The Secret Garden is about a garden that has been locked up for ten years and is discovered by a young girl named Mary Lennox. Mary has come from India, orphaned, spoiled, sickly and determined that she will not like living with her uncle, Mr. Craven. When Mary discovered the garden she began caring for it with the aid of her new friend Dicken. The garden and Mary experience a great transformation.
While staying at her uncle’s, Mary uncovered another secret, her cousin, Colin. Colin believed he was incurable, bedridden and destined to die. His tantrums were so frightening that the servants performed every request made by him in order to keep him calm. Mary hoped that by taking Colin to the garden he would learn to love the garden and its magic would work wonders on him.
