Seized by curiosity and a sense of adventure he makes his way to the valley of the Doones where he is discovered by the beautiful Lorna.

Beloved for its portrait of star-crossed lovers and its surpassing descriptions of the English countryside Lorna Doone is R. D. Blackmore’s enduring masterpiece.
