Synopsis
A Timeless Children’s Classic

The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is one of the great classics of children’s literature, although now much more admired than when it was first published in 1910 as it is now. One of the central themes of the novel, that good health comes from healthy food, physical exercise, and a positive attitude towards life, is increasingly obvious to many of us, and has now, or is being, being confirmed by medical research. ‘Organic’ foods, ‘free-range’ chickens, and growing concern for our physical and community environments are becoming common wisdom now, and many diseases – as seemingly unrelated as childhood myopia and rickets (both associated with lack of time spent in the open air and sun) – have been found to be more closely-related to how gracefully we live than to "germs." What we do is sometimes as important as what happens to us, and ‘being brave’ in the face of adversity sometimes turns out to be a life-saver, just as it does in the book.

This edition includes the original four color plates and a color reproduction of the 1911 hardcover edition and is fully-linked to make navigation easy. Select any chapter title to link to the table of contents, which is functional, unlike many inexpensive e-books one sees. Although today’s Kindle doesn’t display color, many Kindle apps on other devices do, and who knows what the future holds for the Kindle itself?
Amazon.com Review
Mistress Mary is quite contrary until she helps her garden grow. Along the way, she manages to cure her sickly cousin Colin, who is every bit as imperious as she. These two are sullen little peas in a pod, closed up in a gloomy old manor on the Yorkshire moors of England, until a locked-up garden captures their imaginations and puts the blush of a wild rose in their cheeks; "It was the sweetest, most mysterious-looking place any one could imagine. The high walls which shut it in were covered with the leafless stems of roses which were so thick, that they matted together.... 'No wonder it is still,' Mary whispered. 'I am the first person who has spoken here for ten years.'" As new life sprouts from the earth, Mary and Colin's sour natures begin to sweeten. For anyone who has ever felt afraid to live and love, The Secret Garden's portrayal of reawakening spirits will thrill and rejuvenate. Frances Hodgson Burnett creates characters so strong and distinct, young readers continue to identify with them even 85 years after they were conceived. (Ages 9 to 12)
