Publisher's Summary

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.
Revised edition: Previously published as The Secret Garden, this edition of The Secret Garden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
