The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett tells the story of Mary Lennox, a sickly, unloved little girl who was raised in India. After she is orphaned, Mary moves to England to the home of her uncle, Archibald Craven, at Misselthwaite Manor. While there, Mary discovers a hidden garden that has been locked for years. With the help of some new friends, Mary begins to thrive as she cultivates the garden and watches it bloom. One night, Mary discovers a sick boy named Colin in a secret bedroom in the house, and the two children realize they are cousins. Mary begins to visit Colin often, and through their friendship and the beauty of the secret garden he begins to grow and thrive as well. The Secret Garden reveals that love, tenderness, and the beauty of nature have the power to heal.
