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.

    Great book. Interesting and humorous this book deals with difficult health and neglect issues faced by children. The insight on how the two address and resolve their health and well being is an example of how anyone of any age can overcome the past and live a healthy happy life in the present. Magic is the belief that is positive thinking and truly knowing you can change what life has thrown your way and live a truly healthy meaningful life. Refreshing and interesting the concept applies to today’s world as it did in the last century in the English countryside.
  • A delightful read!

    This book was so much fun to read. Mary was so spoiled as a white child growing up in India, that when her parents died suddenly and she was sent back to England, she expected to continue having people bow to her will. Instead her new maid, Martha, made it clear she expected a ten year old to be able to take care of her basic needs, such as dressing herself. She was skinny, sallow, rude and haughty, but she soon realized that she felt a lot better when she was nice to other people. Unknown to her, there was another ten year old residing in the great big mansion. He was the master’s dying son and a holy terror. He threw a tantrum anytime he couldn’t get his way. She found him crying one night, while he was having one of his tantrums, and from that day, everything changes, for both of them. She shares many secrets with him, including the discovery of a secret garden on the grounds. The garden’s magic causes amazing changes in both of them. Sometimes, the language changes to a Yorkshire brogue, but while difficult to understand at first, it actually adds authenticity to the story. This is a MUST read!

    I don’t know when this book was originally written, but it certainly is a classic. It is so heartwarming. We can learn so much from the positive thoughts that were shown in this book. I really, really liked this book. Could barely put it down once I started reading it.

    This story is truly worthy of any maturity / coming of age saga. Indeed its two major protagonists both achieve thru dedication, analysis, and applied logic a discovery of the world so profound it ranks with any sobriety achievement from a derelict [as I once was] or an "Atlas Shrugged" enlightenment towards achieving clarity. You may find your own examples. Keep the Kleenex handy. xxx
