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.

When orphaned Mary Lennox comes to live at her uncle's great house on the Yorkshire Moors, she finds it full of mysterious secrets.
The gardens surrounding the odd property are Mary's escape and she explores every inch of them—all except for the mysterious walled-in, locked garden.


I read both The Secret Garden and A Little Princess as a little girl and have read and re-read them throughout my life. Most of the prose is appropriate for an advanced child to read, but in the latter half of the book in several places, it seems as if the author has forgotten for whom it is written. All Soups are Suspect When trying to eat exclusively gluten-free, all soups become suspect.
Airport Eating - Gluten-Free Airports are notoriously difficult places to find gluten-free food. Mexican, but From Mexico Not so recently while traveling, I ended up in Tucson, Arizona.
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. There are nearly one hundred rooms, most of which are locked, and the house is filled with creepy old portraits and suits of armor. 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! Mary rarely sees her uncle, and perhaps most unsettling of all is that at night she hears the sound of someone crying down one of the long corridors.
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. 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.
