    I guess I never read this when I was young. After reading The Forgotten Garden, I decided it was time to address this big miss in my childhood reading. I can see how The Forgotten Garden was probably inspired by Secret Garden. Secret Garden is much less gothic than the newer book though. Secret Garden is the story of Mary Lennox, a young girl who has grown up in India. She had a sad, lonely childhood, and then a sickness strips her of everything she has ever known.

I can see how The Forgotten Garden was probably inspired by Secret Garden. Secret Garden is much less gothic than the newer book though. Secret Garden is the story of Mary Lennox, a young girl who has grown up in India. She had a sad, lonely childhood, and then a sickness strips her of everything she has ever known. She is sent to live with a widower uncle in his big lonely house. As Mary starts to reclaim her childhood, she also finds a garden to claim. The garden has been closed up for 10 years, and as Mary starts to tend the garden, she also slowly comes to life. Because this is a book for children, it is written from the child's point of view. We see a few things that happen among just the adults in the story, but for the most part, we experience Mary's awakening through her experiences. I can see how, if I had read the book as a child, I would have loved it. As an adult, I liked it, but I wish there were more. I was ready for the twist which never came, and I suppose that is how it should be. Sometimes it is good that there is just a nice story with a nice ending. The other shoe doesn't always need to drop. Although, it made the book almost suspenseful because I was waiting for it. I think I had gotten this story confused with another. The Secret Garden is worth a read, it is a nice book about how a little girl learned to be a little girl and help awaken a garden, and the people around her.
