The Secret Garden

Hodgson Burnett, Frances

After Mary Lennox’s parents pass away, she is sent to a large, isolated house in Yorkshire to live with an uncle she has never met.

Ill-tempered, obstinate Mary dislikes her new home, but when she finds the key to a locked garden she realises there are fascinating secrets waiting to be uncovered at Misselthwaite Manor. With the help of new friends, Mary resolves to bring the neglected garden back to life – and her own transformation begins.

This perennially powerful, uplifting classic is regarded as one of the best children’s books of the twentieth century.
