A Message from the Facebook Page Admins and The Webmaster

Welcome to the website for the Hearties, devoted fans of the Hallmark Channel original series When Calls The Heart inspired by the Canadian West book series from Janette Oke and directed by Michael Landon, Jr. and Brian Bird. An uplifting period drama set against the backdrop of a coal mining town in 1910, When Calls The Heart stars Erin Krakow (Elizabeth Thatcher), Daniel Lissing (Constable Jack Thornton), Lori Loughlin (Abigail Stanton), and a stellar supporting cast. Blending the elements of romance, adventure, and family values strangely absent from modern television programs, When Calls The Heart weaves a powerful story of hardship, faith, and love. Learn more about the series.

The term Hearties was coined by Janet Roark.  This website grew out of our passionate, active, and rapidly expanding Facebook fan base. We model our forum after the citizens of Coal Valley! That said, we know social media isn’t for everyone and we want to offer Hearties worldwide a place to connect and share their love of the show. We invite you to subscribe to our e-newsletter, check out photos and videos, read stories and posts from our Facebook page, participate in contests, add your pin to the Hearties map, answer polls, peruse treasured WCTH quotes and gems, leave comments, and more!

We hope you cherish When Calls The Heart as much as we do!

“I think the main theme of ‘When Calls the Heart’ is about community, love, and people working together. I think it’s also another example of people suffering a tragedy and coming together to form a different type of family, and friendships, and a lasting lifetime bond!”  –Lori Loughlin (Abigail Stanton)

That, my #Hearties friends, is the heart of both Coal Valley and our Hearties Facebook Group! Click here to JOIN!
