In a house full of sadness and secrets, can young, orphaned Mary find happiness?
Mary Lennox, a spoiled, ill-tempered, and unhealthy child, comes to live with her reclusive uncle in Misselthwaite Manor on England’s Yorkshire moors after the death of her parents. There she meets a hearty housekeeper and her spirited brother, a dour gardener, a cheerful robin, and her willful, hysterical, and sickly cousin, Master Colin, whose wails she hears echoing through the house at night.
With the help of the robin, Mary finds the door to a secret garden, neglected and hidden for years. When she decides to restore the garden in secret, the story becomes a charming journey into the places of the heart, where faith restores health, flowers refresh the spirit, and the magic of the garden, coming to life anew, brings health to Colin and happiness to Mary.

"I really enjoyed this book. The story was very unique and had a great theme as well as incredible details. The book is about two young children who are ungrateful, selfish, and unpleasant. The young girl moves in with her sick cousin. Both the young girl and young, sick boy have terrible attitudes towards themselves, eachother, and the people around them. throughout the story they learn to appreciate eachother and what they have. They discover that they need eachothers care to overcome their previous deprivition and become god kids. They encounter a secret garden and care for eacother through their same interest in it. One thing liked about this book was that authors unique wording and details. Another thing I liked was the idea that these children needed eachother and in the end helped one another to be happy. Over all this was great, it was really exciting to read."
