Craven is in deep despair following the death of his beautiful wife. He travels widely and is rarely at home in Yorkshire. The house is an old, creepy and Gothic mansion. Mary begins a friendship with the maid Martha. Martha comes from a poor Yorkshire family of twelve children who are loved by a wonderful mother named Susan. Gradually we see how Mary is transformed from a sad child to a girl who becomes interested in a secret garden. The garden has been neglected for ten years. Craven's wife died giving book to their son Colin. Mary becomes friends with Dickon (one of Martha's brothers)a young lad who lives free and happy.Dickon has a crow named Soot, a fox named Captain and two squirrels named Nut and Shell. Dickon has also rescued a baby lamb. Dickon becomes Mary's friend. He and she work hard to make the dessicated secret garden come alive with beautiful flowers and greenery. A cheerful red robin guides them to the hidden entrance to the garden. They also revive the health of Colin Craven the ten year old son of Mr. Craven. Mary and Colin improve in their emotional, spiritaul and physical health. The novel eneds with Mr. Craven's joy at seeing his son a happy and healty young man. The novel is positive and optimistic in its belief in the restorative power of nature.

This book, written and published over 100 years ago, is still relevant to us today. Mary Lennox, orphaned by her parents' deaths in India, comes to live with her uncle's servants at the estate that he rarely spends time at because of his memories. He also suffered a loss in his life. He lost his loving wife, Mary's mother's sister, while she was giving birth to their son Colin ten years previous.
Mary develops a tenuous relationship with Martha, a household servant close to her age, a relationship that develops into a closer friendship over time. She also meets Martha's free-spirited brother, and of course, meets her own cousin, Colin, who is very sickly, thought to be a cripple by the servants.
Mary falls in love with the walled-up garden that was special to her aunt, a garden that has fallen into disrepair (though I'm sure there's a better word for a garden that has not been properly cared for for years). She starts to take care of it, with some help from the others, including her cousin once she convinces him to defy the servants and join them outside.
Over time, everyone grows, Mary tears down the walls that she built up around herself when she felt misunderstood, Colin grows stronger, the servants learn to treat the children as the people they deserve to be, and Colin's father grows to love both Colin and the garden once again. Finally, the reader grows, because the book is filled with gems of wisdom.
This is a wonderful book. My mother read it to me when I was too young to read it for myself, then I read it again a few years later when I could enjoy it for myself. I've read it several times in later life, and I'm getting read to read it again later this year as a retired adult.
