R. D. (Richard Doddridge) Blackmore
Take a trip back in time to nineteenth-century Yorkshire in this emotionally engaging tale from British author R.D. Blackmore. Mary Anerley follows the life of the protagonist of the same name as she faces down the challenges of coming of age in an isolated rural environment.
If you were swept away by R. D. Blackmore's historical saga Lorna Doone, you can recapture the magic with his subsequent novel Springhaven. Instead of the bitter dispute between families that served as the backdrop for Lorna Doone, Springhaven unfolds amidst the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars.
Set in the Exmoor region among the moors and hills of southwest England, R. D. Blackmore's novel Slain by the Doones is an effortless and exciting amalgamation of action, adventure and romance, served up with a heavy dose of local culture and custom.
This romantic classic from British author R. D. Blackmore has something for everyone—a detailed historical account of the turbulent lives of English farmers in the seventeenth century, a gripping tale of star-crossed lovers, epic family feuds, struggles for power, and much more. Fans of works like Pride and Prejudice and The Grapes of Wrath will love Lorna Doone.
