When Calls The Heart spoilers indicate Elizabeth Thornton (Erin Krakow) is still dreaming of publishing her manuscript. Season 8 of the Hallmark frontier show begins soon and could see Elizabeth’s dream finally come true. Tune in Sunday night for the premiere of the next adventure.
When Calls The Heart: Elizabeth Thornton’s Journey
Schoolteacher Elizabeth Thornton moved to Hope Valley to be the town’s new teacher. She immediately learned that a mine explosion killed most of the men in town. The widows had little confidence in Elizabeth’s ability to teach their children, considering her wealthy and privileged background. The town’s teacher did herself no favors when she accidentally burns down her house on the Hallmark series When Calls The Heart.
A fateful journey began for Elizabeth Thornton when she met Canadian Mountie Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing). The town’s handsome protector took an initial dislike to Elizabeth because her rich father used his influence to have Jack assigned to the town to watch over her. Eventually, his attraction to her developed, and he courted her until he won her love.
Hope Valley’s town watched as the couple’s relationship evolved, culminating in their marriage. Jack took an assignment training other Mounties but was killed in a landslide while on duty. Widow Elizabeth Thornton soon realized she was pregnant and is thankful to have a precious reminder of her beloved.
Elizabeth Dreams of Being a Writer
Since coming to Hope Valley, Elizabeth Thornton renewed her love of writing and hopes to write a book. She works diligently on her manuscript and hopes to have it published. In Season 7, she discovers that the local When Calls The Heart saloon-keeper Lucas Bouchard (Chris McNally) has ties to the publishing world due to his mother being an editor.
Lucas offers to assist Elizabeth Thornton with her dream of becoming a published writer. Perhaps this is another way he attempts to win Elizabeth’s favor, aside from building a library. The town businessman and saloon owner is vying for her affections with his worldly ways, and confident manner on When Calls The Heart.
Prickly Helen Bouchard (Teryl Rothery) comes to town in the upcoming Season 8 of When Calls The Heart and quickly notices the chemistry between her son and the widowed schoolteacher. Helen and Elizabeth Thornton develop an odd friendship, and Ms. Bouchard helps her fine-tune her manuscript. She also puts Elizabeth in a tight spot, asking her to keep a secret from Lucas.
The Trio Splits on When Calls The Heart

Lucas Bouchard and another man in town, Mountie Nathan Grant (Kevin McGarry), have tried to win her affections.
