The Secret Garden

With all the cold and snowy and windy weather we’ve had the past week or so, I’ve been craving comforting things – fleece throws, warm gloves, comforting food (mac and cheese, anyone?) and comfort music fits right in! And one of the most comforting is The Secret Garden. Based on the children’ novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, it tells the story of Mary Lennox, an eleven year old English girl born and raised in India who is orphaned. She is sent to live with her uncle in Yorkshire, where she finds both a neglected garden, and a neglected cousin. Mary’s arrival brings new life to the garden, her cousin and her dour uncle.
