Publisher Description

For the first nine years of her life, Mary Lennox was a mean, spoiled, and sickly English girl growing up in India. But when tragedy strikes her family, she is sent off to live at her uncle Archibald's giant manor in Yorkshire. No longer surrounded by servants, Mary finds herself alone in a big and scary new world. That is, until she finds a garden that's been locked away for years...


Heavily influenced by the premature losses in author Frances Hodges Burnett's life, including both her father and her son, The Secret Garden is an unforgettable story about the healing power of nature. Addressing themes of pain, love, death, selflessness, and inner peace, this classic proves that children's literature can be just as complex and profound as adult literature.

The Secret Garden

This book shows that positivity can help in any situation and that no matter how spoiled you are, you can always find the kind person you are inside. This book has so many values that are obvious and so many more that you can only find out about when you think hard and pay attention to everything that Mary does. Frances Hodgson Burnett has written an amazing book. I would strongly recommend anyone to read The Secret Garden. 😊
