Book Synopsis

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.

  • A Beautiful Story

    By DawnKnam
    I read it so many years ago, watched the movie as well. We all know the movie never does a book justice. I had completely forgotten practically everything. I became so wrapped up in it, that I read it in 2 days. If only everything could end so lovely. I wish there was a 2nd book telling of what became of the children.

    Superior to most young people's books! Fantastic-fun adult read as well. (Readers remember this "cats have claws at the end of their paws. BUT a comma is a clause at the end of a pause.") Ha-Ha! Hope those who read + record this SecretGarden review enjoy my humor.

    By Great reader!!!
    This book has a sort of magic to it. When you read about how Colin and Mary and Dickon make the garden alive and how vividly Mary Hodgson describes the garden in the spring, you just want to be there with them. The book is truly extraordinary and I love it.
