a shimmering adventure of magic and adventure,
This review is from: The Secret Garden (Bantam Classic) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is a brilliant read for anyone old enough to feel heartwarming towards Mary and Dilan as they form bonds with nature to create a new life for the garden they find. The book starts with mary left alone and forgotten in the world, she cryes and sleeps until 3 dayes later she is accidently found and sent to live with her uncle. This starts her friendship with Martha (her chatty chambermaid) and so Dilan, Marthas' brother. When Mary finds the garden she recrutes the help of Marthas family to help her restore it. Together they are propelled into the livly and entertaining world of the secret garden and the magic it holds. An excellent read for any age and a story that stays for life like an old friend. 5 stars.
