By R. D. Blackmore
First released in 1869, Lorna Doone is the tale of John Ridd, a farmer who reveals love amid the non secular and social turmoil of seventeenth-century England. he's only a boy while his father is slain by means of the Doones, a lawless extended family inhabiting wild Exmoor at the border of Somerset and Devon. Seized by way of interest and a feeling of experience, he makes his strategy to the valley of the Doones, the place he's came upon through the gorgeous Lorna. In time their infantile fantasies blossom into mature love—a bond that would motivate John to rescue his loved from the ravages of a stormy wintry weather, rekindling a clash together with his archrival, Carver Doone, that climaxes in heartrending violence. cherished for its portrait of star-crossed enthusiasts and its surpassing descriptions of the English geographical region, Lorna Doone is R. D. Blackmore’s enduring masterpiece.
