Preview of Lorna Doone Summary:

One of the great works of its kind, Lorna Doone is a romance that compellingly presents a strong, courageous hero and a pure, languishing heroine.

Blackmore evokes the landscape of Exmoor with descriptions of natural beauty that rank among the finest in nineteenth-century English literature.

His eye is almost as good as William Wordsworth's, and he misses few significant details of plant and animal life in the region. Blackmore also renders effective adventure scenes as John Ridd confronts the outlawed Doone family and fights its most powerful member, Carver. Blackmore's writing provides pleasure for readers seeking thrills as well as for those who enjoy moving descriptions of nature.
