Book Review: The Secret Garden by F.H. Burnett

secretgardenThe Secret Garden (1911) by F. H. Burnett is one of the sweetest, most touching little novels I have ever read. We meet young Mary, sullen and cross, a friendless and unfriendly little girl. She is loathe to be moving to a mysterious home in the English moors. But the fresh, open air of the countryside and a few new friends work wonders on little Mary. I enjoyed her transition into a joyful, pleasant, enthusiastic character. I adore this novel and Mary’s character arc!
