Description
Ever since its first publication in 1911, The Secret Garden has become one of the best loved children's books of all time. Burnett's novel tells the story of sullen and self-absorbed Mary Lennox, who, after the death of her parents in India, is sent to live with her reclusive uncle in his large and lonely house on the Yorkshire moors. In the dreary countryside, Mary discovers a walled garden, neglected and in ruins; and in a distant room in her uncle's house she finds a cousin she never knew existed -- Colin, an invalid, ignored by his father and expecting to die. Mary and Dickon, a Yorkshire boy and Pan figure, befriend Colin and set about restoring the garden, which opens a world of magic, reconciling the children to the world of life and offering a "natural, splendid happiness." This extraordinary novel, which has influenced such writers as T. S. Eliot and D. H. Lawrence, highlights the transforming effects of love, joy, and nature, and of mystical faith and positive thinking.
