This sweet, little, leatherbound version (a steal at $2.00 from a used bookstore) was a delightful read! The tale of Lorna Doone takes place in England in the early 1600′s against the backdrop of Catholic-Protestant tensions. It’s the story of a young girl, Lorna, who lives with the outlaw Doone’s in their naturally fortified enclave. The son of a farmer has a Providential meeting with her and falls in love. But is there hope for love when she belongs to a band of fearsome outlaws? The book is full of adventure, wit, and romance. It would make a good read aloud for families with older children/teens.
