The Secret Garden

Newly orphaned Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle’s gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. She is lonely and lost, and has no one to play with – until she learns of a secret garden hidden somewhere in the grounds, where nobody is allowed to go. Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed, and is led by a gust of magic to a hidden door. Slowly she turns the key… and enters a world she could never have imagined. Now with a heartwarming introduction by Sophie Dahl, this spellbinding classic will take your breath away.
