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.

Good book, but boring too, takes forever getting to the point

I for one really really think it is a good book, but it did get a little boring, and took forever getting to the point. Other than that, it was pretty good.

The Secret Garden

This is a great uplifting story, that children and adults alike will find interesting and inspiring. The moral of the story is to have a positive attitude and life will be more rewarding and magic like.

Refreshingly innocent.

This was a refreshingly innocent read that told more than just a story. In it read life lessons about the power of the mind. I truly enjoyed this classic.
