'The Secret Garden' tells the tale of ten year old Mary Lennox, a mean-tempered little girl, ignored by her parents, who is made an orphan in a cholera epidemic in India and sent to Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire to live with an uncle she has never met. From this unpromising start Mary slowly blossoms. She hears of a secret garden, left untended for ten years since the death her uncle's beloved wife. Guided by a cheeky robin, Mary finds the garden's lost key and, with the help of Dickon, a local boy with an uncanny understanding of nature, sets about restoring the site to its original glory. The garden is transformed and, with it, Mary herself. No longer self-absorbed, she shares her excitement with her bed-bound cousin, Colin, who is as emotionally stunted as she was, and the magic of the secret garden transforms him too, both in body and soul. 'The Secret Garden' is a touching and uplifting tale of the joy to be found in friendship and in the connection with the rhythms of Nature.
