I own a copy

What can I say? This has been one of my favorite stories since I first read it and wouldn't you know it, the first real girlfriend I had was named Lorna! It was a difficult read as a child and I'm still learning how to pronounce the colloquial old English. I carry a copy with me when I travel and I have a copy on my iPod. Now THAT's the way to learn the language. Once a year I take a long weekend and read it straight through, just taking naps when I need to. Can't give anything away with this review. It's just a romance. But it's a great romance.
