A romantic tale of love, honour, bravery and treachery set in the valleys of Exmoor during the times of James II and the Monmouth Rebellion.
The powerful Doone family are feared and hated throughout the county because of their savage, marauding ways. To John Ridd, whose father they killed, there is no virtue in any of them – but then he meets Lorna, a kind-hearted girl at odds with her evil family, and he determines to rescue her.
John Ridd’s flight with Lorna Doone is a compelling adventure story that has been widely enjoyed since its first publication in 1869. This edition has been abridged by Stephanie Nettell.
