The Secret Garden ...

I've been sick the last two days (damned flu, begone), so I decided, what better time to start re-reading The Secret Garden (the novel does start with a cholera outbreak, after all).

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.

A fun book to read if you are convalescing. Like me. Which sucks, by the way. ~Alice
