What secrets lie behind the doors at Misselthwaite Manor? Mary recently arrived at her uncle’s estate, she was orphaned, spoiled, sickly, and certain that she wouldn’t enjoy living there.
Then she discovers the arched doorway into an overgrown garden, shut up since the death of her aunt ten years earlier. Mary soon begins transforming it into a thing of beauty–unaware that she is changing too. But the garden hides another secret that she discovers one night. High in a dark room, away from the rest of the house, lies her young cousin, Colin. He believes he is an incurable invalid, destined to die young. Mary believes that if she can get Colin to love the secret garden as much as she does, its magic will work wonders on him.
