedly in 1910, dress inappropriately for that period.

5.0 out of 5 starsWonderful Series!
Verified purchase
I loved this season, probably my favorite one so far. Let me first start by saying I read the books years ago and have been a huge fan of Janette Oke since my teens. When I heard the book was being made into a series I actually steered clear because I haven't seen too many tv series be true to books. That being said, I was laid up a few weeks ago and saw the series on Netflix and decided to try it. The chemistry between Daniel Lissing and Erin Kraków is amazing, and though it really is nothing like the book series, it does capture the spirit of the two main characters and creates a wonderful town and stories besides. I didn't enjoy season 2 that much, as I thought it spent way too much time in Hamilton and did not represent Elizabeth's character well after season 1, plus the overuse of love triangles starts getting annoying after awhile. So I debated on purchasing season 3 on Amazon and I and I glad I did! I have already watched it twice. It returns to the town and helps get Jack and Elizabeth back on the same page. One of my favorite scenes is in episode 3 when they take the children camping and talk about their future at the fire afterwards. I am eagerly awaiting season 4 and hope for an engagement and marriage. I would love to see them married and working on things together as they did in the books.

always a joy to watch over and over. These are real thoughtful scenes to bring before the people. It shows a way of life besides filth and the ugly dirt now being shown on films. Ii is so hard to find clean movies and these are perfect for my family.

Wonderful So nice to have the heartwarming feel of season 1 back although I loved season 2 and felt it was necessary to move the story along I didn't always have leave each episode with a smile on my face. The premiere movie of season 3 had me smiling the entire time. I can't wait for the rest of the season.
