A secret garden with a tragic past, a mysterious cry, an imposing estate in the English countryside. A human-like robin, a boy named Colin, bedridden by a presumed serious illness, and a girl called Mary, who facing difficulties and making new friendships finds herself growing up in a mysterious and fascinating environment. These are the main ingredients that make Frances Hodgson Burnett's masterpiece The Secret Garden so unique; this book is a cornerstone of children's literature, and an ode to the beauty and irrepressible strength of Nature. The adventures of young Mary, a source of inspiration for generations of readers of all ages, are embellished in this volume by the illustrations by Mariachiara Di Giorgio. With her elegant, almost pictorial hand, she confers the enchantment and stupor of the discovery of a forgotten garden that is brought back to life, together with the protagonists of the novel.

A Little Princess is a children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, first published as a book in 1905. It is an expanded version of the short story Sara Crewe: or, What Happened at Miss Minchin's, which was serialized in St. Nicholas Magazine from December 1887. According to Burnett, after she composed the 1902 play A Little Un-fairy Princess based on that story, her publisher asked that she expand the story as a novel with "e;the things and people that had been left out before"e;. The novel was published by Charles Scribner's Sons (also publisher of St. Nicholas) with illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts and the full title A Little Princess: Being the Whole Story of Sara Crewe Now Being Told for the First Time. Based on a 2007 online poll, the U.S. National Education Association named the book one of its "e;Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children"e;. In 2012 it was ranked number 56 among all-time children's novels in a survey published by School Library Journal, a monthly with primarily U.S. audience. It was the second of two Burnett novels among the Top 100, with The Secret Garden number 15. The novella appears to have been inspired in part by Charlotte Bronts unfinished novel, Emma, the first two chapters of which were published in Cornhill Magazine in 1860, featuring a rich heiress with a mysterious past who is apparently abandoned at a boarding school. Generally, the novel expanded on things in the novella; Captain Crewe's "e;investments"e; are only referred to briefly and generally, and much of the information revealed in conversations in the novel is simply summarised. However, there are details in the novella which were dropped for the novel. While a drudge, Sara is said to have frequented a library, in which she read books about women in rough circumstances being rescued by princes and other powerful men. In addition, Mr. Carrisford's illness is specified as liver trouble.

Pale, selfish and spoilt, the ten-year-old orphan has been sent from India to her uncle's estate and she is determined to hate everything about it.

'I'd read Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden and loved it - so I tried A Little Princess and liked it even more!' Jacqueline Wilson 'Sara Crewe is a Cinderella figure... She is intelligent and good humoured with an infectious warmth that embraces the lowliest of her new acquaintances. The sunshine continues when impoverishment and drudgery befall her and she relies on her private fantasies to preserve her natural zest for life' Guardian 'It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.' When Sara Crewe is sent to Miss Minchin's school for young ladies, her indulgent father provides for her as if she were a little princess. But although her toys and clothes are the envy of the other girls, Sara's kindness and gift for storytelling soon win her lots of friends. Then, the tragic news arrives that her father has died penniless and, without wealth or a guardian, Sara is at the mercy of Miss Minchin. Forced to work from dawn until dusk as the school's unpaid servant, she looks over the rooftops from her damp attic room and dreams of a better life.

The Secret Garden is a children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett first published as a book in 1911, after a version was published as an American magazine serial beginning in 1910. Set in England, it is one of Burnett's most popular novels and is considered a classic of English children's literature. Several stage and film adaptations have been made. The American edition was published by Stokes with illustrations by Maria Louise Kirk (signed as M. L. Kirk) and the British edition by Heinemann with illustrations by Charles Heath Robinson. At the turn of the 20th century, Mary Lennox is a sickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents who never wanted her. She is cared for by servants, who allow her to become a spoiled, aggressive and selfish child. After a cholera epidemic kills her parents and the servants, Mary is discovered alive but alone in the empty house. She briefly lives with an English clergyman and his family before she is sent to Yorkshire, in England, to live with Archibald Craven, an uncle whom she has never met, at his isolated house, Misselthwaite Manor. At first, Mary is as rude and sour as ever. She dislikes her new home, the people living in it, and most of all, the bleak moor on which it sits. However, a good-natured maid named Martha Sowerby tells Mary about the late Mrs Craven, who would spend hours in a private walled garden growing roses. Mrs Craven died after an accident in the garden, and the devastated Mr Craven locked the garden and buried the key. Mary becomes interested in finding the secret garden herself, and her ill manners begin to soften as a result. Soon she comes to enjoy the company of Martha, the gardener Ben Weatherstaff, and a friendly robin redbreast. Her health and attitude improve, and she grows stronger as she explores the moor and plays with a skipping rope that Mrs Sowerby buys for her. Mary wonders about both the secret garden and the mysterious cries that echo through the house at night.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of A Little Princess features illustrations by Reginald Birch and an afterword by publisher Anna South. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

This is the "e;whole Story"e; of Sara Crewe, now told for the first time. All the people that liked Sara Crewe-the "e;slavey"e; who was comforted by the imaginary imprisonment in the Bastile, the little fat girl whose thoughts and affections moved slowly, but in the right direction, "e;Melchisedec the rat, with his squeaky but well-governed family-all these have been told about by Mrs. Burnett in a most simple and delightful way. The story of Sara's griefs and joys, her quaint but effective remedies for her own troubles and for other people's, her pleasures, which she shares with every one, especially with those who read about them, make this book a holiday book in every sense. It is the kind of story that holds little children and grown-ups to the end.

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

The precocious child who encountered the burglar in the house at night and entertained him while he pillaged, so as to save her father, who was asleep in an adjoining room, was a creature of Mrs. Burnett's imagination. She was an entertaining youngster, as self-possessed and mentally alert, in her strange situation, as Lewis Carroll's Alice in her famous interview with the Mock Turtle.

One I Knew The Best Of All

One I Knew The Best Of All

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

To say that Mrs. Burnett's account of 'The One I Knew Best of All' is a fascinating book, is to put the matter very mildly. It is not one little girl alone whose experiences are here recorded, but, as the author justly claims, it is the story of any child with an imagination. Mrs. Burnett's recollections go back to a very early age; she remembers events that happened before she was three years old, and she cannot remember a time when she was not capable of forming decided opinions about things. Mrs. Burnett has written many attractive books-books that have made friends for her all over the world-but she has never written a book more charming than this. The naivete, candor, and utter unpretentiousness of it are qualities that give it an enduring fascination.

Little Saint Elizabeth (and other stories)

Little Saint Elizabeth (and other stories)

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

This volume contains four stories, different in kind, but alike in the grace and spirit of their handling. The pretty tale from which the book borrows its name has for heroine a little French girl brought up in an old chateau in Normandy by an aunt who is recluse and denote. Little Saint Elizabeth is educated very much as her great namesake may have been, in a round of religious observances varied by acts of charity,and is trained to meditate much on the state of her soul and the woes of other people. Her head is filled with legends of saints and martyrs, her heart with zeal to emulate their good examples, and also with deep and tender pity, a real hunger after helpfulness for all human suffering. A child of this type transplanted suddenly while still in childhood to the realistic atmosphere of prosperous New York, must inevitably have much to suffer. She is puzzled ; she is lonely; she has no one to direct her conscience. The quaint little figure blindly trying to guess the riddle of duty under these unfamiliar conditions is pathetic, and Mrs. Burnett touches it in with delicate strokes. We are all glad when at last she finds a friend, and when Uncle Bertrand learns to recognize and allow for the spiritual need which is the mainspring of her nature.

Lady of Quality

Lady of Quality

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

The period of the tale is the reign of Queen Anne, and it is written in the language of the period-an audacious undertaking when one remembers that such a style must invite comparison with that of "e; Henry Esmond."e; Mrs. Burnett has written the story of a girl whose mother died in giving her birth, and who has grown to young womanhood under no softer influence than that of her father, who is a swaggering, sporting, hard-drinking squire of those easy-going days. So slight is his interest in domestic affairs that he doesn't know his own daughter-as she plays about the hall, at six years of age, with the young children of the servants-until she is pointed out to him. The child's ingrained audacity strikes her father's fancy, and he declares she shall be reared as a boy, and allowed to do as she likes. Thenceforward she dresses in boy's clothes, and has for companions only such rough friends as her father gathers about him ...

In Connection with De Willoughby Claim

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

The novel consists of two plots or movements. Apparently wholly disconnected, but always, as the logic of events carries them on, bending nearer and nearer, until the principal dramatis personae meet in Washington, the keystone is slipped into place, and lo, the two are one! Mrs. Burnett possesses consummate constructive skill. When this keystone crowns the arch we see that every character and every event has contributed to the symmetry of the whole. Every part has been wrought and fitted with the artist's instinct for perfection. But analogies cannot be pushed too far, and the similitude of the arch may give a false impression of the two lines along which the story moves. They are, in their nature, wholly unlike. The one, from an opening doubly tragic, passes into the sweetest of idyls; the other from the fairest beginning into the darkest of tragedies.

"e;The Making of a Marchioness"e; and "e;The Methods of Lady Walderhurst,"e; although actually continuous, were published separately in some countries. "e;Emily Fox-Seton"e; is the combination of two in one volume. The rather commonplace hero and heroine, who, however, made such a romantic marriage, remain the same as to disposition, but placid Emily in her placid way goes through the most romantic and exciting adventures.

Two Little Pilgrims' Progress

Two Little Pilgrims' Progress

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

In "e;Two Little Pilgrims' Progress "e; Mrs. Burnett is at her best. It is the story of two children - a little boy and girl - brought up on a Western farm, where they have been neglected by their aunt with whom they live, and who find their chief happiness in reading Bunyan's "e;Pilgrim's Progress "e; in a corner of the barn. Just then they hear of what must have been a glimpse of fairyland to so many Western children, the White City of the Chicago Exhibition, and they make up their minds to take their small savings and go to see the wonder. This is their pilgrims' progress, and their adventures, which in the end result most happily, are told by Mrs. Burnett in her well-known delightful manner. A book that has the potential to rival even "e;Fauntleroy "e; in popularity.

Shuttle

Shuttle

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

This is decidedly Mrs. Burnett's biggest novel, and one that has created widespread comment from the readers of the Century Magazine, where it has been appearing in serial form. The plot is based on an international marriage between a rich American girl and a degenerate English nobleman. The wife is very unhappy, and finally her husband makes her break with her own family, but when her sister is grown up she comes to the rescue and takes things into her own hands. She is a splendid type of the modern American girl and a heroine to whom all hearts are offered. The character drawings are particularly life-like, and the whole story is handled with masterful skill, while the style has a literary finish that is exceptional in fiction.

Secret Garden

Secret Garden

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

An all-time childrens' classic and a pretty story of a wallcd-in garden in Yorkshire, which is discovered by little Mary Lennox and a robin. She was a lonely, delicate little girl who had been sent from India to be cared for by an uncle who was twisted in body, and in mind through the tragedy of his young wife's death. Colin, his little son, is a spoiled invalid, but he and Mary Lennox and a Yorkshire lad called Dickon, who can charm all wild things of the moor, and old Ben Weatherstaff, a crabbed gardener, and the robin all share the "e;secret garden,"e; and plant things and trim vines and watch things grow. The garden belonged to Colin's mother, and had lain neglected until Mary found the buried key. Here they regained health and happiness, and Colin's father returns from his travels to find his son straight and strong, and not deformed as he had feared.

T. Tembarom

T. Tembarom

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

Imagine Mrs. Burnett saying to herself: "e;I think I will rewrite Little Lord Fauntleroy for grown-up readers, but instead of having him the carefully nurtured son of a refined and loving mother, he shall have had the harsher training of Dick the bootblack, a product of the New York streets."e; Whether consciously or not, that at all events is precisely what Mrs. Burnett has done in T. Tembarom, which mysterious and cryptic name is simply a convenient abbreviation of the hero's more aristocratic appellation of Temple Temple Barholm. A young man of twenty odd years, who has slept in cellars and barrels, has roughed it from the days of his earliest remembrance and fought his way to a position as editor of the Harlem social page on a New York daily paper; a young man whose ignorance of history, geography, and practically everything which most educated persons are expected to know is monumental,-such a man offers a chance for curious and amusing contrasts on a far larger scale than a small boy like Little Lord Fauntleroy, when suddenly injected into the utterly foreign environment of British aristocracy.

A tale of faerie, touched with mysticism, instinct with romance and courage and the spirit of consecration to an ideal of splendid service.

A remarkable story, which probably marked a unique experiment in fiction at the time it was first published. In it Mrs. Burnett has written the mans' side of the story, the woman side of which was given in her very successful "e;Lady of Quality"e; - and she has thus given an additional piquancy and interest to a story which could not have failed to be most widely read for its intrinsic strength and its forceful delineation of characters.

Piccino (and other Child Stories)

Piccino (and other Child Stories)

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

Child stories by Frances Hodgson Burnett are among the best of their kind. Those terrible "e;Two Days in the Life of Piccino"e; are enough to make one shake-with laughter. Piccino was a "e;Gesu bambino,"e; pretty as a Christ-child in a picture, who lived with his parents, his sister Maria, and a donkey and a dog, in the outskirts of Ceriani, an old town of the Italian Riviera, and who was early initiated into the art and mystery of drawing soldi out of foreigners' pockets. A rich English lady took a fancy to see just how pretty a bambino Piccino might be if he were washed, and bought him for the purpose. Then began his frightful two days of scrubbings and rubbings, of indigestible mutton-chops and destitution of garlic, from which he ran away, and which furnished him with matter to talk and think over for the rest of his life. The other stories tell how "e;The Captain's Youngest "e; prevented his sister's elopement; how '' Little Betty's Kitten "e; had excellent times with her mistress, and "e;How Fauntleroy Occurred"e;-that is, in the most natural way in the world. They are none the worse for being a trifle "e;grown-up,"e; and for reminding one a little of Ouida.

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 18/05/2017

While the eight short stories which are bound together under the title of "e;Surly Tim' and Other Stories,"e; take in a wide range of subjects, while the characters are distinct and the individuals unlike, there is still a singular oneness in the artistic motive of them all, which gives to them a strong but subtle resemblance, and stamps them as the product of the same mind. "e;Surly Tim"e; is one of the most touching and powerful short stories ever to be read, but other stories like "e;Esmeralda,"e; "e;Lodusky,"e; "e; Le Monsieur de la Petite Dame,"e; etc., show a literary power as varied in scene as it is remarkable in quality.

A little Italian boy with a beautiful voice, who comforted Mrs. Burnett when she mourned for her son at San Remo, is the hero of the first story. It is slightly autobiographical, introducing the writer and her tender reminiscences of her lost boy. "e;The boy who became a Socialist"e; is a pleasant sketch of "e; Geof,' her second son. The other stories deal with children she has met all over the world-princes and peasants-and are full of a delightful humor.

That Lass O'Lowrie's

That Lass O'Lowrie's

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 27/04/2017

The conception of this book is admirable, and it embodies in a most impressive manner a thought, or rather a sentiment, which is not new, but which is widespread and strong, and which has never before been born into flesh and blood. The existence of such a noble soul and such noble beauty as Joan Lowrie's, in a condition of life so low and so coarsening as that of a Lancashire coal-pit girl, has doubtless occurred to other minds as among the possibilities; but it has been reserved for Mrs. Burnett to show us the workings of such a woman's soul, to make us feel the influence of such a woman's beauty, to develop her before us by varied influences into a thoughtful, gentle woman, to let us see her love for a man so much above her that she deems herself hardly fit to speak to him grow into the one absorbing passion of her life, which she yet sacrifices in mute agony rather than put him to shame.

Haworth's

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 27/04/2017

' Haworth's' is a product of genius of a very high order, a piece of work which will hold a permanent place in literature; one of those masterly performances that rise wholly above the plane of light literature upon which novels are generally placed."e;-- Evening Post. "e;It is but faint praise to speak of 'Haworth's' as merely a good novel. It is one of the few great novels. . . . As a story it is alive throughout with a thrilling interest which does not flat; from beginning to end, and, besides the story, there is in it a wonderfully clever study of human nature."e;-Hartford Courant. ''' Haworth's' will unquestionably be acknowledged one of the great literary achievements of the day. The chief feature is its intense dramatic power. It consists almost wholly of vividly-presented pictures, which so impress themselves on the mind of the reader, that the effect is more that of seeing the story acted than of reading it."e;-Boston Post.

Louisiana

Louisiana

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 27/04/2017

A lady from New York, whose surroundings have been those chiefly of literature and art, is alone at a North Carolina watering-place, and amuses herself with a new and interesting type of Southern native humanity, a young girl of great beauty and simplicity, but utterly ignorant of the world in which Miss Olivia Ferrol has lived. The pathos of the story, while there is a touch of unreality about it, is fine and pervading, while the special charm is in the pictures of mountain life in North-Carolina. The book is graceful, and if the plot is a trifle artificial the execution is so skillfully and affectionately done that we are almost ready to forgive the author for limiting herself as she has.

"e;Pretty, overdressed, jewel-bedecked Octavia Bassett,"e; of Nevada, is one of the most fascinating characters that Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett ever drew. The story of the visit of this dashing young American girl to her father's sister in the staid, respectable, ultra-conservative English village of Slowbridge, and of the consternation which she produced in the society of that place by her frank speech, her dazzling toilets and her unconventional ways, is told with uncommon freshness and spirit in 'A Fair Barbarian'. The sharp contrasts suggested by the presence amid the stiffness and primness of Slowbridge society of this breezy, brilliant, self-possessed young beauty, whose mother was an actress in San Francisco, whose father is a silver mine owner and who has passed a portion of her life in the mining camps of Nevada, are made the most of by Mrs. Burnett.

A wonderfully powerful and interesting story of modern life and political intrigues in Washington, full of dramatic intensity and vivid portraiture. As a story of Washington life, dealing largely with what might be called social politics, it is certainly a success. As a society novel, it is indeed quite perfect; for while full justice is done to the frivolity and hollowncss of society, and to the fatal effect upon the sweetest and brightest natures of too much society, there is shown delicate appreciation of the fair and noble side of the social culture which both springs from and develops loftiness of nature and generosity of soul.

Little Princess

Little Princess

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 13/04/2017

A Little Princess is a children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The novella appears to have been inspired in part by Charlotte Bronts unfinished novel, Emma, the first two chapters of which were published in Cornhill Magazine in 1860, featuring a rich heiress with a mysterious past who is apparently abandoned at a boarding school. The thread of the book is evident in the novella, in which Sara Crewe is left at Miss Minchin's, loses her father, is worked as a drudge, and is surprised with the kindness of an Indian gentleman who turns out to be Captain Crewe's friend. However, at just over one-third the length of the later book, the novella is much less detailed. Generally, the novel expanded on things in the novella; Captain Crewe's "e;investments"e; are only referred to briefly and generally, and much of the information revealed in conversations in the novel is simply summarised. However, there are details in the novella which were dropped for the novel. While a drudge, Sara is said to have frequented a library, in which she read books about women in rough circumstances being rescued by princes and other powerful men. In addition, Mr. Carrisford's illness is specified as liver trouble. After writing Sara Crewe, Burnett returned to the material in 1902, penning the three-act stage play A Little Un-fairy Princess, which ran in London over the autumn of that year. Burnett said that after the production of the play on Broadway, her publisher, Charles Scribner's Sons asked her to expand the story into a full-length novel and "e;put into it all the things and people that had been left out before."e; The book was illustrated by Ethel Franklin Betts[8] and published in 1905 under the full title A Little Princess: Being the Whole Story of Sara Crewe Now Being Told for the First Time.

Before long, Mary finds a key to a secret garden that has been left untouched for ten years, and a whole new world of enchantment opens up to her. For the first time she learns to make friends - with the talented animal-charmer, Dickon, and her sickly cousin, Colin, who has been hidden away behind closed doors - and between them, the three children truly flourish as the garden reveals its haunting secrets. First published in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett's story is one of the best-loved children's books of the early twentieth century. Marking the centenary of the novel, this beautiful new edition brings together the complete and unabridged text with over seventy evocative illustrations and botanical studies by the award-winning artist Robert Ingpen.

Secret Garden

Secret Garden

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett Format: eBook Release Date: 27/12/2015

Mary Lennox is a sour-faced 10-year-old girl, who is born in India to selfish wealthy British parents who had not wanted her and were too wrapped up in their own lives. She was taken care of primarily by servants, who pacified her as much as possible to keep her out of the way. Spoiled and with a temper, she is unaffectionate, angry, rude and obstinate. Later, there is a cholera epidemic which hits India and kills her mother, father and all the servants. She is discovered alone but alive after the house is empty. She is sent to Yorkshire, England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven at his home called Misselthwaite Manor. At first, Mary is her usual self, sour and rude, disliking her uncle's large house, the people within it, and most of all the vast stretch of moor, which seems scrubby and grey after the winter. She is told that she must stay confined to her two rooms and that nobody will bother much with her and she must amuse herself. Martha Sowerby, her good-natured maidservant, tells Mary a story of the late Mrs. Craven, and how she would spend hours in a private garden growing roses. Later, Mrs. Craven was killed in an accident, and Mr. Craven had the garden locked and the key buried. Mary is roused by this story and starts to soften her ill manner despite herself. Soon she begins to lose her disposition and gradually comes to enjoy the company of Martha, Ben Weatherstaff the gardener, and also that of a friendly robin redbreast to whom she attaches human qualities. Her appetite increases and she finds herself getting stronger as she plays by herself on the moor. Martha's mother buys Mary a skipping rope to encourage this, and she takes to it immediately. Mary's time is occupied by wondering about the secret garden and a strange crying sound that can sometimes be heard around the house which the servants ignore or deny. Whilst exploring the gardens, Mary is alerted to some turned up soil by the inquisitive robin, and finds a key belonging to the locked garden. She chances to ask Martha for garden tools, which Martha has delivered by Dickon, her twelve-year-old brother. Mary and Dickon take a liking to each other, as Dickon has a soft way with animals and a good nature. Eager to absorb his gardening knowledge, Mary lets him into the secret of the garden, which he agrees to keep. That night, Mary hears the crying again. She follows the noise and, to her surprise, finds a small boy her age, living in a hidden bedroom. His name is Colin and she discovers that they are cousins: he is the son of her uncle; his mother died when he was a baby, and he suffers from an unspecified problem with his spine. Mary visits every day that week, distracting him from his troubles with stories of the moor, of Dickon and his animals and of the garden. It is decided he needs fresh air and the secret garden, which Mary finally admits she has access to. Colin is put into his wheelchair and brought outside into the garden, the first time he's been outdoors in years. While in the garden, the children are surprised to see Ben Weatherstaff looking over the wall on a ladder. Startled and angry to find the children there in his late mistress' (Colin's mother's) garden he admits he believed Colin to be a cripple. Colin stands up out of his chair to prove him wrong and finds that his legs are fine, though weak from not using them for a long time. Colin spends every day in the garden, becoming stronger. The children conspire to keep Colin's health a secret so he can surprise his father, who is travelling and mourning over his late wife. As Colin's health improves, his father's mood does as well, and he has a dream of his wife calling him into the garden that makes him immediately pack his bags and head home. He walks the outer wall in memory but hears voices inside, finds the door unlocked and is shocked to see the garden in full bloom with children in it and his son running around. The servants watch as Mr. Craven walks back to the manor, and all are stunned that Colin runs beside him. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

It was the lock of the door which had been closed ten years and she put her hand in her pocket, drew out the key and found it fitted the keyhole. She put the key in and turned it. It took two hands to turn it, but it did turn. And then she took a long breath and looked behind her up the long walk to see if anyone was coming. No one was coming. No one ever did it seemed, and she took another long breath, because she could not help it, and she held back the swinging curtain of ivy and pushed back the door that opened slowly - slowly. Then she slipped through it, and shut it behind her, and stood with her back against it, looking about her and breathing quite fast with excitement, and wonder, and delight. She was standing inside the secret garden. - From author Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden (1911)
