"Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow." Rising from the ashes of tragedy and depression, Frances Hodgson Burnett penned some of her best works, including The Secret Garden (1911), for which she is fondly remembered to this day. Mary Lennox, an orphan, is a discourteous child is sent to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven, in the Yorkshire Moors. There she learns of a secret garden Archibald had locked after his wife's death. Mary is determined on her quest and will not stop till the mystery of the garden is solved. Set in contrast to the dull moors, the garden becomes a symbol of revitalisation, bringing opportunities for renewed strength, compassion and kindness.
