    I know this book seems out of place among the fare I usually read, but hey, all I can say is that I like what I like. There is some intangible quality to this book that really strikes a chord in me. The whole idea of that sickly child being healed with love, attention, and (forgive me an LDS joke) w...

    I am now confused. I do not know anymore what is my preference when it comes to books.When I was a kid, I wanted to read only books with pictures like the illustrated "Alice in the Wonderland" or "Rip Van Winkle". Until I read "Silas Marner" with no pictures and I said, wow, books with no pictures a...

    I first read this wonderful and evocative absolute and utter gem of a story at around age twelve or thirteen (it was likely one of the first longer novels I read entirely in English, not counting those books read for school). I simply adored Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden when I read it...

    Except for the persistent India bashing, I loved this book. In fact Mistress Mary, I loved the ending so much that I forgive your English superiority complex. Next time you visit here though, allow me to take you on the ride across India, I hope your impression will change...

Primarily, it's about three kids: Mistress Mary, Dickon, and Master Colin--and how just thinking a little differently can change a person completely.There's a lot of subtle things Frances Hodgson Burnett does right: The way she relate...

    Book 27/100 of 2015I had to read this for class, but I'm happy that I did! I read A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett when I was younger and loved it, so I'm pleased that I had the chance to read this for a class. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to read an easy classic as I love...

    Where, you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow. Originally published in 1911 The Secret Garden is a true children’s  classic.  One that adults should read as well.  Mary Lennox was born in India.  A plain little girl she was not wanted by her mother or father and consequentl...
