This work is an historical novel of high adventure set in the south west of England during the turbulent time of Monmouth's rebellion in 1685. Told through the life of young farmer, John Ridd, it is a moving love story of a man determined to right wrongs and win the heart and hand of Lorna Doone.
What an awesome tale. Written in the 19th century, but telling a tale about the late 1600's during the times of Charles II and James II. Our hero, John Ridd is a simple, albeit wise and honorable farmer who as a young lad meets Lorna Doone of the dreaded, evil outlaw family of higher born Doones, and it's love at first sight.
There are lots of ups and downs and surprises, along with the author's gorgeous prose describing the english countryside and farmlife. You have to pay attention though, as none of the characters are wasted. What might seem as inconsequential events and characters earlier in the story are brought back in full circle to the tale, along with a great mystery about Lorna's past as the author slowly peels out the many layers of his story.
Highly highly recommended. ~ Misfit (amazon Customer review)
