Book Discussion Guide: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (Digital Download)
When her parents die from a cholera epidemic in India, sour, sickly, and self-centered Mary Lennox has no choice but to go live with her uncle, Mr. Archibald Craven, at his mysterious Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire, England. With her uncle constantly away and no playmates to keep her company, Mary spends her time exploring the grounds around the manor. When one of the servants mentions a “secret garden” that was shut up by Mr. Craven because his wife died there, Mary decides to find the garden and uncover the secrets of the manor.
