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 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.

In the garden there was nothing which was not quite like themselves - nothing which did not understand the wonderfulness of what was happening to them - the immense, tender, terrible, heart-breaking beauty and solemnity of Eggs.
As she came closer to him she noticed that there was a clean fresh scent of heather and grass and leaves about him, almost as if he were made of them. Much more surprising things can happen to anyone who, when a disagreeable or discouraged thought comes into his mind, just has the sense to remember in time and push it out by putting in an agreeable, determinedly courageous one. One of the strange things about living in the world is that it is only now and then one is quite sure one is going to live forever and ever and ever.

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.
She liked it very much and when she looked into his funny face with the red cheeks and round blue eyes she forgot that she had felt shy. One knows it sometimes when one gets up at the tender solemn dawn-time and goes out and stands out and throws one's head far back and looks up and up and watches the pale sky slowly changing and flushing and marvelous unknown things happening until the East almost makes one cry out and one's heart stands still at the strange unchanging majesty of the rising of the sun--which has been happening every morning for thousands and thousands and thousands of years. This exciting novel Secret Betrayal follows two lovers in a heart-stopping journey through a world torn apart by war. Years later, Carla is a woman of great wealth, the owner of one of the most wildly successful cabarets in Berlin, a city glittering with bright lights and lavish, carefree parties.
