A beautiful and timeless portrayal of friendship, mystery, and renewal. Beloved by generations of young readers, this is the story of two unhappy but courageous children who become determined to make their lives, and the lives of others around them, more joyful.
Orphaned Mary Lennox is sent to live in her uncle's house on the Yorkshire moors, and the house is an unhappy one. And full of secrets. The mansion has nearly one hundred rooms, and her uncle keeps himself locked up. And at night, she hears the sound of crying down one of the long corridors.
The gardens surrounding the large property are Mary's only escape. Then, Mary discovers a secret garden, surrounded by walls and locked with a missing key. With the help of two unexpected companions, Mary discovers a way in―and becomes determined to bring the garden back to life.
