The Secret Garden

Frances Hodgson Burnett

Book Overview: 

Mary Lennox is a spoiled, middle-class, self-centered child who has been recently orphaned.

Mary gradually becomes drawn into the hidden side of the house: Why does she hear the crying of a unseen child? And Why is there an overgrown, walled garden, its door long locked?
