“Set in the 17th century bucolic bliss of the Exmoor countryside, Lorna’s idyll is violently disturbed by the stirrings of the English Civil War. We follow the course of her adventures through the eyes of John Ridd, a young yeoman who is out to win Lorna’s heart and avenge the murder of his father at the hands of the notorious Doone clan. In their first encounter, love blossoms: as she tends to him after an accident, John remarks that he has never ‘seen anything so beautiful as the large dark eyes intent upon me’.” Anna Savva, The Lady

“What an awesome tale. There are lots of ups and downs and surprises, along with the author's gorgeous prose describing the English countryside and farmlife . . . Highly highly recommended. If you enjoy Thomas Hardy, Charlotte Bronte or Dickens this will probably be right up your alley. ” Misfit

“I absolutely loved this book. It is historical fiction, romance novel, botanical guide, political satire, action/adventure and guide to farm management and animal husbandry all in one.” Glenn

“It is a book far above the standard of the ordinary novel — a book full of the truest nature and beautiful thoughts.” Margaret Oliphant,
