3 Finding the secret garden. When Mary woke up two days later, the wind and rain had all disappeared, and the sky was a beautiful blue. Spring’ll be here soon, said Martha happily. You know, the secret garden. Are the flowers dead there? She really wanted to know the answer. Colin forgot about his painful back and sat up in bed, Get out of the room at once! he shouted, and threw a book at her. Im going, Mary shouted in reply, and I won’t come back! The door banged shut behind her.

This book, The Secret Garden is a kind of book that I would not even consider reading. It is neither a 501 nor a 1001 book. As a child, I read this book at least four or five times, along with Frances Hodgson Burnett's other childhood stories about Sarah Crewe (Little Princess) and Cedric (Lord Fauntleroy). They represented a rite of passage for me as a person and as a reader.
The Secret Garden (1909) is one of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most popular novels. The book tells the story of Mary Lennox, a spoiled, contrary, solitary child raised in India but sent to live in her uncle’s manor in Yorkshire after her parents' death. She is left to herself by her uncle, Mr. Craven, who travels often to escape the memory of his deceased wife. The only person who has time for Mary is her chambermaid, Martha.

Thank you and enjoy! The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a classic children’s tale that I think adults can enjoy too. As part of my Books We Should Have Read book club, this was the March read and it was a good choice since reading about gardens and growing things keeps me hopeful that Spring will eventually come. 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. I can say that there are a few discrepancies in the story between the movie and the book, but it stayed mostly true to Burnett’s world. 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.
