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.
Karen should read everything
As a Doctor Who and Secret Garden fan, I may be a bit biased but this is absolutely brilliant!
Five Stars for the narration
I wasn’t the biggest fan of the actual story itself but Karen Gillian does a fantastic job narrating the story. An enjoyable listen even if I prefer The Little Princess.
Karen Gillan captured the magic of this story perfectly. I have long loved it but I will go back to this version again and again! A treasured addition to my library!
