Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

MISSELTHWAITE, "the sequel" to Frances Hodgson Burnett's THE SECRET GARDEN, traces the intertwining and complicated lives of Mary, Colin and Dickon into adulthood. Maureen O'Brien is a chameleon of character narration. She virtually transforms herself from Mary as a young, scandalous bride in India, to Colin pontificating about the pointlessness of war, to the tortured Dickon desperately trying to survive the horrors of battle. British class structure is distinguishable as O'Brien contrasts Dickon's working-class style of speaking with Mary and Colin's more elegant speech. Despite the scandals and sorrows, O'Brien emphasizes the strength of the golden threads that weave the three characters together, unbreakable, yet unique. B.J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

I was totally disappointed in this book, it rambled all over the place and read more like a trashy romance novel than a sequel to a classic... It was a total misreading of all the characters in my opinion.. It isn't even worth the one star I gave it.

If you grew up being read the secret garden, or read it yourself, then wondered, whatever happened to colin? mary? dickon? What became of them? One could go on and on. But after reading the sequal, I felt as if the ends had been tied. Wonderful novel.

The audiofile reviewer has got it wrong. Mary's MOTHER, Alice Lennox, was the young bride in India, not Mary.
