In 1910, Elizabeth Thatcher is a Canadian woman from an affluent family. Her father is a shipping magnate, but Elizabeth has chosen a career as a school teacher for herself. She eagerly waits for her first assignment, and is disappointed to learn that they are sending her to Coal Valley, Alberta. It is a tiny coal-mining town in the westernmost areas of the Canadian frontier, and life there is far more spartan than what Elizabeth is used to.

Thank you, Kielsa03! Your review cleared everything up for me.
I have not read the book and I was underwhelmed by the movie, especially by the way it just kind of fizzled out at the end. It made no sense--no one actually gets together, we're left wondering, etc. I was shaking my head "huh?" at the end.
I did not realize this was intended to launch a TV series. No wonder so much remained open ended.
I will say that Maggie Grace was very good in her role. Most of the other actors were adequate, except for the "free-spirited" sister, whose acting was atrocious. (Hey, just my opinion. YMMV. I liked her looks, as far as being the rascally sister, I just thought her acting choices were awful.)
The real star of this movie for me was Wardrobe. Such gorgeous dresses and hats! If I could just vote for the costuming, I would give it 10 stars!
