Overview

Mary Lennox is a troubled, sickly, and unloved 10-year-old girl born in India to selfish, wealthy British parents. When her parents die, she is sent to live with her uncle in Yorkshire, England. As Mary is exploring the periphery of her uncle's gardens, a robin draws her attention to an area of turned-over soil. Mary finds the key to a locked garden, and begins an adventure that will change her life forever. The growth in the garden and Mary is the book's central symbol. Using the garden motif, Burnett explores the healing power inherent in living things. In a very literal sense, Mary Lennox comes alive as her garden does. The Secret Garden is now Burnett's most popular novel, and is considered to be a classic of English children's literature. This cloth-bound book includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket, and is limited to 100 copies.

Author Information

Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 - 29 October 1924) was an English-American novelist and playwright. She is best known for the three children's novels Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911). She was born in Cheetham, England. After her father died in 1852, the family fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 immigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and in the 1890s bought a home there where she wrote The Secret Garden. She settled in Nassau County, Long Island, where she died in 1924.
