The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The first time I encountered this book was in fourth grade, I was reading an illustrated version and after a few pages I stopped and did not pick it back up. But as it has been quite a few years I decided to give it a second try, this time I was in love with it. The magic of the garden and childhood are created through the simple language and beautiful flowers. The story starts off with Mary, a spoiled brat, who after her parents die is sent to Yorkshire to live with her mysterious uncle. Mary never knew what it was to be a child until she came to her uncle’s manor. Once at the manor she is able to rediscover herself and the beauty of nature. As someone going to college next year, I found it refreshing to watch the rebirth of childhood and find that it is not just limited to children.
