General Description

After her parents die of cholera, ten-year-old Mary Lennox is sent to live with an uncle she has never met. A rude, spoiled, and sickly child, Mary initially hates her new home. However, the discovery of a secret garden proves to be just the distraction Mary needs to shake off her sourness, come alive again, and befriend a mysterious secret inhabitant of her uncle’s house. Together, Mary and her new friend learn about owning one’s past and cultivating a better future.
