Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'"The Bride of Lammermoor" was one of the first books that Laura read with absorbed interest. She adored the Master of Ravenswood, his dark haughty beauty, his flowing cloak and his sword, his ruined castle, set high on its crag by the sea, and his faithful servant Caleb and the amusing shifts he made to conceal his master's poverty. She read and re-read "The Bride"'.
