Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's novel is about orphaned Mary Lennox, who is sent to live with her uncle at Misslethwaite Manor in Yorkshire. Initially a sour, bad-tempered child, Mary begins to bloom under the influence of nature when she discovers a long-abandoned garden on the grounds of her uncle's estate. Burnett's novel is brought to life by LibriVox volunteers who lend their voices to her characters.

This dramatic reading of The Secret Garden was a delightful experience, including the Yorkshire dialect (which, occasionally, was difficult to understand). I thoroughly enjoyed this classic tale!
