This unforgettable classic English children’s novel is the story of three young friends and one special garden.
After tragedy leaves Mary Lennox orphaned, the bratty ten-year-old British girl is sent from her home in India to Yorkshire where she is to live with Archibald Craven, a distant widower uncle whom she has never met. At first, life in the isolated Misselthwaite Manor is as cold and desolate as the bleak moor outside her window.
Then Mary hears the story of Mrs. Craven’s accidental death in her walled garden. The bereaved husband has locked the garden’s door and buried the key, forbidding anyone to enter.
The headstrong Mary’s curiosity is piqued, inspiring her to find a way into this secret garden. What follows transforms her life and the lives of all at Misselthwaite Manor.
A must read for children and the child in all of us.
