13 Reasons Why You Should Read When Calls the Heart
1) Wynn and Elizabeth
Their relationship progress very well towards the end of the book. (*SPOILER COMING UP*) I just wish that Elizabeth had found out the Lydia wasn't Wynn's wife a little earlier. Or that there was a bit more after the train scene.
2) The mounties
Need I say more?
Basically the same reason for the mounties. But, there's just something about WYNN that makes you - ugh, it's hard to explain. You kinda need to read the book to understand it. Wynn is just so strong, tall, . . . handsome . . . If I were to say one reason for reading this book, I would say: WYNN.
Now go read the book. Just kidding, finish reading this first.
4) It's really good historical fiction
Janette Oke just transports you back in time. And you can just picture everything in your mind! But more on this later . . .
5) Elizabeth's progress
At the beginning of the book, she's a city girl. But by the end, she can do A LOT more on her own. True, she hasn't got it all down, but there is noticeable progress
6) Else and Lars
They're just so cute! Else is just a dear, and Lars - Lars is just perfect.
7) It has religion very well integrated into it
Elizabeth prays a lot, and there's also a lesson about guilty consciences (*thinks about ankles and what I just said*) (*starts laughing*) IT'S AN INSIDE JOKE. YOU'LL GET IT ONCE YOU READ THE BOOK.
8) It's VERY well written
As I was saying before, Oke just transports you back into those times. You can see Wynn in his red serge jacket (*sighs dreamily*). Elizabeth almost burning down the schoolhouse (*chokes on laughter*) And how the residents of Pine Springs (I almost wrote Pine Valley, WRONG WCTH)
Sorta the same with Else, you just want to SQUEEZE her to death.
10) The Box Social Scene
Just to see what Elizabeth's thinking while Wynn is bidding for her box is priceless (this makes a lot more sense when you read the book)
11) The Bear Scene
BECAUSE IT'S WHERE THEY . . . I WON'T SPOIL IT FOR YOU AS MUCH AS IT KILLS ME
12) The Scene Where Elizabeth Leaves
I CAN'T SAY WHY EITHER (I'm just going to spoil a small part, she doesn't actually leave BUT I WON'T SAY WHY!!!)
13) Elizabeth's fight with the mice
It's just funny watching her try and get rid of the mice XD
