About the Author:

Richard Doddridge Blackmore (1825-1900) was for a while a schoolteacher and then became a fruit farmer. He wrote fourteen novels, but Lorna Doone, published in 1869 and set in the seventeenth century, is his only famous book. The characters of John Ridd and Tom Faggus are based on real people who lived at the time.

Review:

Historical romance by R.D. Blackmore, published in 1869. Set in the wilds of Exmoor (northern Devonshire, Eng.) during the late 17th century, the novel concerns the adventurous life of the yeoman John Ridd and his love for Lorna Doone, a beautiful maiden. Blackmore considered the novel a romance and studded it with the high adventure, dramatic set pieces, bloody villainy, and obstacles to love that characterize the genre. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
