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 Grden

I had seen this as a film and enjoyed it, but, the book was even better. You felt like you were there in the big old house when all of these things were taking place. Then you were transformed into the garden, that transpired the feeling of magic to the reader.

The Secret Garden

An exquisite book. I very rarely re read a chapter but did on many occasions. As comforting as homemade shepherds pie on a cold day. Will be in my list of re read books
