The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a classic children’s tale that I think adults can enjoy too. The Secret Garden is a tale of Mary Lennox, an orphaned girl around the age of ten, who is sent to live at Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire, England with her uncle Mr. I knew this story inside and out because I had seen the movie several times before I knew that it was based on the book written by Burnett. Although, this story by the description can sound rather morbid, with Mary being sickly and orphaned when she arrives, her uncle being an unhappy widowed hunchback and Colin being doomed to a sad, unhealthy and short life, it is actually a story of hope. Since I studied psychology, I know that in the past, people with mental health disorders were locked up (usually chained) in the cold, dark basements of asylums. I think that it is a great story for children and it also makes me want to spend more time outside and for anyone who is interested in flowers or gardening, I’m sure it would get you itching to get gardening. I could reread The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe one hundred times and never fail to notice something new. I LIKED THIS NOVEL THE SECRET GARDEN AS IT CREATES LIVELINESS AND ENCOURAGES TO DO SOMETHING .
I love the book so far!I am reading the book for book club and my hole group likes it.You have inspired me to do more,with writing. Nicole BasarabaNicole Basaraba is a Canadian writer focusing on topics of travel, culture, literature and publishing, and communications. Her father who held an important position in the English Government in India, has no time to look at her or talk to her. We read The Secret Garden, written by Frances Hodgson Brunnett and illustrated by Inga Moore.
This is a story of re-awakening of spirits, of growing to love and live and finding happiness in most unusual places and people. I can say that there are a few discrepancies in the story between the movie and the book, but it stayed mostly true to Burnett’s world.


Once the patients were given access to the grounds and fresh air, they began to improve with this adjustment to their lifestyle alone. Craven’s journey to health and happiness and this growth is paralleled in the awakening and fostering of the secret garden. I enjoyed reading the book so much that I want to read it again just so I can stay in the Secret Garden longer. When she finds herself being shipped off to an uncle who is hunch-backed and lives in an old desolate place, Mary simply looks disinterested.
And later in the story she meets Colin, her cousin, who like herself needs some of the special magic that makes Mary a little less contrary. Known as Mistress Mary Quite Contrary when she arrives in England, Mary soon finds an appreciation for the moorland and gardens.
The symbolism is simple, but is weaved in so well that the reader can enjoy watching the simultaneous growths. However, this story focuses heavily on description and most of the time, it is a pleasure to read. I enjoy many children’s stories,too many to name here, but some of my faves are by EB White, Roald Dahl, JK Rowling, Eve Bunting, and CS Lewis. I think that children’s classics might be on the horizon for this book club for a few more months because there are so many good ones to read! But Mary is secretly intrigued by the stories about Misselthwaite Manor and its inhabitants.
Dickon, the brother of Martha who is one of the manor’s servants, being savvy with nature, helps her grow the garden. There are times though that you may find yourself reading over some paragraphs that seem very similar to previous descriptions of the nature. Thin faced and with a thin body, with thin hair and a sour expression on her face, Mary Lennox never smiles.


The aayah’s were strictly told to keep the child away from the parents if they were to keep the parents pleased. I will leave you to fall in love with this story because one can make such promises of stories like these!
We also heard the audio book, narrated by the most talented Finola Hughes (Best known for her award worthy work in TV series General Hospital). Why not write your own?Excellent first 'grown up' reading bookMy daughter Polly (age 6) absolutely loved reading this book, she read it aloud from beginning to end and could not put it down. After she spends some time outside in the fresh air, running, listening to birds and animals, and looking at the nature, she beings to grow stronger and healthier. Governess’ were provided to teach, but none of them stayed long enough as they grew to dislike the child very much! Martha, the housemaid, who tells her stories about her mother and brothers and sisters all living in a small cottage at the edge of the moor. Her outstanding narration of the story alternating between British English and Yorkshire English is charming and adeptly executed. I will now be buying further books from this series as they will certainly encourage my child to read at home. And Dickon, a 12 year old boy with a pony who is Martha’s brother, who shows her to grow things. She felt an enormous sense of achievement on finishing the book, and can't wait to read some more!
