As an older child I identified with Mary Lennox as I, too, had lost a parent. The book thoroughly engrossed me as I reread it many times and never tired of Mary's life and adventures at Misselthwaite Manor. It still engages me as an adult. A true classic. — Sarah Knight


THE SECRET GARDEN: - is written by American author Frances Hodgson Burnett and published in book form in 1911. This is novel for children and is a pastoral story of self-healing that became a classic of children's literature. This book is considered to be among Burnett's best work. The novel revolves on Mary Lennox, a selfish and disagreeable 10-year-old girl, who is living in India with her wealthy British family. Neglected by her parents, Mary is spoiled by her servants. Mary is orphaned when a cholera epidemic kills her parents and the servants.
After staying briefly with an English clergyman, she is sent to England to live with a widowed uncle, his huge Yorkshire estate, but he is rarely there. Consequently, she is brought to the estate by the head housekeeper who shuts her into a room and tells her not to explore the house. Later on, her interaction with nature transforms her and she becomes kinder and more considerate. The Secret Garden is a tale of transformation and feeling of extreme happiness in the presence of nature. The physical and spiritual healing that Mary experiences in the garden is mirrored in the nature's seasons.
