Publisher Description

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s charming childhood adventure story is read by Avengers actress Karen Gillan.

The Secret Garden is the story of Mary Lennox, a spoiled rich girl who is suddenly orphaned—and sent to live in her uncle’s remote Yorkshire estate. This arrangement does not sit well with Mary…until the day she stumbles upon a locked door that leads into an abandoned garden. Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most famous book is an adventure story about a little girl finding and creating her own happiness in a place that at first feels unfamiliar and even scary.

The talented Scottish actress Karen Gillan—who has appeared on-screen in the Avengers movies and on TV’s Doctor Who—narrates this Apple Books exclusive version of Burnett’s much-loved childhood classic, a magical world you won’t want to leave.

I wanted an audio book for my mother with dementia, this was perfect. The descriptions of the garden, the robin and the wonderful narrator brought the story to life for her. I enjoyed it immensely too but to see her face light up while listening made this book absolutely perfect. I will remember her listening to this forever. Thank you .

A long car trip with the story

I was in my car and going for a long drive and tried to find a good audio book and I stumbled upon this one I wasn’t expecting much but then I found out that is is exactly what I was looking for if you are in a long trip then read this book

that bloody energy ,

Extremely grateful

It’s not the sort of book I’d choose to read, and passed it several times when I still had leisure to visit a bookstore, but as soon as I started it I was grateful, because books never have expiration date, it hits you anytime when you least expect it, it truly was magic, magic turns a yellow faced, grumpy girl to a agreeable one, and a same spoiled, sick boy to a healthy wishful creature, and just a little, it healed me.
And Thanks millions times for the narrator.
