The orphaned Mary Lennox is sullen, ill tempered, and unloved when
she’s sent to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven. A man consumed by
grief over the death of his wife, Archibald has allowed his sprawling
estate on the moors to fall into grim disrepair. It’s when Mary begins
tending to her late aunt’s mysterious garden—locked up and neglected for
years—that she discovers its life-changing secrets and a flowering
rejuvenation of the human spirit.
Out of this dark, closed-off
world and a child’s innate curiosity about life and death comes one of
the most transformative coming-of-age novels ever written.
