Attention, Hearties! Come this Friday, Aug. 30, When Hope Calls will hit Hallmark Streaming, giving When Calls the Heart fans something to satisfy their appetite for wholesome family content.
“It’s very much in the same world,” WHC actress Jocelyn Hudon, who plays Grace, told Movieguide®. “We have a similar town. We have a Mountie. We have the same kind of values and traditions of When Calls the Heart, and a similar storyline.”
When Hope Calls stars Hudon and Morgan Kohan as sisters who run an orphanage. The girls lost their parents as young children. Kohan’s “Lillian” was adopted, while Hudon’s “Grace” was not. Now that the sisters have reconnected, they are learning the nuances of dealing with family history and expectations.
“It’s all about love and commitment, and everyone’s just trying to make the best out of it,” Kohan told Movieguide®.
Hearties first met Lillian and Grace in the When Calls the Heart 2018 Christmas special, when the sisters got stranded in Hope Valley with their orphans.
Now, When Hope Calls explores Grace and Lillian’s backstory.
