It’s Throwback Thursday! Today I recommend: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
Ten-year-old orphan Mary Lennox, sent from India to England to live in a lonely house on the Yorkshire moors with her unpleasant uncle, discovers an abandoned and unusual garden on the north country estate and invalid cousin.
First published in 1909, this is a charming tale about an orphan girl who while originally unpleasant due to being alone and abandoned slowly grows to realize that she does not have to be alone and tries to help both her cousin and the abandoned garden. This story has also been adapted in a movie released in 2009. Librarian Mrs. Rose recommends this book!
