Written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden (1911) traces the story of a pettish young girl, Mary Lennox, as she travels to London from India after being orphaned in a cholera epidemic which took the lives of both of her parents. She settles in her uncle's mansion, Misselthwaite Manor, a "haunted" space with many surprises.
