Did you feel cheated by the ending?

Did anyone else feel cheated by the ending? I thought it would have felt more natural if John ended up with Ruth instead but of course, then we wouldn't have had a happy ending (which are very important to me, although unnecessary). I guess it's because all throughout the novel, Lorna seemed to me a very wispy, ghostlike character, angelic, too-good-to-be-true like and one of those innocent, beautiful (perhaps dislikeably so) girls who one can never understand.

The Family Trees

Hello, I have to hold a lesson about Lorna Doone, A romance of Exmoore. Because this book has a lot of names of family members I thought it would be useful for my classmates to show them the family trees of the Doones and Ridd's family, but I wasn't able to find some. May you help me? PS: Sorry for my bad English, I'm from Switzerland :)
