Summary

Sir William Ashton, a devious lawyer, has deprived Lord Ravenswood of his title, his estate and subsequently of his life by means of legal and financial trickery. Edgar, Ravenswood's only son, has inherited his father's desire for vengeance. When he meets his adversary by chance, however, he not only saves Ashton's life, but falls in love with his daughter Lucy. The couple wish to marry, but will the ancient prophecy of Ravenswood stand in their way? The Bride of Lammermoor brings to vivid life a historical incident from Scotland's turbulent past and does so with Scott's characteristic humour and wisdom.
