man, is broad yorkshire hard to read aloud and translate as you go. whew, that was tough.

really, though, the whole book was tough. of course i love the theme of nature being healing and making a person the best version of themself, as well as the power of friendship to do the same. but other than that, this is a strange story of (racism, when mary and even martha talk about india) parents and guardians neglecting children. colin isn't valued at all by his father until he is shown to be not sickly, but healthy. i know this is a much different time but that still colors my reading of this. (something else from a different time is the excusing of domestic violence if she "deserved" it.)

overall this was fine but overlong and a little tedious.

still, this line is great as i've been grouchy lately:

"...she had only felt tired and cross, because she disliked people and things so much." ( )

A magical tale about the power of positive thinking, friendship and Nature's beauty.

When Mary is brought to live with her mysterious uncle, she discovers a secret garden which changes not only her, but many others. I loved the premise of this book but there were aspects that maybe haven’t aged as well as I’d hoped. ( )

Simply put: I loved this book! It is so charming, and sweet, and harkens back to a simpler time. It’s part fairy tale, part adventure, part children’s story – Okay, so all of those things are sort of related, but you get my point. This is a story I could imagine being made into a movie ala The Princess Bride where Grandpa is reading it to Grandchild and they both get swept away. Now that I mention it (and while I haven’t looked for movies based on the book) I can venture a guess that it’s probably already been done!

A children’s classic, originally written in 1911, and one that I can’t believe I haven’t read before now! I got this as part of a Coffee and a Classic subscription box, but I later found you can buy this edition from Barnes and Noble for just $10. Hard to believe, since the cover of the book is bonded leather, the page edges are colored gold, and it has a lovely, built-in, satin ribbon bookmark, and is illustrated with eight full-color plates by artist Charles Robinson (although, truth be told, while the included art is a fabulous touch, I wasn’t real taken with the visual interpretation of main character, Mary). Even if I hadn’t loved the book, the craftmanship of this gem is so nice that it would be a beautiful addition to anyone’s home library.

For those of you readers who, like me, had not read this story before, it is about a young girl of around ten years old, Mary, who has been raised in India by a diplomatic father and an uninterested mother. When most of the family dies in an outbreak of cholera, Mary is sent to live with an uncle in England, her mother’s brother, whom Mary has never met. Mary, who has only ever really known the hired help from her household in India, struggles to find a place at her new home. Her uncle takes little interest in her, plus she is a rather unhealthy and unpleasant child. Then Mary finds the secret garden, and a whole new world opens up for her, along with the help of a new friend or two she meets along the way.

Completely magical, and uplifting, it is a story of personal growth and how no one is “stuck” being who they’ve always been, but with the right spirit and strong determination, so much is possible. I highly recommend this book and hope it charms you the way it has me.

When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle, everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen.
Informatie afkomstig uit de Engelse Algemene Kennis. Bewerk om naar jouw taal over te brengen.
The seeds Dickon and Mary had planted grew as if fairies had tended them. Satiny poppies of all tints danced in the breeze by the score, gaily defying flowers which had lived in the garden for years and which it might be confessed seemed rather to wonder how such new people had got there. And the roses—the roses! Rising out of the grass, tangled round the sundial, wreathing the tree trunks, and hanging from their branches, climbing up the walls and spreading over them with long garlands falling in cascades—they came alive day by day, hour by hour. Fair, fresh leaves and buds— and buds—tiny at first, but swelling and working Magic until they burst and uncurled into cups of scent delicately spilling themselves over their brims and filling the garden air.
And over walls and earth and trees and swinging sprays and tendrils the fair green veil of tender little leaves had crept, and in the grass under the trees and the gray urns in the alcoves and here and there everywhere were touches or splashes of gold and purple and white and the trees were showing pink and snow above his head and there were fluttering of wings and faint sweet pipes and humming and scents and scents. And the sun fell warm upon his face like a hand with a lovely touch. And in wonder Mary and Dickon stood and stared at him.
They always called it Magic and indeed it seemed like it in the months that followed--the wonderful months--the radiant months--the amazing ones. Oh! the things which happened in that garden! If you have never had a garden you cannot understand, and if you have had a garden you will know that it would take a whole book to describe all that came to pass there. At first it seemed that green things would never cease pushing their way through the earth, in the grass, in the beds, even in the crevices of the walls. Then the green things began to show buds and the buds began to unfurl and show color, every shade of blue, every shade of purple, every tint and hue of crimson. In its happy days flowers had been tucked away into every inch and hole and corner. Ben Weatherstaff had seen it done and had himself scraped out mortar from between the bricks of the wall and made pockets of earth for lovely clinging things to grow on. Iris and white lilies rose out of the grass in sheaves, and the green alcoves filled themselves with amazing armies of the blue and white flower lances of tall delphiniums or columbines or campanulas. "She was main fond o' them--she was", Ben Weatherstaff said.
It was the sweetest, most mysterious-looking place any one could imagine. The high walls which shut it in were covered with the leafless stems of climbing roses which were so thick that they were matted together. Mary Lennox knew they were roses because she had seen a great many roses in India. All the ground was covered with grass of a wintry brown and out of it grew clumps of bushes which were surely rosebushes if they were alive. There were numbers of standard roses which had so spread their branches that they were like little trees. There were other trees in the garden, and one of the things which made the place look strangest and loveliest was that climbing roses had run all over them and swung down long tendrils which made light swaying curtains, and here and there they had caught at each other or at a far-reaching branch and had crept from one tree to another and made lovely bridges of themselves. There were neither leaves nor roses on them now and Mary did not know whether they were dead or alive, but their thin gray or brown branches and sprays looked like a sort of hazy mantle spreading over everything, walls, and trees, and even brown grass, where they had fallen from their fastenings and run along the ground. It was this hazy tangle from tree to tree which made it all look so mysterious. Mary had thought it must be different from other gardens which had not been left all by themselves so long; and indeed it was different from any other place she had ever seen in her life.
There had once been a flowerbed in it, and she thought she saw something sticking out of the black earth- -some sharp little pale green points. She remembered what Ben Weatherstaff had said and she knelt down to look at them. "Yes, they are tiny growing things and they might be crocuses or snowdrops or daffodils," she whispered. She bent very close to them and sniffed the fresh scent of the damp earth. She liked it very much. "Perhaps there are some other ones coming up in other places," she said. "I will go all over the garden and look." She did not skip, but walked. She went slowly and kept her eyes on the ground. She looked in the old border beds and among the grass, and after she had gone round, trying to miss nothing, she had found ever so many more sharp, pale green points, and she had become quite excited again. "It isn't a quite dead garden," she cried out softly to herself. "Even if the roses are dead, there are other things alive." She did not know anything about gardening, but the grass seemed so thick in some of the places where the green points were pushing their way through that she thought they did not seem to have room enough to grow. She searched about until she found a rather sharp piece of wood and knelt down and dug and weeded out the weeds and grass until she made nice little clear places around them. "Now they look as if they could breathe," she said, after she had finished with the first ones. "I am going to do ever so many more. I'll do all I can see. If I haven't time today I can come tomorrow." She went from place to place, and dug and weeded, and enjoyed herself so immensely that she was led on from bed to bed and into the grass under the trees.
