The Secret Garden is now one of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most popular novels, and considered a classic of English children’s literature. Several stage and film adaptations have been made : Mary Lennox is a troubled, sickly, and unloved 10-year-old girl born in India to selfish, wealthy British parents who never wanted her. She is primarily cared for by servants, who pacify her as much as possible to keep her out of her parents’ way. She grows into a spoiled and selfish girl. Eventually, there is a cholera epidemic in India which kills Mary’s parents and all the servants. Mary is discovered alive but alone in the empty house. She briefly lives with an English clergyman and his family and is then sent to Yorkshire, England, to live with Archibald Craven, an uncle she has never heard of let alone met, at his miserable, isolated mansion called Misselthwaite Manor. . .
