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. 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.
With a bit of imagination, the words on the pages transported me to a hidden garden full of wonder and surprise. Raised in India by distant parents, she has relocated to England in the wake of their deaths and is staying in the cold, gloomy estate owned by her uncle.


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. There are nearly one hundred rooms, most of which are locked, and the house is filled with creepy old portraits and suits of armor. The household is run by a forbidding woman who doesn't like Mary, but she is attended to by a cheerful servant girl, whose nature-loving brother she soon befriends. But Mary is secretly intrigued by the stories about Misselthwaite Manor and its inhabitants.
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. 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).
It belonged to her aunt, who died in childbirth, which is why her uncle spends so little time at home. 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. And Dickon, a 12 year old boy with a pony who is Martha’s brother, who shows her to grow things.
