by  Frances  Hodgson  Burnett 
(1849-1924) 

Mary  Lennox  is  a  spoiled,  middle-class,  self- 
centerd  child  who  has  been  recently 
orphaned.  She  is  accepted  into  the  quiet  and 
remote  country  house  of  an  uncle,  who  has 
almost  completely  withdrawn  into  himself 
after  the  death  of  his  wife.  Mary  gradually 
becomes  drawn  into  the  hidden  side  of  the 
house:  why  does  she  hear  the  crying  of  a 
unseen  child?  Why  is  there  an  overgrown, 
walled  garden,  its  door  long  locked?
