Mary Lennox, a spoiled and disagreeable child, is orphaned in India and sent to live with her uncle Archibald Craven in Yorkshire. Still mourning the loss of his wife, Mr. Craven is away often and wants nothing to do with his niece, leaving Mary free to roam about the estate and spend time with Martha, her maidservant, and Ben Weatherstaff, the gardener. When Martha tells her the tragic tale of Mrs. Craven and the cherished rose garden that Mr. Craven locked up after her death, Mary decides to find the key to the “secret garden.” The other great mystery of Misselthwaite Manor is the strange crying sound the servants pretend not to hear—precocious Mary vows to discover the truth behind that, as well.
A timeless story of friendship, loss, and renewal, The Secret Garden is a masterpiece of children’s literature.
